[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral Position - Champalimaud Neuroscience Program in Lisbon - Population Recordings / Computational Neuroscience

Wed Nov 3 18:26:29 CET 2010

A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Alfonso Renart (
http://cnp.igc.gulbenkian.pt/research/renart/start) at the Champalimaud
Neuroscience Program in Lisbon, Portugal, to study the role of temporal
spiking correlations across neuronal populations during sensory perception
in awake behaving rodents.

The general interests in the lab are the elucidation of quantitative
principles of organization of local cortical circuits and their involvement
in cognitive abilities such as perception, working memory or the temporal
control of behavior. We are particularly interested in finding mechanistic
explanations of these phenomena in terms of the dynamics of local cortical
circuits. In order to do this we use a parallel experimental-theoretical
approach by combining electrophysiological recordings of the activity of
neuronal populations under controlled behavioral conditions together with
mathematical analysis of model neural circuits.

The Champalimaud Neuroscience Program (http://cnp.igc.gulbenkian.pt/start)
provides a vibrant research environment in systems neuroscience, a wide
range of state-of-the-art techniques in its established laboratories and
regular exposure to the latest ideas through its program for first-rank
international visiting faculty. It is located at the newly inaugurated
Center for the Unknown (
http://www.fchampalimaud.org/care-research/champlimaud-centre), at the heart
of historic Lisbon.

The position is available starting June 2011, with salary according to
experience. Please send a brief description of research experience and
interests, a curriculum vitae and contact information for three references
to: arenart73 at gmail.com. Applicants with experience in in vivo
electrophysiology are highly encouraged to apply.
