The following position is available.
Post-Doctoral position available at the Computational Neuroscience lab,
Centro Interdisciplinario de Neurociencia de Valparaíso. Dr. Patricio Orio
Research Topic: Mathematical modeling of the electrical activity of cold
sensitive nerve endings.
In order to understand the dynamics of thermosensation in physiological and
pathological conditions, we will fit and analyze conductance-based models
of cold receptors. We will employ parameter optimization algorithms and
tools for dynamical system analysis. This work will not only shed light
about the role of different ion conductances in cold thermoreceptors, but
also on how an oscillatory system can maintain its regular behaviour
despite dramatic changes of parameters induced by temperature.
Applicants must be interested in working in an interdisciplinary work
environment, as well as possess mathematical knowledge in dynamical
systems, neural excitability and/or analysis of oscillatory phenomena. Also
programming skills are desirable. Possible applicant’s profiles include:
- PhD in physics or applied mathematics with interest on biological
- PhD in neuroscience or related areas with advanced mathematical skills.
CONTACT Interested candidates should send CV and references to Dr. Rodolfo
