Two postdoctoral/research associate positions in computational neuroscience 
at Drexel University College of Medicine



Two postdoctoral/research associate positions in computational neuroscience 
for the duration of up to three years are available at Drexel University College of Medicine 
(Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience Lab of Dr. Ilya A. Rybak) to participate 
in externally funded projects.



One position is for computational modeling of neural control mechanisms, involving 
interactions between basal ganglia, thalamus, cerebellum, cortex and spinal cord 
in connection with simulation of pathological changes in motor control during 
Huntington’s disease. 



The other position involves modeling of spinal cord circuits, including the circuits of 
locomotor CPG, in close interactive collaboration with several world leading laboratories 
performing experimental studies in the isolated rodent spinal cord.



Applicants must have a PhD degree in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, 
Neuroscience, or related discipline and have excellent C++ programming skills. 
Previous experience in computational modeling of biological neurons and neural 
networks is a plus.



Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Rybak (rybak at drexel.edu) by email. 
To apply, please send an email along with (1) curriculum vitae; (2) a cover letter 
describing previous research experience and interests; (3) the names and contact 

information of three references.
