The University of Washington's Computational Neuroscience Center is seeking
postdoctoral applicants for fellowship positions with the UW Swartz Center
for Theoretical Neuroscience.

Generously supported by the Swartz Foundation
<http://www.theswartzfoundation.org/>, two prestigious Postdoctoral
Fellowships are available at the UW CNC. Fellows will join the vibrant,
collaborative UW theoretical neuroscience community. This fellowship
provides the unique opportunity to work with any of the CNC’s faculty
members <https://cneuro-web01.s.uw.edu/people/faculty/>, with the freedom
to design and develop projects and new collaborations. Participating
faculty members’ research includes theory, computation and data analysis,
and members interact extensively with colleagues in quantitative
experimentation. Experimental work available for close collaboration at UW
includes groups performing large-scale recording (electrophysiology,
imaging) and neural manipulation (optogenetics) in diverse behavioral
tasks. Collaborations with the Allen Institute for Brain Science are also

Successful candidates will have:

   - A PhD in neuroscience, computer science, mathematics, physics, or a
   related area
   - A strong analytical and/or computational background
   - Track record of productive research, including publications
   - The initiative to drive projects and collaborations
   - Strong written and verbal communication skills

The Fellowship is available with a starting date in early 2020.
Applications are currently being considered beginning October 15, 2019, and
will be reviewed on a rolling basis until positions are filled. To apply
please send your CV, a 1-2 page summary of research accomplishments, and a
1-2 page statement of research interests, to cncadmin at uw.edu; please
arrange to have 3 letters of reference sent to the same email address.
