Brandeis University invited applications for a postdoctoral fellowship 
in theoretical/computational neuroscience.

The successful applicant will be expected to work on a project related 
to the current research interests of faculty associated with the 
Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Brandeis
(see http://www.bio.brandeis.edu/sloan/ and 
http://www.bio.brandeis.edu/faculty/list_programNeuro.html).

Example research areas include:
Decision making; Short-term memory; Robustness and stability of small 
circuits; Cellular mechanisms of homeostasis; Attractor-state computing; 
Plasticity and development of cortical circuits.

Candidates should have a Ph. D. in one of the Physical Sciences or 
Neuroscience, a demonstrated ability in scientific computation, a solid 
foundation in calculus and differential equations, and a strong interest 
in neuroscience. Prior training and experience in neuroscience is 
desirable, though we accept those candidates new to the field who are 
willing to commit to the intense and extensive training available here.

Brandeis has a small, but strong neuroscience program (4 National 
Academy members) with significant expertise in systems neuroscience.

Brandeis is located in Eastern Massachusetts, about 8 miles from 
Boston/Cambridge.

All interested candidates should send a C.V., with the name and contact 
details of three or more references, and a paragraph indicating their 
career plans and research interests, by email to: pmiller at brandeis.edu. 
Please include in the subject line the phrase "Postdoc Application".
