Postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience

Northwestern University
Evanston, IL

A postdoctoral position is available at Northwestern University to develop
computer simulations of deep brain stimulation.  The project involves a
combination of computing, mathematical modeling, and interpretation of 
clinical data.  The computing component will be to adapt a novel algorithm
to a parallel computing cluster.  The modeling will involve the development
of a full morphology model from the basal ganglia region which is able to
reproduce periodic cycles associated with Parkinsons disease, and to develop
a model for a neurostimulator.  All results will be compared with 
interoperative data.  The applicant will work with a dynamic interdisciplinary
team consisting of an applied mathematician, physiologist, and a neurosurgeon.
The successful applicant will have experience in neurophysiology.  Programming
experience is preferrable, but prior experience in parallel computing is not
required.  The position is available to start now, actual start date is
