There is an opening for a 3-year postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience (cellular/molecular modeling) in Norway/San Diego.

The research area is cellular and molecular modeling, and in the project new genetic discoveries from large GWAS-studies (genome-wide association studies) of brain diseases will be investigated using neural modeling.  In particular, biophysical neuron models will be used to study the effect of identified genes affecting neuronal transmission and excitability by manipulating individual receptors/channels/intracellular signaling system, and investigating how they interact. The positions are funded for three years, including some periods working at UC San Diego.

The postdoc will work in a project funded by the Research Council of Norway - FriMedBio program. The fellow will together with two other already hired postdocs be key scientific personnel in the project. We can offer an exciting research environment with a multidisciplinary profile and large opportunities for academic development. The postdocs will work at the KG Jebsen Centre for Psychosis research (TOP Study Group), and in close collaboration with the Computational Neuroscience Group at the Norwegian University of Life Science at Ås (compneuro.umb.no) and the Multimodal Imaging Laboratory at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) (mmil.ucsd.edu). 

Application deadline: September 15th, 2013
