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
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
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".
