A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is
available at Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine, in the 
laboratories of Steven Cox
(Rice University) and Fabrizio Gabbiani (Baylor College of Medicine).

Our research focuses on understanding the biophysical mechanisms underlying
the implementation of non-linear operations by neurons and
neuronal circuits. The postdoctoral fellow will model the cellular and 
network mechanisms
underlying collision avoidance behaviors using advanced mathematical 
techniques and computer simulations.
Modeling will be supported by a large data set
of experimental data gathered using electrophysiology,
pharmacology, calcium imaging, high-speed video imaging and telemetry.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background
in computational modeling of single neurons and neuronal circuits.
Experience with Matlab and NEURON is required. The position is available 
for one year, with possibility of
renewal for a second year, contingent of performance and funding 
Salary will be commensurate with level of experience, based on an NIH
scale. Applications will be accepted until May 15, 2015.

Our labs are located at Rice University and in the adjacent Texas 
Medical Center, close to many
of Houston's cultural and outdoor amenities. For further information

For further informal inquiries and to apply, please send CV, the names 
and full
contact information of two to three references, as well as one to two
representative publications to cox at rice.edu and gabbiani at bcm.edu.
