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.
