Postdoctoral Fellowships in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience
University of Pennsylvania


The Computational Neuroscience Initiative (CNI, http://cni.upenn.edu) of 
the University of Pennsylvania seeks exceptional candidates for two CNI 
Postdoctoral Fellowships. Candidates with strong quantitative skills 
from a variety of fields including neuroscience, cognitive science, 
psychology, physics, mathematics, and engineering will be considered. 
The selected Fellows will join an inter-disciplinary research 
environment in historic Philadelphia. CNI Fellows will be encouraged to 
foster collaborative research between multiple labs.

The CNI supports inter-disciplinary and collaborative research at the 
frontier of knowledge about the brain, behavior, and the mind. We focus 
on systems-level approaches that integrate theory and computation with 
experiment. Our members include faculty, post-docs, and students from 
multiple programs and departments including neurobiology, cognitive 
science, psychology, physics, mathematics, electrical engineering, and 
computer science. Our research and training spans the three major 
elements of the field of Computational Neuroscience: 1) Theory -- 
understanding the brain as an information-processing machine; 2) 
Experiments -- providing quantitative methods to aid in the design, 
implementation, analysis, and interpretation of empirical studies that 
probe all levels of brain function, from molecules to behavior; and 3) 
Applications -- including robotics, brain-machine interfaces, and new 
clinical tools.

Applications should be submitted by email to compneuro at sas.upenn.edu 
<mailto:compneuro at sas.upenn.edu> and should consist of a CV and a cover 
letter stating the candidate's research experience and reasons for 
applying to this Fellowship. Please arrange for up two three letters of 
recommendation to be sent to the same email address with the candidate's 
name in the subject line. Review of applications will begin on February 
30 and continue on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented 
individuals from diverse backgrounds (http://jobs.hr.upenn.edu
