Postdoctoral Position Available in Computational Modeling of Hippocampal Place Cells

Krieger Mind/Brain Institute

Departments of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering

Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow interested in performing computational modeling of hippocampal networks and the generation of spatial representations of hippocampal place cells.  The project will employ theoretical analyses of attractor networks and their relation to place cell "remapping" phenomena, as well as spiking neuronal network models to compare with actual neurophysiological recording data.  We encourage applications from (1) candidates with backgrounds in quantitative neuroscience and (2) candidates with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, or related fields, who are highly motivated to pursue research in computational neuroscience.   Please send a CV, a statement of prior research accomplishments, and the names and e-mail addresses of 3 references to James Knierim (james.j.knierim at uth.tmc.edu) or Kechen Zhang  (kzhang4 at jhmi.edu).
