Postdoctoral Position in Computational Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics:
Standards and Tools for Multiscale Model Specification and Exchange
A postdoctoral position is available in the computational laboratory
of Dr. Sharon Crook (http://math.asu.edu/~crook) at Arizona State
University in Tempe, Arizona (http://www.asu.edu). The position is
supported by the NIH-funded NeuroML Project (http://neuroml.org),
an international, collaborative effort to create a model description
language for computational neuroscience. In particular, the candidate
will participate in schema design and implementation, tool development
and testing, and website maintenance. The position also will require
involvement in computational studies that examine the role of
dendritic remodeling as part of learning and development or following
injury or genetic manipulations.
Prior extensive programming experience in the area of computational
neuroscience is required, and experience with XML, website development,
and multiple neural simulators would be beneficial. The candidate also
must be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills and the
ability to work as part of a team. Some international travel is required.
Locally, the postdoctoral researcher will interact with faculty,
students and other postdoctoral researchers in the Center for
Adaptive Neural Systems (http://ans.asu.edu) at ASU. ASU has
vibrant, interdisciplinary research communities in neuroscience,
biomedical informatics, and high-performance computing. Candidates
should send a curriculum vitae, a summary of research experience and
interests, and the contact information (name, address, phone number
and email) for three references to Dr. Sharon Crook at sharon.crook at asu.edu.
Applications will continue to be reviewed until the position is
filled. Arizona State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action Employer Institution.
