A postdoctoral position is available from February 1st, 2008, for 3 years, to 
study the network mechanisms underlying spatial processing and spatial memory 
in mammals. 

The research, to be carried out within the LIMBO group at SISSA, is part of 
a collaboration coordinated by Edvard Moser, and funded by the EU contract 
SPACEBRAIN. It includes another theoretical group, led by Misha Tsodyks at the 
Weizmann, and experimental labs in Trondheim, London, Zurich and Heidelberg. 
At SISSA, activity will focus on mathematical analyses of neural network 
models, on network simulations and on the analysis of neural activity recorded 
by the collaborating labs.
 
The ideal candidate is one who brings into the project a perspective different 
from mine, who is a proficient programmer and a creative thinker. A lack of 
familiarity with grid cells, the hippocampus and spatial navigation may be 
advantageous, if combined with an open mind and plastic synapses. The tiny but 
vibrant Cognitive Neuroscience sector of SISSA includes groups led by Mathew 
Diamond, Tim Shallice, Raffaella Rumiati and Jacques Mehler and is temporarily 
located in downtown Trieste. I will review applications from Dec 1st, and 
until the position is filled.
