POSTDOCTORAL POSITION -- CODING AND DYNAMICS IN THE RETINA
A postdoctoral position is available jointly in the groups of Eric Shea-Brown and Fred Rieke at the University of Washington (Applied Mathematics and Physiology/Biophysics). The topic is correlated spiking in retinal coding and dynamics -- with a focus on the neural representation of motion. Our goal is to connect dynamic mechanistic models, based on intracellular recordings across retinal circuits, with information-theoretic measures of their impact.
All of this will take place in a lively research community at the interface of neuroscience theory and experiment (see compneuro.washington.edu).
A PhD is required in mathematics, neurobiology, applied mathematics, biology, statistics, physics, or a related area. The position provides a highly competitive annual salary and benefits, and Seattle an exceptionally beautiful and interesting place to live.
The start date is flexible.
Applicants are encouraged to email a statement of research interests, CV, and three letters of recommendation to sbr_pdoc at uw.edu.
We will start reviewing applications on Jan. 7, 2013.
This full-time position is temporary and renewable, carries the title of Acting Assistant Professor, and is for a total duration of three years. EO/AA.
