Postdoctoral position in Coleman lab at UCSD and Grover lab at CMU in
theory and data analysis: modeling, monitoring, and modulating the enteric
A postdoc position at the intersection of theoretical and computational
neuroscience is available working jointly with the labs of Todd Coleman at
UC San Diego and Pulkit Grover at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh,
PA). The team's goal is to develop advanced theoretical techniques, closely
with validation in realistic computational models, for noninvasive
detection, tracking, and modulation of neural activity of the enteric
nervous system. The role of the postdoc will be to lead computational
modeling, simulations, and data analysis for these systems. The postdoc
will collaborate with information theorists, experimentalists, and
clinicians. The postdoc will be based in UCSD, and is expected to travel a
few times between UCSD and CMU to learn from the existing approaches and
coordinate efforts of the two teams.
This is an opportunity to work on a challenging and applicable scientific
problem in a highly interdisciplinary and vibrant environment.
Requirements: PhD in a related discipline (Engineering, Computer Science,
Neuroscience, or Biomedical Engineering) with a strong theoretical and
computational record. Background in basic cellular neurophysiology is
recommended but not mandatory.
The labs are committed to the professional development of the members,
making this position a valuable preparation for those interested in
academic, industrial or entrepreneurial careers. The position has no
mandatory teaching or administrative duties.
The ideal start date is Mar 2019, but early applications will also be
accepted. The position is initially for 12 months with the possibility of
renewal. Compensation will be competitive, and commensurate with relevant
experience. Candidates should send a CV, a statement of research experience
and interests, expected date of availability, and the contact information
for three references to tpcoleman at ucsd.edu and pulkit at cmu.edu with the
subject line “enteric-system postdoc”. Application review will proceed
until the position is filled.
