The IBM T.J. Watson Research Center (Yorktown Heights, NY) is seeking a 
researcher having strong interest and extensive experience in theoretical 
& computational neural science and brain modeling, for a Research Staff 
Member position. Familiarity with information theory and a strong 
background in statistical physics are also desirable. 

IBM Watson Research has a long tradition and strong presence in 
computational sciences and excellent computing facilities such as the 
BlueGene Supercomputer Center. Our current interests and expertise in 
computational neuroscience include: biologically realistic neuronal and 
network modeling, with external experimental collaboration; fMRI analysis 
for understanding of brain function & disease states; analysis of 
biological networks using statistical physics methods; and 
biologically-inspired deep learning using Bayesian inference and 
information-theoretic approaches. 

The successful candidate is expected to pursue independent research of 
world class quality in theoretical/computational neuroscience directed at 
understanding information processing in the brain, and to work with other 
IBM researchers to explore new brain-inspired computing paradigms and 
brain-computer interfaces.
