We are seeking computational neuroscientists to join an interdisciplinary research program focused on understanding neural computation at the circuit level.  Preference will be given to candidates using computational approaches, broadly defined, to understand visual cortex and perception, but we welcome applicants from all areas of computational neuroscience.  Example research topics of interest include computational models of visual cortex, neural circuitry underlying perception, and the neural basis of decision-making.

Candidates should have a strong background in neuroscience, and an understanding of relations between neuroscience, cognitive science, and computation. Experience or familiarity with related machine-learning fields is also desired. Our department is part of a highly interdisciplinary community of researchers with interests spanning systems neuroscience and brain-inspired computing, engineering, and computer science.  Successful applicants will be expected to conduct high-quality research, maintain a successful publication record in peer-reviewed journals, and develop collaborations with this vibrant and growing community.  Staff members at Sandia are expected both to contribute to ongoing projects and to develop new lines of research with potential for application in solving complex problems. This position is located at Sandia's Albuquerque, NM, USA site.

Multiple positions for varying levels of experience are available.  For more information and to apply, visit http://www.sandia.gov/careers/ and click "View All Jobs".
