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
