Employer: Prof. Dr. Gustavo Deco, Foundation Barcelona Media / Technology Department, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.
Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral positions in the Theoretical and
Computational Neuroscience Group at the Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, Spain, commencing immediately.
The project: “Large scale interactions in brain networks and their breakdown in brain diseases” (European FP7)

The overall goal of this project is to understand how neuronal assemblies exchange information (functional neuronal communication), and how variability
in neuronal communication explains variability in behaviour, both in the healthy and injured brain. Neural communication involves temporal interactions, not only locally within an area but also on a larger-scale between brain areas. We focus on large-scale interactions that arise at two distinct but potentially related temporal scales: ‘slow’ (~0.1 Hz) fluctuations of the blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signal, as readily measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI); and ‘fast’ (1-150 Hz) neuronal oscillations, as can be measured at various spatial scales (e.g. multi-unit activity (MUA) and local field potentials (LFP) at fine spatial scale; magnetoencephalography (MEG) at intermediate scale; electroencephalography (EEG). In our group, we are responsible for the modeling part.
The candidates are expected to have a PhD in Neuroscience, Physics, or Mathematics. Specific requirements are:
* Have a PhD;
* Motivation to pursue a career in research;
* Excellent spoken and written English;
* Be eligible for and obtain a valid visa (where required) for postdoctoral residence;
* Have a good publication record in peer-reviewed international proceedings and journals.
Please send gustavo.deco at upf dot edu
1. CV; 2. Motivation letter describing research interests, prospective controbution to our projects and career vision; 3. Three letters of reference; 4. Full list of publications and copy of the three most representative ones. 5. Any other documents (publication, award, etc.) to support your application
Selected postdoctoral students receive an office, computer, access to all facilities and will be involved in the managment and development of the
challenging research projects.
Only applications containing items 1-5 will be considered. If you do not hear from us within 4 weeks of sending the documents, it means that your application was not retained. Documents won’t be returned (please do not send originals).
Applications can be sent immediately and will be processed in the order received until the positions are filled.
