The Neurosciences Institute (http://www.nsi.edu) is seeking  
postdoctoral researchers in computational neuroscience.  The  
successful candidate will be working with a team of researchers to  
create large scale spiking models of the mammalian nervous system  
controlling a robotic device.

Candidates should have a background in neuroscience, previous modeling  
experience, and strong programming skills. Experience in any of the  
following is highly desirable: spiking neural models, neuroanatomy,  
neural plasticity, parallel computing, and robotics. A wide variety of  
research areas will be of interest, including but not limited to:   
sensory processing, neuromodulatory systems, corticothalamic  
interaction, decision making and reward, brainstem and spinal cord  
function, and motor control.

The Neurosciences Institute is an independent, not-for-profit  
scientific research organization dedicated to furthering our knowledge  
of the biological bases of brain function. The Director of the  
Institute is Dr. Gerald M. Edelman, who received the Nobel Prize for  
Physiology or Medicine in 1972 for his studies on the structure and  
diversity of antibodies. The Institute hosts thirty to forty  
scientists engaged in theoretical and experimental neurobiology. It is  
located within walking distance of other major centers of  
neuroscience, including The Scripps Research Institute, The Salk  
Institute, and the University of California San Diego.

Salary is dependent upon relevant experience; a full benefit package  
is available. Send C.V. and cover letter to The Neurosciences  
Institute, 10640 John Jay Hopkins Drive, San Diego, California 92121  
or e-mail them to jobs5 at nsi.edu.
