A postdoctoral position in monkey fMRI

A postdoctoral position to conduct monkey fMRI studies of sensory cortical processing is available in Dr. Anna Roe's lab in ziint. This project will examine at high spatial resolution brain circuitry underlying visually guided reach and grasp in awake, behaving monkeys. Object features such as object shape, size, texture, and weight will be examined.

Questions will center on cortical foveal representation, manual digit representation, and interactiions betweenvisual and somatosensory processing. Studies will be conducted in 4.7Tvertical magnet. Other methodologies developed in PI's lab, including optical imaging, neurophysiology, focal brain stimulation methods (electrical, pulsed near infrared stimulation, and optogenetics stimulation), and anatomy will be used in conjunction.

Candidates should have a strong research background in neuroscience, animal work, neurophysiology, optical imaging, and/or fMRI. Familiarity with Matlab, statistical methods, or computational methods is a plus. Candidate should have ability to work both independently and as part of a team with other neuroscientists, MR physcists, and animal care personnel.
