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.
