Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in
computational/theoretical neuroscience, in the lab of Odelia Schwartz at
the University of Miami.

Our lab employs tools of computational and theoretical neuroscience, to
study systems from the neural level through to perception and behavior. For
example, we develop models of sensory processing based on the hypothesis
that images, movies, and sounds have predictable and quantifiable
statistical regularities to which the brain is sensitive. The models are
constructed through interplay with physiological and psychophysical
data. Example projects include but are not limited to: (1) Modeling of how
neurons and percepts are affected by contextual information in time
dynamically; (2) Modeling of hierarchical cortical processing.

For more information about the lab and recent publications, see:

The candidate should have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, a strong
quantitative background, and an interest in neuroscience. Prior experience
would ideally include areas such as computational neuroscience, machine
learning, statistics and/or signal processing.

University of Miami offers a vibrant interdisciplinary environment, with a
growing emphasis on a brain sciences initiative. The position will be in
the Department of Computer Science, with opportunities to collaborate with
Psychology, Biology and the School of Medicine. The university is located
in beautiful Coral Gables, and surrounded by Miami. Initial appointment is
for one year with possible yearly renewal for a total period of three
years. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience.
