We have an open position for a highly motivated postdoctoral associate using electrophysiology in marmoset monkeys. Research in the laboratory focuses on the neural basis of cognition. We employ high-density neurophysiological recordings using neuropixels probes and also wireless array recordings in marmoset monkeys to study local and large-scale neural circuits that underlie the cognitive control of behaviour.
The laboratory (http://everling-lab.com) is located in London, Ontario, Canada with a metropolitan census of 530,000, located midway between Toronto and Detroit. With parks, tree-lined streets and bicycle trails, London is known as the “Forest City”. London boasts an international airport, galleries, theatre, music and sporting events. As part of the Robarts Research Institute, the Brain and Mind Institute, and Brainscan at Western University, we offer an outstanding research environment and excellent opportunities for collaborative research in visual and cognitive neuroscience.
Applicants should have a PhD in neuroscience or other relevant fields. We are especially interested in candidates with either prior experience in the analysis of electrophysiological data. Experience with nonhuman primates or rodents is a plus but not a requirement.
Applications should include a cover letter, a CV, list of publications, and names (incl. contact info) of 2 possible references. Please send your application to severlin[at]uwo.ca
We are looking for excellent graduate students for our neuroimaging and neurophysiological studies in marmoset monkeys. Previous programming experience is a plus.
Students will be enrolled in the Neuroscience Graduate Program.
