[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral position modeling gamma synchrony in Carmen Canavier's lab

Canavier, Carmen C. ccanav at lsuhsc.edu
Wed Jan 25 17:04:54 CET 2017


A Senior Postdoctoral Researcher position is available in the area of Computational Neuroscience in the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, LSU Health New Orleans in the lab of Dr. Carmen Canavier. The main project will take an existing model of interneuronal network gamma (ING) and embed it within a network of hippocampal pyramidal neurons in order to build a model of pyramidal-interneuronal gamma (PING). The project will include both theoretical and empirical analyses of the synchronization properties of these networks, and in particular the contribution of intrinsic neuronal properties as compared to synaptic properties. These analyses require knowledge of linear and nonlinear systems theory, probability theory and signal processing.  The project will require programming in python and the simulation package NEURON to run parallelized simulations on a Linux cluster. This position will include administering the lab’s computational cluster and mentoring both graduate and undergraduate students.


  *   Ph.D. in Engineering, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Physics, Computer Science or a related field of study
  *   At least three (3) years of experience in computational neuroscience

Preferred Qualifications

  *   Writing code, running the simulation package NEURON, using single neuron models
  *   Signal processing experience and familiarity with nonlinear dynamics

Applicant Instructions

Qualified applicants should submit curriculum vitae and three letters of reference using the following link
