A postdoctoral position funded by the NIH is immediately available at the Center for Neurobiology of Vision at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, California. The postdoctoral fellow will be working with Dr. Thomas D. Albright and Dr. Sergei Gepshtein who combine expertise in single-cell physiology in awake non-human primates, sensory psychophysics, and mathematical modeling of sensory mechanisms and perceptual behavior. The postdoctoral fellow will be invited to combine these methodologies, and pursue research questions concerning adaptive encoding of sensory information, perceptual organization, and psychophysical scaling.
Ph.D. is required.
