Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Computational Brain Modeling at IBM
IBM is seeking a post-doctoral researcher to participate in a joint
research collaboration between the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and the
Stockholm Brain Institute (SBI) in Sweden. This collaboration will involve
modeling multiple brain regions and their interactions to provide insights
into the emotional system and its effects on behavior and learning. The
post-doctoral researcher will analyze, propose, and develop neural systems
models at various levels of abstraction. The researcher will also test
these models and validate them against experimental data acquired by our
research collaborators and data in the literature. The researcher will
interface with modelers, experimentalists, and computer scientists.
Further, the researcher will develop software for models and neural system
simulation environments targeted for high performance computing platforms,
especially the Blue Gene/L supercomputer. Finally, the researcher will
publish research results. Time will be spent in both Yorktown Heights, NY
(IBM), and Stockholm, Sweden (SBI).
Required qualifications and skills
* PhD in neuroscience, engineering, computer science, physics or related
* Strong background in computational neuroscience and neural system
modeling, including experience with a broad range of neural modeling
techniques such as compartmental modeling, integrate-and-fire neurons,
Wilson-Cowan modeling, non-linear system dynamics, etc.
* Strong mathematical and statistical analysis skills.
* Strong computer science skills, including experience with C/C++
programming, Linux, distributed and parallel processing, MPI, and MatLab.*
* Strong communication skills. The ideal candidate will be fluent in both
Swedish and English.
