POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN IMAGE ANALYSIS/COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE

FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on advanced image analysis
techniques, single particle tracking and/or neural plasticity modeling is
available for a highly motivated candidate at Washington University School
of Medicine. We are a recently established lab dedicated to studying (1)
the mechanisms of synaptic transmission at individual synapses and (2) the
role of rapid synaptic plasticity in information processing by individual
synapses and neural circuits. Several current projects have translational
emphasis on the dysfunction in information processing in neurological
disorders such as mental retardation and Alzheimer’s. The lab utilizes
cutting-edge imaging and electrophysiological tools in combination with
sophisticated image analysis and computational techniques to approach
these questions. More information can be found on the lab web site:
http://www.med.nyu.edu/research/klyacv01.html

Successful candidates will be in charge of the computational aspects of
these projects and will be able to combine them with experimental
approaches if desired. Qualified applicants are expected to hold a
doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in physics, engineering or life sciences, have
extensive experience in image/data analysis techniques and
computational/statistical methods. In depth knowledge of Matlab is
essential.

Trainees will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research
environment at Washington University, which has been consistently ranked
among the top five Medical Research Centers in the country. Highly
competitive salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with
experience. A salary supplement of up to 55-57k/year is available on a
competitive basis through the Hope Center Fellowship Program
http://www.hcnd.org

Interested applicants should provide their CV, a brief description of
research interests, and the names of three references via email to:
