A position for a postdoctoral or more senior research associate in human and monkey electrophysiology is available in Sabine Kastner's Neuroscience of Attention & Perception Laboratory (NA&P Lab) at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. The lab studies neural mechanisms of cognition in the primate brain. Intracranial recordings from human epilepsy patients and non-human primates are conducted using identical behavioral paradigms and combined with computational approaches. For more information, please go to our web site (https://scholar.princeton.edu/napl).
We are seeking an extremely motivated postdoctoral researcher with background in human or monkey electrophysiology. Studies will include simultaneous recordings from multiple, interconnected brain regions. The researcher will gain experience with the use of laminar probes to study attention networks in a behaving animal model together with parallel studies in humans. The lab is integrated into several collaborative centers, and there is plenty of opportunity for interdisciplinary research, including deriving computational models.
Postdoctoral researchers are given the opportunity to participate in other lab research endeavors, and they are expected to make a strong contribution to the lab's overall research efforts. Training also includes an introduction to various advanced neuroimaging methodologies. This is a one-year term position with the possibility of renewal contingent upon performance and continued funding.
Essential qualifications for these positions include: a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Bioengineering, Applied Math, Computer Science, Psychology, or other closely related fields. Experience working with behaving non-human primates and/or background in electrophysiology of the visual system are preferred. All candidates must possess strong quantitative skills (e.g. Matlab, C++, Python). This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
