Postdoctoral opening in computational neuroscience/mathematical biology

The Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Mathematical Biosciences at Indiana University-Purdue University
Indianapolis (IUPUI) invite applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of mathematical biology and computational
neuroscience.  The position is with a collaborative group of scholars from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at IUPUI and the
Department of Neurosurgery of the Indiana University School of Medicine. The current research project is aimed at understanding the
properties, origin and function of basal ganglia rhythmic activity, oscillations and synchronization at health and in Parkinson's
disease. The postdoctoral fellow will perform data analysis and dynamical systems modeling and will have the opportunity to
contribute to other aspects of the project. The position offers excellent interdisciplinary training possibilities in mathematical
biology and computational neuroscience.

Qualifications: Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in mathematics, physics, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computer
science or other related field. Applicants should have strong quantitative skills in data analysis and modeling and a strong
interest in neuroscience applications. Experience in applied dynamical systems/nonlinear time-series analysis/neuroscience is a

How to apply: Send your CV with a list of publications, research statement, and arrange two-three recommendation letters to be sent
to Dr. Leonid Rubchinsky via e-mail: leo at math.iupui.edu. Address all your inquiries to the same e-mail. Alternatively send your
application by regular mail to: Dr. Leonid Rubchinsky, Department of Mathematical Sciences, IUPUI, 402 N. Blackford Street, LD 270,
