Neuroethology of learning and perception
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the neural basis of learning and perception in songbirds. Using electrophysiological, behavioral, computational and molecular approaches, my lab investigates how the brain processes and perceives social signals, and how both perception and the underlying neural mechanisms are shaped by experience as well as evolution. More information about my work is available at http://biology.mcgill.ca/faculty/woolley.
The work will be done in the Department of Biology at McGill University. Located in downtown Montreal, McGill offers a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative training environment in the center of a unique, safe and international city.
Required qualifications: The ideal candidate should have experience in neurophysiology and animal behavior as well as excellent experimental design, analytical, and communication skills and experience using standard programming and statistical software (e.g. Matlab, R). A PhD in neuroscience or a related discipline is required prior to the appointment.
The appointment is for two years, with the possibility of extending for another one to two years. To apply, please send a CV, statement of research interests and contact information for two referees to: firstname.lastname@example.org
