I am starting a new Computational Neuroscience unit at the Okinawa  
Institute of Science and Technology, Japan in 2007.

We have several openings for postdocs, PhD students and software  
engineers in the following topics:
-   molecular modeling of synaptic plasticity
-   cellular modeling of Purkinje cells
-   modeling of channel and synaptic homeostasis
-   development of software to model neuron growth

PhD candidates can have diverse backgrounds, postdoc candidates  
should have experience in computational neuroscience. Proficiency in  
spoken and written English is required.

For more information on the work in the unit see http:// 
www.tnb.ua.ac.be and recent publications:

on gain modulation. Neural Computation 17: 2531-2547 (2005).

We offer attractive financial and working conditions in an English  
language environment.  Duration of initial appointments will depend  
on previous experience, appointments can last up to 5 years. More
