Dear colleagues,

The recently established computational neuroscience and non-linear dynamics research group at the Toronto Western Research Institute, headed by Jérémie Lefebvre, has an opening for a postdoctoral fellowship, focusing on the behavior of driven cortical networks, neural oscillations and the dynamics of neurological disorders. More information about the lab can be found here<https://sites.google.com/site/lefebvresynclab/> and here<http://www.uhnres.utoronto.ca/researchers/profile.php?lookup=63509>.

Applicants must possess, or be close to submitting, a PhD in Physics/Applied Mathematics/Engineering/Neuroscience with an academic record of scientific excellence, research expertise and demonstrating strong interest in computational neuroscience and mathematical biology. Strong skills in computer programming (C, Matlab, Python,etc), modeling and data analysis are expected.  Knowledge in neuroscience, imaging, signal processing and and/or dynamical systems would be also be seen as assets.  The initial appointment is for 12 months, renewable for another year, and potentially longer depending on funding. Salary is competitive, and the start date is negotiable.

The lab is set in the Krembil Discovery Tower, a state-of-the-art research and clinical center built in 2013, and located next to the Toronto Western Hospital and affiliated to the University Health Network, a hub of clinical and research facilities located in the heart of Toronto, Canada. The UHN is Canada's largest research hospital and has a proud history of innovative research and important discoveries. As such, successful candidates will be immersed in a highly interdisciplinary environment that stimulates the synergy between computational, experimental and clinical approaches.  Close collaboration with the University of Toronto (notably via the Department of Mathematics) further enhances the range of research/collaboration prospects.
