We are seeking a research associate to spear-head a collaborative  
industry-public project on computational modeling of dopaminergic  
circuitry and modulation of dopamine signaling by nicotinic  
acetylcholine receptors.

The project will build on a developed modeling approach in order to  
validate models shaping the effects of  nicotine and other  
prototypical nicotinic ligands on dopamine signaling, and to use  
combined pharmacodynamic/neural-circuit models in order to develop in  
computo assays of potential therapeutic compounds (e.g. for nicotine  
replacement, Parkinsons’, etc). The project is based at the Group for  
Neural Theory, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France  
(www.gnt.ens.fr) and involves interacting with the industrial partner  
in USA as well as with experimental collaborators at Wake Forest  
University.

Candidate should have an advanced degree in neuroscience,  
neuropharmacology and experience with computational modeling or a  
quantitative discipline and willing to learn the biology involved.
The position is available immediately with a 1 year contract in the  
first instance.
Competitive compensation package, commensurate with experience as well  
as full social and health coverage is available.

For further information please contact: Boris Gutkin bors.gutkin at ens.fr
Candidates should send a CV, a letter of motivation and arrange for  
two reference letters.
