Postdoc position in Computational Neuroscience in the Clopath lab.
-----------------------------------------------------
Computational Neuroscience Laboratory
Headed by Dr. Claudia Clopath
Department of Bioengineering
Imperial College London

-----------------Requirements:-----------------
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory, headed by Dr. Claudia Clopath, is looking for a talented Postdoc, interested in working in the field of computational neuroscience, specifically addressing questions of learning and memory. The perfect candidate has a strong mathematical, physical or engineering background (or equivalent), programing skills, and a keen interest in biological and neural systems. A PhD in the field of computational neuroscience is a plus.

-----------------Research topic:-----------------
Learning and memory are among the most fascinating topic of neuroscience, yet our understanding of it is only at the beginning. Learning is thought to change the connections between the neurons in the brain, a process called synaptic plasticity. Using mathematical and computational tools, it is possible to model synaptic plasticity across different time scales, which helps understand how different types of memory are formed. The Postdoc candidate will be working to build those models of synaptic plasticity, and study the functional role of synaptic plasticity in neural networks.

----------------- The lab:-----------------------
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory is very young and dynamic, and publishes in prestigious journals, such as Nature and Science. It is part of the Department of Bioengineering, which conducts state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research in biomechanics, neuroscience and neurotechnology. The lab is at Imperial College London, the 3rd ranked university in Europe, is in the top 10 worldwide, and is located in the city centre of London.
