Please feel free to e-mail me with informal inquiries. The position description is included below.


Postdoctoral position in Computational Neuroscience, Engel Lab, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, NY

Position description:
The Engel lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invites applications from highly motivated candidates for a postdoctoral position working on the cutting-edge research in computational neuroscience. We are looking for theoretical/computational scientists to work at the exciting interface of systems neuroscience, machine learning, and statistical physics, in close collaboration with experimentalists. The postdoctoral scientist is expected to exhibit resourcefulness and independence, developing computational models of large-scale neural activity recordings with the goal to elucidate neural circuit mechanisms underlying cognitive functions.

The candidates should e-mail their application to Tatiana Engel (engel at cshl.edu<mailto:engel at cshl.edu> ) as a single pdf file with subject: Postdoc Application. The application file should include: (1) CV with the publication list, (2) a brief description of research interests, (3) contact information for three references.

Position requirements:
- PhD in physics, mathematics, neuroscience, computer science, engineering or related quantitative discipline
- Expertise in scientific programming, e.g., C/C++, Python, Matlab
- Track record of publications in scientific journals
- Effective communication skills, both written and oral
- Dedication and passion for solving hard scientific problems
