Postdoctoral position: Modeling the dynamics of auditory perception.

Center for Neural Science, New York University



Funding is anticipated for a postdoctoral position to study the dynamics of
auditory perceptual phenomena related to perceptual grouping/streaming that
may also include bistability, pitch perception, or sound localization. The
focus will be on computational modeling from a neuromechanistic framework,
likely with firing-rate descriptions but not ruling out idealized
cell-based biophysical modeling. The postdoc will have opportunities for
doing psychophysical experiments (human subjects).  A candidate is expected
to have computational background (computing, simulating differential
equations, statistical analysis) and some prior exposure to neuroscience
and the auditory system. Ongoing research in the working group includes a
diversity of projects, primarily auditory, primarily computational from
cellular to system-level modeling, as well as some in vitro
electrophysiology; collaborations with other labs at NYU and elsewhere is
common. The Center for Neural Science at NYU is located in Greenwich
Village, and offers modern laboratory facilities, a stimulating research
environment, depth in computational neuroscience and close ties with the
Courant Institute. Send your CV, statement of research interests, and names
of three references to John Rinzel, Center for Neural Science, 4 Washington
Place, New York, NY 10003. Email: rinzeljm at gmail.com
