Postdoc position in Computational Neuroscience in the Clopath lab.

-----------------------------------------------------

Computational Neuroscience Laboratory
Headed by Dr. Claudia Clopath
Department of Bioengineering
Imperial College London

-----------------Requirements:-----------------
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory, headed by Dr. Claudia Clopath,
is looking for a talented Postdoc, interested in working in the field of
computational neuroscience, specifically addressing questions of learning
and memory. The perfect candidate has a strong mathematical, physical or
engineering background (or equivalent), and a keen interest in biological
and neural systems. A PhD in the field of computational neuroscience is a
plus. PostDoc funding is secured for at least 2 years.

-----------------Research topic:-----------------
Learning and memory are among the most fascinating topic of neuroscience,
yet our understanding of it is only at the beginning. Learning is thought
to change the connections between the neurons in the brain, a process
called synaptic plasticity. Using mathematical and computational tools, it
is possible to model synaptic plasticity across different time scales,
which helps understand how different types of memory are formed. The
PostDoc candidate will be working to build those models of synaptic
plasticity, and study the functional role of synaptic plasticity in
artificial neural networks.

----------------- The lab:-----------------------
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory is very young and dynamic, and
publishes in prestigious journals, such as Nature and Science. It is part
of the Department of Bioengineering, which conducts state-of-the-art
multidisciplinary research in biomechanics, neuroscience and
neurotechnology. The lab is at Imperial College London, the 3rd ranked
university in Europe, is in the top 10 worldwide, and is located in the
city centre of London.

----------------- How to apply:-----------------
Candidates should send a single pdf file, consisting of a 1-page motivation
letter and CV (including publication list) to clopathlab.imperial at gmail.com,
with the subject containing 'Postdoc2015'. In addition, candidates should
organize two letters of reference to be sent to
clopathlab.imperial at gmail.com. The position is open until filled but the
earlier applications will be considered first.
