Computational neuroscience position in primate neurophysiology.
University of Arizona, College and Medicine,
Department of Physiology, Tucson.
We are inviting the application of computational neuroscientists at any level (doctoral, postdoctoral and staff scientists) to work on the neural basis of emotion and natural social behaviors in non-human primates. The applicant will work in a team of established expertise in neurophysiology and will have access to data collected with the most advanced technology (large ensembles of simultaneously recorded neurons and LFP's from multiple brain areas). Strong programming and computational skill are required to analyze and interpret the activity patterns of populations of neurons recorded from multiple areas of the brain. The activity pattern of large populations of single units and local field potentials will be related to ongoing behaviors and autonomic changes (such as heart rate, skin conductance, pupil diameter, and respiration). The broad interest of the laboratory is the role of the primate amygdala in real life social interactions mediated by facial expressions, eye contact, and touch. The position is available immediately, with a competitive/negotiable salary commensurate with prior experience. For more information about the lab please visit http://www.gothardlab.org/. Please contact professor Gothard at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about this opportunity.
