A Post-doctoral position is available with the Italian National Institute
for Nuclear Research (sezione Roma1).

The intended research topic is the theoretical understanding of
multi-scale dynamics of brain networks, based on tools and concepts from
the theory of disordered systems.
Of particular interest will be multi-modular heterogeneous networks of
neurons, the characterization of their state space and the associated
hierarchy of time scales of their dynamics.

The ideal applicant has been trained in physics or mathematics,  and has a
PhD in related disciplines.
He/she should have a background in one or more of the following subjects:
modeling of complex systems; theory and simulation of stochastic
processes; statistical mechanics of disordered systems; theoretical models
of neural networks.
A genuine interest in the theoretical understanding of brain dynamics is
expected.
Programming experience with MATLAB and C/C++ is also highly desirable.

The earliest possible starting date is October 2012. Gross salary is 28000
per year. Lunch tickets are provided for the whole duration of the
contract.
The position is for two years.

The research program will be carried out in Rome,  between the Physics
Department of the Rome University 'Sapienza' and the Italian National
Institute of Health (the two Institutes are at walking distance).

Foreign citizens and Italian citizens who spent abroad at least three  
years may apply.
Applicants must be younger than 35.
