The Huang group at the University of Pittsburgh has a postdoc position
available immediately for computational modeling to understand how
recurrent connections with synaptic plasticity shape the time scales in the
auditory cortex. This position is part of a collaboration with Prof. Tobias
Teichert and Prof. Dean Salisbury from the Department of Psychiatry at the
University of Pittsburgh.  This project aims to use a combination of
modeling, electrophysiology and EEG recordings to investigate the circuit
mechanisms underlying auditory refractoriness, as well as auditory
dysfunction in Schizophrenia.

In general, our group is interested in how different task and stimulus
contexts change neuronal responses and the implications on neural coding.
Other ongoing projects in the group include circuit models of interneuron
subtypes and attentional modulation on information flow.

The position is funded for two years, with an initial one-year appointment,
and it can be possibly extended to three years.  The project is funded by a
Brain Initiative grant.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a related field, such as computational
neuroscience, mathematics, physics or engineering.  The University of
Pittsburgh is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and
encourages applications from under-represented groups.

Interested applicants should email a CV and a brief research statement to
Dr. Chengcheng Huang (huangc at pitt.edu).
