post-doc in systems auditory neuroscience at U. Pennsylvania

We are seeking highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to participate in a research program that tests the neural bases of sound perception. This research will be conducted at the University of Philadelphia. The goals of these projects are to test the contribution of various regions of the auditory cortex and prefrontal cortex to sound perception in non-human primates. The positions are funded through a new R01 and are available immediately. Salary will be based on experience and the NIH post-doctoral scale. The University of Pennsylvania has an outstanding environment for neuroscience; in particular, systems and computational neuroscience. The environment is further enriched by the PI’s ongoing collaborations with other members of the Penn Neuroscience community. For more information or to apply, contact Yale Cohen (YaleECohen@xxxxxxxxx). Interested applicants should send a CV; a brief statement of research interests; and names of 2-3 referees.

Candidates should have a PhD. Those with an MD will be considered but only if the candidates have a strong scientific background. A strong candidate will have experience in systems and computational neuroscience; recording and analysis of single- and multi-unit activity and local-field potentials from awake, behaving animals (in particular non-human primates); experience in training animals on operant tasks; analysis of behavioral data and electrophysiological data; computational-analysis skills; and programming skills. We are interested in individuals who have a good personality and can interact well with other members of the laboratory.
