			Postdoctoral Positions in Theoretical Neuroscience at the Hebrew  
University

We seek candidates for postdoctoral research in theoretical  
neuroscience at the Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computation  
(ICNC), the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Candidates must  
have advanced training in quantitative sciences (e.g., computational  
neuroscience, physics, applied math., computer science, and  
engineering) with preference to those with research experience in  
computational neuroscience. The postdoctoral fellows will work at the  
groups of Haim Sompolinsky http://neurophysics.huji.ac.il and/or Idan  
Segev http://lobster.ls.huji.ac.il/idan, with possible collaborations  
with experimental groups. Research fellows are expected to work on  
issues concerning the dynamics and function of neuronal circuits,  
including: structure and dynamics of cortical columns, inhibitory- 
excitatory balance in cortical microcircuits, synaptic plasticity and  
learning, and spike-based neural codes. Fellows will receive full  
stipends, travel funds and assistance in housing. Starting date is  
flexible.

Interested researchers are invited to send their CV as well as a short  
research statement

By email to: haim at fiz.huji.ac.il or idan at lobster.ls.huji.ac.il , and  
they should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent  
directly to the above addresses.

The ICNC is a vibrant center of training and research in computational  
and system neuroscience. It consists of  theoretical and experimental  
groups working on a broad range of topics including in vitro an in  
vivo studies of cerebral and cerebellar cortex, primate motor systems,  
sensory processing in rodents, cognitive neuroscience, and theoretical  
neuroscience. For more information please see http://icnc.huji.ac.il.  
Postdoctoral fellows will benefit from the interactive environment at  
ICNC, its advanced computing facilities, weekly seminars, annual  
retreats, international workshops, and advanced courses.
