*Postdoctoral Fellowships with the Computational Neuroscience Initiative 
**at the University of Pennsylvania*

The Computational Neuroscience Initiative (CNI) of the University of 
Pennsylvania seeks exceptional candidates for a CNI 
Postdoctoral Fellowship. Candidates with strong quantitative skills from 
a variety of fields including neuroscience, cognitive science, 
psychology, physics, mathematics, and engineering will be considered. 
The selected Fellow will join an inter-disciplinary research environment 
in historic  Philadelphia. CNI Fellows will be encouraged to foster 
collaborative research between multiple labs.

The CNI supports interdisciplinary and collaborative research at the 
frontier of knowledge about the brain, behavior, and the mind. We 
focus on systems-level approaches that integrate theory and computation 
with experiment. Our members include faculty, post-docs, and students 
from multiple programs and departments at Penn. Our research and 
training spans the three major elements of the field of Computational 
Neuroscience: 1) Theory – understanding the brain as an 
information-processing machine; 2) Experiments – providing quantitative 
methods to aid in the design,  implementation, analysis, and 
interpretation of empirical studies that probe all levels of brain 
function, from molecules to behavior; and 3)  Applications – including 
robotics, brain-machine interfaces, and new clinical tools. For more 
information about the CNI, please visit our website at 
https://cni.upenn.edu.

Applications may be submitted by email to compneuro at sas.upenn.edu, and 
should consist of a CV and a cover letter stating the 
candidate's research experience and reasons for applying to this 
Fellowship. Please arrange for up to three letters of recommendation to 
be sent to the same email address with the candidate's name in the 
subject line. Review of applications will begin on November 15 and 
continue on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented 
individuals from diverse backgrounds (http://jobs.hr.upenn.edu).
