*Postdoctoral Position in Mathematical Neuroscience:  Rhythms in Central 
Pattern Generators*

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Department 
of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh, funded by the U.S. 
National Science Foundation.  The successful candidate will work with 
Professor Jonathan Rubin and other collaborators on the mathematical and 
computational analysis of issues relating to rhythm generation and 
feedback control in neuronal CPGs, such as networks underlying 
respiratory and locomotor rhythms, and will interact with other members 
of the Complex Biological Systems Group and Center for Neuroscience at 
the University of Pittsburgh.  The position is funded for two years, 
with an initial one-year appointment and an expectation of extension to 
two years, given that performance is satisfactory.  Applicants with a 
PhD in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Neuroscience, or 
a related discipline that includes training in dynamical systems should 
send a CV including a list of publications, a research statement, and 
reference contact information to *jonrubin at pitt.edu*.  The University of 
Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer, and 
women and members of minority groups under-represented in academia are 
especially encouraged to apply.
