[Comp-neuro] postdoctoral position at Boston University on rule-based decisions

A 3-year postdoctoral position is available to work with Nancy Kopell on
computational models of rule-based decisions.  The models will be detailed
biophysical models, focusing on the pre-frontal area and striatum,
incorporating new data about rhythms in those areas; the work will be in
collaboration with various experimentalists.  We are looking for
candidates having some experience working with large-scale biophysical
models.

The successful candidate will have opportunities for interaction with a
large community of experimental and computational neuroscientists via the
Cognitive Rhythms Collaborative, a highly networked group of over two
dozen labs, mostly in the Boston area, interested in brain dynamics.  The
CRC contains members with expertise in areas that include probe design, in
vivo and in vitro physiology, data analysis, dynamical systems modeling,
mesoscale network modeling, cognitive diseases, anesthesia and
neurosurgery.

Candidates should email a short letter of research interest including
their skills and experience, CV and the names of three references to
Nancy Kopell (nk at bu.edu) as soon as possible.
