BBP - Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Neuron and Synapse Modeling

A post-doctoral position in modeling of molecular synapses and neurons is
available at the Blue Brain Project at the Swiss Federal Institute of
Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland (www.epfl.ch). The Blue Brain
Project, based in Geneva, Switzerland, performs large-scale simulations of
the brain. The position entails development of methods and systems to
perform multi-scale modeling and integrate knowledge of signaling pathways
to create models of plasticity, transmission, and regulation. The ideal
candidate will have a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience or related field.
Experience in modeling of molecular plasticity, biochemical signaling
cascades, and reaction-diffusion modeling is desired. Strong biology and
mathematical background, as well as coding competence in Python, C++, and
NEURON are essential.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals to work as members of a
highly multidisciplinary group working at the interface of neuroscience,
physics and computer science with good writing, collaboration, and
communication skills. Selected candidates will join a prestigious project
that is pioneering simulation neuroscience research, composed of a young,
dynamic, interdisciplinary, and international team. We offer a
state-of-the-art working environment based at the Biotech Campus in Geneva
( http://www.campusbiotech.ch/en/ ) with access to cutting edge simulation,
informatics and computing facilities.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and a detailed CV in PDF
format only, with file name “Surname_position _Cover Letter” and
“Surname_positon _CV” electronically to jobs.bbp at epfl.ch Please use the
reference of the position title in the “object” field.
