[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral position at the University Pierre&Marie

Wed Mar 28 16:16:33 CEST 2007
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.
