Postdoctoral position is available starting July 1st, 2008 at the 
Institute for Integrative Genome Biology (http://www.genomics.ucr.edu/) 
and the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at the University of 
California, Riverside (Bazhenov laboratory).

The long-range goal of our research program is to understand cellular 
and network mechanisms underlying normal and paroxysmal oscillations in 
the brain and the role of neuronal oscillations and synchrony in 
information processing. The position available involves working with a 
team of researchers to understand intrinsic and circuit mechanisms 
underlying slow wave sleep oscillations in the thalamocortical system. 
It includes developing detailed conductance-based and large-scale 
reduced network models of thalamic and cortical circuits based on 
anatomical and physiological data available from our collaborators; 
simulating the behavior of anatomically realistic thalamocortical 
networks in different sleep states and to study the role of sleep 
oscillations in consolidation of memory traces acquired during 
wakefulness. More information about our research is available at 

This position requires experience in computational neuroscience and/or 
computer modeling. Background in electrophysiology and programming 
experience with C/C++ and Matlab are very desirable.

Applicants should send a brief statement of research interests, a CV and 
the names of three references to Maxim Bazhenov at bazhenov at salk.edu
