Fri Oct 31 13:10:44 CET 2014
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 a biophysical computational models of the brain
circuitry affected by alcohol. The position is available immediately for
up to three years. The position is based at the Group for Neural Theory,
Ecole Normale Superieure Paris France, with extensive research visits
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) on circuit
level models. In Indianapolis, the post-doc will work with Prof.
Kuznetsov (Mathematics Dept.) and Prof. Lapish (Psychology Dept.) on
cellular level models. Both locations provide an excellent environment
for collaborative research in quantitative biosciences. Ample travel
support, competitive salary and full social coverage is offered.
Qualifications: Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computational
Neuroscience, Mathematics, Physics, or a quantitative 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.
