FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on Computational Neuroscience is available for a highly motivated candidate at New York University School of Medicine. We are a recently established lab dedicated to studying (1) the mechanisms of synaptic transmission at individual synapses and (2) the role of rapid synaptic plasticity in information processing by individual synapses and functional neural circuits. The lab utilizes cutting-edge imaging and electrophysiological tools in combination with image analysis and computational techniques to approach these questions.

More information can be found on the lab web site:
Successful candidates will be in charge of the computational aspects of these projects and will be able to combine them with experimental approaches if desired. Qualified applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in math, physics, engineering or life sciences, have extensive experience in computational/statistical methods or image analysis techniques. In depth knowledge of Matlab is essential.
Trainees will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research environment in a brand new Smilow Research Center at NYU located in the heart of Manhattan. Highly competitive salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with experience. University-subsidized housing within a walking distance from the NYU Medical School is available. Interested applicants should provide their CV, a brief description of research interests, and the names of three references via email to:
Vitaly Klyachko, Ph.D.
Smilow Neuroscience Program,
Department of Physiology and Neuroscience,
