NIH-Funded Post-Doctoral Position – The Auditory and Communication Systems Laboratory
The Auditory and Communication Systems Laboratory is seeking applications for an NIH-funded Post-doctoral position to work with marmoset monkeys. The laboratory is interested in vocal communication and sensory processing in the auditory cortex. We have particular interest in the neural basis of social communication, sensory coding in the auditory system during both vocal perception and production, sensory-motor control of voice, and auditory coding in in naturalistic environments. Marmosets are an increasingly popular model system in neuroscience, with the advantage of being a non-human primate, readily used in a variety of neuroscience and behavioral contexts, but with the potential to take advantage of modern genetic and optical techniques. The work combines social behavior, auditory psychophysics, speech sciences, motor control, sensory coding, and ensemble neural recordings.
Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent degree) related to neuroscience, engineering, physics, psychology, or a similar field.
Preferred candidates have a background in animal behavior and/or neural recording.
The lab is currently located at the University of Pennsylvania, but will be shortly relocating to Duke University.
Appointment will be for 12-months, renewable annually.
Salary will be commensurate with experience and consistent with NIH stipends.
Start dates are flexible based upon candidate qualifications.
