POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE IN THEORETICAL NEUROSCIENCE

with Albert Compte, Laboratory for Theoretical Neurobiology of Cortical
Circuits, IDIBAPS (Institute for Biomedical Research "August Pi i
Sunyer", Barcelona, Spain): http://complab.fcrb.es

In the laboratory, we focus our research on the exploration of the
mechanisms that operate in the cerebral cortex during perceptual and
cognitive processes, using computer and mathematical modelling. Projects
cover a range of topics in dynamics of neural networks, and involve
close interactions with collaborating experimental laboratories
(neurophysiology, neuropharmacology, neuroimaging). The IDIBAPS is the
largest biomedical research institute in Spain, and the presence of our
lab represents a unique opportunity to bring closer computational
approaches to clinical experimental problems. You can find a description
of our research and publications in our webpage http://complab.fcrb.es

We are currently seeking applicants for a project on the modeling of
cognitive function (attention, working memory,...) and dysfunction
(schizophrenia,...) with biophysically detailed multiple-area models.
The project will involve psychophysical experimentation and, depending
on candidate qualifications, fMRI experiments. The project involves
close interaction with neuroimaging, neurophysiology and
neuropharmacology labs.

Candidates should have good analytical mathematical skills (Physics or
similar) and simulation experience. Familiarity with neuroscience and
neurophysiology is also highly valued. Neuroscientists are also welcome
to apply if they have some experience in computer coding. The initial
appointment is for 20 months, during which further competitive funding
should be secured for further extensions. Salary is around 26.000 euros
annually.
