A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Carmen Canavier at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. This is an exciting opportunity to participate as a theoretician in a synergistic loop with John White's experimental group at Boston University on gamma oscillations in excitatory and inhibitory neural networks. The successful candidate must be creative and able to work as part of a team. Both network level and single cell modeling using NEURON will be utilized in concert with nonlinear dynamics and other analytical methods to develop and test neural signatures of different oscillatory mechanisms.  Quantitative training in Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or a related field is required, as well as some programming expertise. Some knowledge of neuroscience and familiarity with Linux is preferred. Please contact Dr. Canavier at ccanav at lsuhsc.edu if you are interested. The position is available immediately, but we are also interested in strong candidates who will graduate in the spring or summer.
