Announcement: PhD and Postdoc positions available!

Multiple PhD and post-doctoral positions are available immediately in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Montana State University in Jamie Mazer and Charlie Gray’s labs to study visual perception and attention. Positions are funded by a multi-site collaborative NSF EPSCoR project studying the neural bases of visual attention across a range of species (rodents, non-human primates and humans) involving labs at Dartmouth, Brown and the University of Nevada at Reno. Students and postdocs will have ample opportunities to collaborate with and visit labs at the partner institutions.

Applicants should have a background in neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science/math or a related field. Prior research experience and computer skills (Python and/or Matlab) are required for post-doctoral applicants and preferred for PhD candidates.

The Montana State University campus is located in beautiful Bozeman, MT, a lively college town in the Rocky Mountains, just North of Yellowstone National Park. The area is a year-round tourist destination home to world-class hiking, skiing, climbing, biking, fishing, etc, mostly within a few miles of campus.

Both PhD and post-doc applications will be accepted until available positions are filled (PhD program has rolling admission). Please contact Jamie Mazer for more information or to arrange a meeting at the SFN meeting in San Diego next week.
