Postdoctoral Research Positions

The Department offers a wealth of opportunities for postdoctoral research in the wide range of scientific disciplines represented in the Brain & Cognitive Sciences. The centrality of the department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences among associated programs in Visual Science, Computer Science, Linguistics, and Neuroscience represented in the University makes the department a particularly attractive place for interdisciplinary research. Postdoctoral fellows often work with more than one member of faculty.

Admission and Support

Scientists interested in postdoctoral study should in the first instance contact the faculty member (or members) with whom they might wish to work. Postdoctoral fellows are supported from a variety of sources: some receive support through individual investigator's research grants; some receive stipends from training grants held by members of the Department; some are supported by individual fellowships.

Postdoctoral position in systems neuroscience, University of Rochester

A postdoctoral position in Systems Neuroscience is available at the University of Rochester, in the laboratory of Dr. Greg DeAngelis. This position is part of a recently funded NIH project on the neural mechanisms of steering control. The project involves psychophysics and large-scale electrophysiology in non-human primates, combined with computational approaches. Successful candidates will join a highly dynamic and collaborative group at the Center for Visual Science, with strong theoretical/computational collaborators. Previous work from the laboratory has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of the neural basis of motion perception, depth perception, multisensory integration, and self-motion perception (see published works).

Candidates are expected to have a background in neuroscience, experimental psychology, biomedical engineering, or a related field, and previous research experience in systems neuroscience is highly beneficial. Candidates should submit their CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to

Visual Science
