A postdoctoral position is available in the Mathematical Neuroscience Laboratory
at the University of Nebraska. The postdoctoral fellow will join an NSF-funded project for developing a mathematical theory relating structure to function in neuronal networks. The project involves both developing a novel mathematical theory of representation by neuronal networks as well  as data-driven investigations.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a Ph.D. in
Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, or a closely related area. A background
in algebra/geometry/topology is a plus. Prior experience in Neuroscience  
is not absolutely required, however the applicant is expected to be interested in    
learning a new field.

For further information feel free to contact prof. Vladimir Itskov at
vitskov2 at math.unl.edu. The position start date is flexible, as early as   
Jan. 2012. The initial appointment is for two years, and may be renewed   
for a third year. Initial consideration of applications will begin on  
November 15, 2011. The position is open until filled.

How to apply:
Applicants should submit a CV, a research statement and recommendation letters via
