The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Complex Systems and the Department of Physics at Northeastern University, Boston, invite applicants for a postdoctoral position in Robust Intelligence / Theoretical Neuroscience to begin in the fall of 2015. The successful candidate will work on an AIR FORCE sponsored project to create a theoretical framework for the analysis of the effects of learning and robust memory storage on synaptic connectivity in local cortical networks.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience, physics, mathematics, or related quantitative disciplines. Track record of experience in computational neuroscience, as well as excellent theoretical and computational skills are required. Knowledge of machine learning, replica/cavity theory from statistical physics, cortical neuroanatomy and connectivity is preferred.

To apply, please send (1) a CV, including a list of publications, (2) a summary of prior research accomplishments, and (3) names and contact information of three reference providers by email to Prof. Armen Stepanyants, a.stepanyants at neu.edu<mailto:a.stepanyants at neu.edu>. The position is available immediately, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal on a yearly basis. Northeastern is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Title IX Employer.
