Applications are invited for an NIH-funded post-doctoral position to
study mechanisms and functions of sleep oscillations. The successful
candidate will join a research team involving the laboratories of Eric
Halgren (UCSD), Terry Sejnowski (UCSD) and Maxim Bazhenov (UC
Riverside). For relevant references see, Chen et al, Journal of
Physiology (London), 2012, Jul 9; Bonjean et al, Journal of
Neuroscience, 2012, 32(15):5250-63. The ultimate goal of this work is to
understand mechanisms and functions of sleep rhythms during stage 2
sleep and the role of sleep oscillations in memory and learning.
The successful candidate will be responsible for the design of a
thalamocortical model generating sleep rhythms based on existing
experimental data. These models will be used to understand underlying
neural mechanisms, as well as guide data analysis and produce novel
experimental predictions. Qualified applicants are expected to have
experience in computational/theoretical neuroscience and
conductance-based neural modeling. Programming experience with C/C++ is
required. Knowledge of PYTHON or MATLAB is a plus.
The University of California offers excellent benefits. Salary is based
on research experience. The initial appointment is for 1 year with a
possibility of extension. Applicants should send a brief statement of
research interests, a CV and the names of three references to Maxim
Bazhenov at maksim.bazhenov at ucr.edu
