Apologies for multiple postings if you are subscribed to several groups.

Announcement of postdoctoral position in computational/theoretical 
neuroscience at the Center for Neural Systems, Caltech --

Available: 1 fully-funded postdoctoral position to collaborate with me 
and the greater systems neuroscience community at Caltech. I'm looking 
for individuals who are interested in understanding neural codes and 
dynamics  in neural networks that underlie complex behaviors (for 
example, but not limited to, singing in songbirds, navigation using 
hippocampal and entorhinal circuits in rodents, and odor coding in 
insects). Work will be carried out in collaboration with relevant 
systems neuroscience experimental labs at Caltech and elsewhere.

Candidates should have a strong quantitative background in Physics, 
Mathematics, Engineering, or Computer Science. The start date is 
flexible, but with a preference for begining in Spring 2007. The initial 
appointment will be for 1 year with a possibility of an extension. 
Ability to program in Matlab and C, and some knowledge of neuroscience a 
plus, but not necessary. If interested, please contact me 
(ilafiete at caltech.edu) with a copy of your cv or resume, a statement of 
research interestes, and 3 letters of reference.
