Computational Neurobiology postdoc position available in the  
Laboratory of Neurobiology of Adaptive Processes (http:// 

* Institution: CNRS - University Pierre&Marie Curie (http:// 

* Starting date: June 1, 2007.

* Duration: the appointment is for a period of one year (with a  
renewal for a second year contingent on availability of funding).

* The project will promote the collaboration between the "Neural  
networks and physiopathological rhythms" team led by N. Leresche et  
R. Lambert and the "Adaptive Neurocomputation" team led by A. Arleo.  
These two groups explore the mechanisms underlying the thalamo- 
cortical multisensory integration process by means of experimental  
and modeling approaches, respectively. The postdoctoral fellow will  
develop a computational model investigating the thalamic processes of  
regulation of intrinsic conductances and synaptic responses recently  
observed in the host lab. The primary objective will be to predict  
how this thalamic excitability regulation may influence the sensory  
information transfer/integration to/into the cortex.

* The ideal candidate has a PhD, has good computational modeling  
skills, and is competent in programming (e.g. using C/C++ language).  
Some knowledge of neurobiology is more than welcome, although is not  
a sine qua non condition. Still, because the work will require a tied  
interaction with experimentalists, the candidate has to be willing to  
learn the necessary biology background.

* Candidates should send their application (including a CV, a list of  
publications, a brief statement of previous research and email  
addresses and phone numbers of at least two references) as a single  
pdf file to angelo.arleo at snv.jussieu.fr.
