Dear Colleagues,

We are seeking a postdoctoral candidate with excellent computational and
mathematical skills and an interest in neurophysiology to drive a joint
theoretical neuroscience-statistics-electrophysiology project in New York

The position will be central to a multi-disciplinary collaboration between
Asohan Amarasingham (City University of New York), Gyorgy Buzsaki (New York
University), and Matthew Harrison (Brown University) and will involve the
development and application of state-of-the-art statistical,
electrophysiological, and optogenetic tools, based on large-scale neuronal
population recordings, to the study of neuronal microcircuits in behavior.

Candidates are sought with a Ph.D. in Applied or Pure Mathematics,
Statistics, Physics, Computer Science, Computational Neuroscience, or
related fields. Ability to work in and lead a team, evidence of initiative,
excellent writing and computing skills, and enthusiasm about recent
innovations in neurophysiology are essential. The ideal candidate will also
have some familiarity experimental and/or theoretical neuroscience.
(However, depending on interest, this may be an opportunity for a skilled
theorist from another discipline to transition into neuroscience.)

The position is available for 1 year, and is renewable. We will offer a
competitive salary, commensurate with experience and skills. In addition to
resources at CUNY and NYU (and Brown), New York City offers tremendous
mathematical, neuroscientific, and cultural opportunities.

Please send CV, references, and a short description of past research and
future research goals to Asohan Amarasingham (aamarasingham at ccny.cuny.edu).
Because recruitment is already ongoing, we encourage interested candidates
to send a preliminary inquiry immediately.

Best regards,
