A postdoctoral position funded by the NIH is immediately available in the laboratory of Professor John Reynolds at the Salk Institute. The postdoctoral fellow will work with Dr. Reynolds on a collaborative project involving experimentalists (Reynolds and Mark Histed, NIH) and theoreticians (Ken Miller, Columbia University; Nicolas Brunel, Duke) in which we will use computational modeling, multi-channel electrophysiology, visual psychophysics and cutting edge optogenetic approaches to simultaneously and independently drive activity of excitatory and inhibitory neurons in the primary visual cortex of non-human primates and mice to probe neural mechanisms of visual perception. The position is fully funded for two years, with the potential for extending funding upon successful completion of initial project goals.
