FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on advanced image analysis
techniques, single particle tracking and/or neural plasticity modeling is
available for a highly motivated candidate at Washington University School
of Medicine. Our lab is dedicated to studying the mechanisms of synaptic
transmission at individual synapses and the role of synaptic plasticity in
information processing. Several current projects have translational
emphasis on dysfunction in information processing in neurological
disorders such as mental retardation and Alzheimer’s. The lab utilizes
cutting-edge imaging and electrophysiological tools in combination with
image analysis and computational techniques to approach these questions.
More information can be found on the lab web page:


Successful candidates will be in charge of the computational aspects of
these projects and will be able to combine them with experimental
approaches if desired. Qualified applicants are expected to hold a
doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in physics, engineering or life sciences, have
extensive experience in image/data analysis techniques and
computational/statistical methods. In depth knowledge of Matlab is essential.

Trainee will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research
environment at Washington University, which has been consistently ranked
among the top five Medical Schools in the country. Highly competitive
salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with experience.
