The Computational Neuroscience Unit at the Okinawa Institute of
Science and Technology (http://www.oist.jp), Japan is looking for
postdocs/group leaders to work on:
- reaction-diffusion modeling of signaling pathways involved in
- cellular modeling of Purkinje cells with an emphasis on channel
Candidates should have experience in bottom-up modeling of neural
systems and have used relevant software packages (like Kinetikit,
MCell, Neuron or GENESIS, etc). They should be interested in using
computational approaches like those described in:
F. Santamaria, S. Wils, E. De Schutter and G.J. Augustine: Anomalous
diffusion in Purkinje cell dendrites caused by dendritic spines.
Neuron 52: 635-648 (2006).
P. Achard and E. De Schutter: Complex parameter landscape for a
complex neuron model. PLoS Computational Biology 2: e94 (2006).
V. Steuber, W. Mittmann, F.E. Hoebeek, R.A. Silver, C.I. De Zeeuw, M.
Häusser and E. De Schutter: Cerebellar LTD and pattern recognition by
Purkinje cells. Neuron 53: 121-136 (2007).
The Computational Neuroscience Unit is housed in the Seaside House of
OIST, a very attractive English language working environment. OIST
offers good financial conditions: a salary commensurate with previous
experience and family situation, a housing allowance and a relocation
Duration of initial appointments will depend on previous experience,
appointments can last up to 5 years. Appointments can start anytime
Send curriculum vitae, summary of previous experience and research
interests, and the names of three referees to Prof. Erik De Schutter
