Post-doctoral position in Amsterdam/Netherlands

Job ID


The Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience/The Vision & cognition group has an exciting opportunity for a
PhD student position
or a
Postdoctoral researcher position
to work on the neuronal mechanisms for object perception.

Project description
Neuronal mechanisms for perceptual organization
The perception of objects and their segregation from cluttered backgrounds requires interactions between lower and higher areas of the visual cortex. In this project we will simultaneously record from low-level and higher-level cortical areas of the temporal stream in monkeys trained on tasks that rely on object vision. We compare the activity of neurons in the different brain areas to the tuning of units in deep neural networks, to elucidate the contributions of feedforward and feedback connections between brain areas.
Starting date
The position is available from Mid 2020

To apply
Please, send your application to including:
1. A Curriculum Vitae
2. An application letter
3. Two (for PhD applicants) or three (for postdoctoral applicants) reference letters
