*Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Neuroscience*

The laboratories of Dr. Patrick Hof  (Department of Neuroscience, Mount
Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY) and Dr. Christina Weaver
(Department of Mathematics, Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA)
seek a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to develop computational models
of cortical neurons, and new methods to analyze these models.  The NIH
funded research explores interactions between morphological and
physiological changes in the aging primate cortex.  The postdoctoral fellow
will be based at Mount Sinai’s Department of Neuroscience and Computational
Neurobiology and Imaging Center (CNIC) with Dr. Hof, but will collaborate
closely with Dr. Weaver and with Dr. Jennifer Luebke (Boston University
School of Medicine, Boston, MA).  The candidate will also have the
opportunity to learn experimental techniques including confocal imaging and
in vitro electrophysiology.  Further information on the Computational
Neurobiology and Imaging Center can be found at http://www.mssm.edu/cnic .

Candidates should have, or be near finishing, a Ph.D. in math, physics or
computer science with a strong demonstrated interest in neuroscience, or a
Ph.D. in neuroscience with a strong computational background.  Experience
with computer programming is essential.  Experience with NEURON
compartmental modeling software and automated parameter optimization is
preferred.  Strong communication skills in English are required.  The
position is available immediately, for an initial two-year appointment
(renewable). Salary will be commensurate with experience, according to the
NIH NRSA pay scale.

Applications received by December 15, 2012 will receive full consideration.
Interested applicants should send their CV, a brief statement of current
and future research interests, and the contact information of three
references to christina.weaver at fandm.edu.
