The scientists will perform state of the art electrophysiological, psychophysical, optogenetic and imaging experiments in monkeys.

The successful candidate should have experience with electrophysiological techniques; a strong background in computational methods; and a proven track record (e.g. first-author publications) in Neuroscience. UCLA has a vibrant Neuroscience community with many investigators who use similar techniques and/or who are interested in similar scientific problems.
