The George Mason University, Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study invites
applications for a postdoctoral Research Assistant Professor position
available immediately to contribute to ongoing cutting-edge research in
computational neuroanatomy and neuroinformatics funded by the National
Institutes of Health (NIH): National Institute of Neurological Disorders and
Stroke, National Institute on Aging and National Institute on Drug Abuse.
The postdoctoral researcher will assume responsibility for one of the most
prominent projects of the lab, NeuroMorpho.Org/--a database of digital
reconstructions of neuronal morphology.
The successful candidate will expand the computational infrastructure and
functionality of this continuously growing resource, and will enable
exciting new opportunities in the analysis and modeling of neuronal
morphology, activity and connectivity. Additionally, the successful
applicant will join the Center for Neural Informatics, Structures and
Plasticity--an interdisciplinary, dynamic and creative research group at
George Mason University's Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study (located in
northern Virginia, 15 miles west of Washington D.C.) and will have generous
office space, new computers and a salary on the NIH postdoctoral scale
supplemented by state employee benefits.
The position requires basic understanding of the principles of database
design and function, development of online applications and of neuronal
structure, as well as the ability to interact effectively with graduate
students and lab technicians. Fluency in object-oriented programming (JAVA
or C/C++) is highly desirable, and familiarity with JSP, HTML, XML or MatLab
is a plus. All highly motivated candidates with a recent Ph.D. in
neuroscience, biology, computer science, physics, psychology or other areas
related to brain research and bioinformatics (including M.D. or engineering
degrees) are encouraged to apply.
