The Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience ( http://ccbn.uleth.ca/ 
) has established a new program in Systems and Computational 
Neuroscience approaches to studying Brain Dynamics, under the 
sponsorship of a $20M  Polaris Award from The Alberta Heritage 
Foundation for Medical Research. The faculty members of this program 
include Bruce McNaughton, David Euston, Artur Luczak, Masami Tatsuno and 
Aaron Gruber.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) information coding 
and self-organization of neural systems, memory consolidation, decision 
making and reward systems, neural network modeling, neural activity 
imaging, brain dynamics and information processing in sleep and waking, 
brain - machine interface, psychiatric illness, and aging of the brain 
and other conditions that affect learning and memory systems (for sample 
research see: Takehara-Nishiuchi K, McNaughton BL. Science. 2008; Euston 
DR, Tatsuno M, McNaughton BL. Science. 2007; Guzowski et al. Nature 
Neuroscience 2, 1120-1124; Gruber AJ et al. J Comput Neurosci. 2006; 
Luczak A et al. Neuron 2009).

Candidates should email a letter of interest describing their research 
career goals, skills and experience, their C.V., and the names of three 
references (please do not have reference letters sent unless requested) 
to bruce.mcnaughton at uleth.ca . Applicants should put "CCBN Polaris 
recruitment" in the header of their email. Salary scales will be 
competitive with NIH standards for postdoctoral and graduate trainees. 
Lethbridge Alberta is located two hours from Calgary (see 
http://www.hbi.ucalgary.ca/ ) and 90 minutes from the Canadian Rockies ( 
http://www.watertonpark.com/ ; 
http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ab/banff/index_e.asp ) and is a safe, family 
friendly environment
