Postdoctoral position in Computational Neuroscience

A postdoctoral position supported by the BRAIN initiative is available
at The Rockefeller University under the guidance of George Reeke in
collaboration with Charles Gilbert and Winrich Freiwald.  The overall
project will study cortical mechanisms of object recognition and more
specifically the influence of top-down task-and attentional influences
on cortical dynamics and perceptual learning in areas of the visual
cortical pathway.  The computational work will involve developing and
running large-scale spiking models of cortical regions studied in the
overall project, with the goal of developing an accurate theoretical
understanding of the phenomena observed in the experimental research.

The successful candidate should, ideally, have a Ph.D. in a relevant
area of neuroscience with a strong knowledge of mammalian visual
systems and neuronal systems modeling.  The candidate will be expected
to develop suitable software to supplement the available tools as
needed and will be able to work both independently and as part of a
team.  Interested individuals should send a c.v. and the names of
three references to Dr. George Reeke (reeke at rockefeller.edu) with a
subject line "Computational Neuroscience postdoc position".  The
position is available immediately, and applications will be accepted
until the position is filled.
