Postdoctoral/research associate position in computational neuroscience
A postdoctoral/research associate position is available in the Lab
for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience at the Department
of Neurobiology and Anatomy, Drexel University College of Medicine.
Current projects in the lab supported by NIH include (1) computational
modeling of brainstem respiratory network and neural control of breathing
and (2) computational modeling of the spinal circuitry involved in the
locomotor rhythm generation and neural control of locomotion.
Requirements for the position include a PhD, experience in modeling
of single neurons (in the Hodgkin-Huxley style) and small and/or high-scale
biological neural networks, and strong C++ programming skills.
Experience in the analysis of nonlinear systems is an advantage.
The successful candidate will be involved in ongoing collaborations
with several research groups in the USA and other countries performing
complementary experimental studies.
The position is available for at least 2 years. Interested
should respond (preferably by email) with a CV and names of at least 3
references to Dr. Ilya A. Rybak, Department of Neurobiology and
Anatomy, Drexel University College of Medicine, 2900 Queen Lane,
