Applications are invited for NIH-funded post-doctoral position in the
laboratory of Dr. Maxim Bazhenov at the University of California,
Riverside to study olfactory coding. This project aims at understanding
how odors and odor concentrations are encoded in the insect olfactory
system. It involves close collaboration with laboratory of Dr. Mark
Stopfer at NIH. For relevant references see, Assisi et al., Neuron 2011,
69(2):373-86; Ito et al., Neuron 2009, 64(5):692-706; Assisi at al.,
Nature Neurosci, 2007, 10(9):1176-84. The ultimate goal of this work is
to understand mechanisms and functions of biological rhythms and the
role of neuronal oscillations and synchrony in information processing.
The successful candidate will be responsible for design and analysis of
the network models of olfactory system 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
