Postdoc position – studying the effect of cellular mechanisms on cortical circuit activity using computational modelling, at Hay lab (KCNI and UofT)
​
Hay lab is currently accepting applications from postdocs interested in using computational models to study the effect of cellular mechanisms on cortical circuit activity, in health and disease. We will simulate biophysical models of somatosensory cortical circuits, constrained with recordings from rodents and humans, to study the effect of synaptic connectivity and dendritic ion channels on cortical circuit activity. In turn, we will characterize the predicted signatures of the effects in measurable signals of cortical circuit activity, which will include the spatiotemporal propagation of neuronal spiking activity, LFP in different cortical layers, and EEG.
Applicants should have experience in simulating neuronal networks (conductance-based or integrate-and-fire), and using NEURON and Matlab.

Our lab is located at the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics (KCNI), which is part of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). We are affiliated with the University of Toronto, and are situated at the heart of the downtown campus. Neuroscience research at KCNI offers a unique environment that is both specialized and collaborative, spanning computational genomics, brain circuits, whole-brain networks, and behavior.

Interested applicants should send their CV to Dr. Etay Hay, at: etay.hay at camh.ca
