Blue Brain Porject (Campus Biotech, Geneva, Switzerland) is looking
for a *Post-doctoral
Researcher in Computational modelling of hippocampal circuits*.
Improve the existing large-scale models of rodent hippocampus. The current
network models are already the product of several iterations and their
emergent behavior can reproduce many features of the hippocampus. The work
on the models continues by expanding the region of interest from CA1 (the
first region we considered) to the full hippocampus, and eventually by
connecting the hippocampus to the rest of the brain. In parallel, the
models will include more or more details. For example, we are working on
including gap junctions, long-term plasticity, structural plasticity,
neuromodulation, glia, vasculature, and so on.
Exploit the models to answer outstanding questions in the field, such as
information processing in the hippocampus, spatial navigation, memory
processes, development of pathological conditions (Alzheimer’s disease,
epilepsy). The models are designed not to answer one specific question, but
for a general purpose. This ensures a larger validity of the models and
allows us to potentially test many different hypotheses and make likewise
