  Announcing a postdoc position at University of Pittsburgh

Postdoctoral position available immediately for computational 
neuroscience. Topics of interest include but are not restricted to 
modeling spontaneous activity, waves, and synchronous oscillations in 
neuronal models and phase reseting curves in noisy and complex milieus.

Applicants should have a good knowledge of basic concepts in nonlinear 
dynamics and a strong interest in applying this to neurobiological 
problems. Knowledge of neurosceince is useful but not necessary. The 
ability to write simulation code (either in MatLab, XPP, or C/C++) is also 
useful.

This position is NSF funded for two years, and a competitive salary 
is available for qualified candidates.

Pittsburgh is a medium-sized city with a relatively low cost of living and 
many of the amenities and cultural opportunities of a larger city.
The Neuroscience community in Pittsburgh is large and very 
diverse with more than 100 faculty members affiliated with the Center for 
Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh ( CNUP ). Successful 
candidates would also have the opportunity to join the Center for the 
Neural Basis of Cognition ( CNBC ) which is a joint University of 
Pittsburgh/CMU center that involves 70 Faculty from the two Universities.

Interested candidates should send (preferably via e-mail) their c.v. and 
the names and addresses of three references to Professor Bard Ermentrout, 
Department of Mathematics, University of Pittsburgh Pittsburgh, PA 15260
