*Postdoctoral position in the Drugowitsch Lab in computational neuroscience*

*Location*: Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA
*Start*: May 2016 or after

We are looking for a highly creative and motivated postdoctoral fellow to
work in the field of computational and systems neuroscience in the group of
Jan Drugowitsch - Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School (
http://neuro.hms.harvard.edu/people/faculty/jan-drugowitsch). The group
works on questions of decision-making and navigation under uncertainty,
ranging from the level of neural populations to that of behavior. The
candidate is expected to perform research related to these topics. Close
interaction and collaboration with other members of the department is

Candidates should have a strong analytical background (e.g., computational
neuroscience, physics, mathematics, engineering, etc.) and feature an
interest in the role of computation in neural populations and in
theoretical neuroscience in general. Experience or familiarity with related
machine-learning fields is also desirable. Previous experience should
include sufficient programming skills to run numerical simulations,
Bayesian methods, and expertise in the analysis of dynamical systems.

The position starts in or after May 2016, and is funded for several years,
with an initial one-year appointment and expectation of extension given
satisfactory performance. Salary depends on experience and is at levels
above the NIH scale.

Candidates should send a single pdf file, consisting of a 1-page motivation
letter, CV, and publication list to jan_drugowitsch at hms.harvard.edu.
Furthermore, candidates should organize two letters of reference, to be
sent to the same e-mail address. The position is open until filled.

Jan Drugowitsch will be available at the Cosyne conference and workshops
for question about the position.
