A postdoctoral position is available for a USA-France collaborative project on the influence of alcohol on the central dopamine system. The project combines computational and experimental techniques. The post-doc will design and analyze biophysical computational models of the brain circuitry affected by alcohol. The position is available beginning January 2014 for up to three years. While the position is based in Paris France, time will be divided between two institutions: Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, and École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France. In Paris, he or she will work with Prof. Gutkin (Group of Neural Theory, ENS) and Prof. Mamelli (Institut du Fer a Moulin, INSERM). In Indianapolis, the post-doc will work with Prof. Kuznetsov (Mathematics Dept.) and Prof. Lapish (Psychology Dept.). Both locations provide an excellent environment for collaborative research in quantitative biosciences.

The position will be based officially in the Group for Neural Theory at the Laboratoire des Neuroscience Cognitives, Institute for the Study of Cognition, ENS, Paris. Group for Neural Theory at ENS offers an exciting research environment with active seminar series, workshops, and an exposure to a wide variety fo research techniques and topics. 

Qualifications:  Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Physics, or a related field, a background in Dynamical Systems, programming experience and working knowledge in Computational Neuroscience.


How to Apply:  Send your CV, list of publications, research statement, and contact information for three references to Prof. Boris Gutkin via e-mail: boris.gutkin at ens.fr.
