Applications are invited for post-doctoral research position in the 
laboratory of Dr. Maxim Bazhenov at the University of California, San 
Diego to study cellular and circuit level mechanisms behind large-scale 
brain electrical activity. This project involves close collaboration 
with experimental laboratories. The ultimate goal of the work is to 
develop detailed multi-scale models of how human MEG and EEG are 
generated, including channels, synapses, neurons, and networks. Specific 
focus of the project is on sleep rhythms.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the design of the 
anatomically realistic brain network models based on experimental data. 
These models will be used to understand network dynamics behind MEG and 
EEG rhythms. This project will be developed in close interaction with 
other projects in the lab focusing on understanding the role of sleep in 
memory and learning and deriving novel learning principles that can be 
applied in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Qualified 
applicants are expected to have experience in computational/theoretical 
neuroscience and neural modeling. Programming experience in C/C++/ 
PYTHON/MATLAB is required.

The University of California offers excellent benefits. Salary is based 
on research experience. Applicants should send a brief statement of 
research interests, a CV and the names of three references to Maxim 
Bazhenov at mbazhenov at ucsd.edu (I will be at Cosyne workshops on March 
3-5, and I would be glad to meet with interested candidates)
