Hi All,

Several postdoctoral positions in theoretical/computational neuroscience are available in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics (PBio) at the University of Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus, located in Aurora Colorado. The successful candidate(s) will work under the supervision of Dr. Joel Zylberberg to understand how the brain functions so robustly, despite the high levels of variability in the activities of its component neurons. This work will involve the development of mathematical /computational models of neural computation and/or neural communication that can be tested using experimental data.

The PBio department has strengths in olfaction, audition, decision-making, motor control, cardiac pacemaking, and development, providing a rich scientific environment. Dr. Zylberberg also has on-going collaborations with retinal and hippocampal physiologists, providing additional opportunities for theory-experiment interaction.

Requirements: Applicants should have (or soon be completing) a Ph.D. in either neuroscience, or in a quantitative discipline like applied mathematics, physics, computer science, electrical engineering, etc. The ideal candidate is a highly motivated problem solver with strong programming skills, previous experience in theoretical / computational neuroscience, and a deep desire to understand the principles underlying the functioning of the nervous system. Excellent communication skills are a must.

Applicants should email Dr. Zylberberg (joel(dot)zylberberg(at)ucdenver.edu) with the following (please provide these in .pdf format):

1. C.V. including a list of publications, research experience, and education
2. A 1-2 page summary of previous research accomplishments
3. A 1-2 page description of future research goals and interests
4. Names and contact information for 2-3 people who can provide letters of reference

Applications will be reviewed as they arrive. For more information about the PBio department, please visit our website at medschool.ucdenver.edu/physiology.
