Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in computational 
and experimental neuroscience in the lab of Prof. Upinder Bhalla at the 
National Centre for Biological Sciences.
Our lab works on computational and experimental studies of synaptic 
plasticity and network memory, with special attention to multiscale 
effects that span network, electrical and chemical signaling. Our lab 
also develops the MOOSE simulator, which has strong and expanding 
multiscale
capabilities.

Project 1: The development of multiscale models of neuronal and synaptic 
plasticity, in which molecular, electrical, and network effects 
interact.  The candidate should have experience in neuronal and/or 
signaling models. Modeling will use the MOOSE simulator 
(http://moose.ncbs.res.in).

Project 2: Experimental and computational study of network connectivity 
in the hippocampus using optogenetics, optical and electrical recording. 
The candidate should have done electrophysiology, preferably also some  
optics and/or optical recording.

The National Centre for Biological Sciences is a lively young 
institution in Bangalore in the south of India. Bangalore is blessed 
with temperate weather, lots of scientific and technical institutions, and
confusing traffic. NCBS has strong groups in systems neuroscience and 
theory, and has excellent scientific, living, day-care, and sports 
facilities. For further details see http://www.ncbs.res.in.

Applicants should apply to Dr. Bhalla, and should look at the details of 
the NCBS Fellows program and extramural fellowships:

NCBS is an equal opportunity employer.
