We are looking to fill a Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Associate position in Computational Neuroscience and Biomechanical Modeling at the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA. Our group studies the spinal locomotor circuitry and its interactions with the musculoskeletal system and afferent feedback. The qualified postdoc will work on several collaborative, interdisciplinary, NIH-funded projects to uncover the connectivity and function of somatosensory afferents and various genetically or anatomically identified interneurons. The studies involve the development of computer models of mouse, rat, and cat biomechanics connected with models of the spinal locomotor circuitry. The successful candidate will closely collaborate with other computational and experimental neuroscientists: they will use experimental data to implement and refine the model, and use the model to derive predictions that will then be tested experimentally by our collaborators.

The qualified candidate will benefit from joining a well-funded research group that works in a dynamic, collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. The highly collegial Danner lab is a member of the Neuroengineering Program, the Theoretical & Computational Neuroscience group, and the Spinal Cord Research Center within Drexel University College of Medicine’s Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy (http://drexel.edu/medicine/About/Departments/Neurobiology-Anatomy/) in Philadelphia, PA. The Department provides an outstanding scientific environment for multidisciplinary training. Interactions and collaborations between labs and between other departments are encouraged.
