Applications are invited for post-doctoral research positions in the 
laboratory of Dr. Maxim Bazhenov at the University of California, 
Riverside to study role of sleep in memory and learning. This 
computational neuroscience project involves close collaboration with 
several experimental laboratories. The ultimate goal of this work is to 
understand how the interaction among brain areas during different stages 
of sleep leads to consolidation of memory for recent learning.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the design of the 
anatomically realistic brain network models based on existing 
experimental data. These models will be used to understand network 
dynamics that are involved in the processes of memory consolidation, as 
well as guide data analysis and produce novel experimental predictions. 
Qualified applicants are expected to have experience in 
computational/theoretical neuroscience and neural modeling. Programming 
experience with C/C++ is required. Knowledge of PYTHON or MATLAB is a plus.

The University of California offers excellent benefits. Salary is based 
on research experience. The initial appointment is for 1 year with a 
possibility of extension. Applicants should send a brief statement of 
research interests, a CV and the names of three references to Maxim 
Bazhenov at maksim.bazhenov at ucr.edu
