FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on Computational Neuroscience
is available for a highly motivated candidate at New York 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 functional neural circuits. The lab
utilizes cutting-edge imaging and electrophysiological tools in
combination with image analysis and computational techniques to approach
these questions. More information can be found on the lab web site:


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 math, physics, engineering or life sciences,
have extensive experience in computational/statistical methods or image
analysis techniques. In depth knowledge of Matlab is essential.

Trainees will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research
environment in a brand new Smilow Research Center at NYU located in the
heart of Manhattan. Highly competitive salary and benefits are available
and will commensurate with experience. University-subsidized housing
within a walking distance from the NYU Medical School is available.
Interested applicants should provide their CV, a brief description of
research interests, and the names of three references via email to:
