Thu Oct 27 00:56:08 CEST 2011
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
