A full-time postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available immediately at the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology and the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at the University of California, Riverside.

Research in our laboratory focuses on understanding cellular and network mechanisms underlying normal and paroxysmal oscillations in the brain and the role of neuronal oscillations and synchrony in information processing. Specific projects include: (1) Studying cellular and network mechanisms for normal (sleep, attentive states) and abnormal (epilepsy) oscillations in the thalamocortical system; (2) Studying role of oscillations and synchrony in olfactory coding — this project is targeted to discover the general principles and the neural circuitry involved in the encoding of sensory information in the brain.

Successful candidate will join research team including computational neuroscience labs from UC Riverside, UC San Diego and Salk Institute, and will be responsible for designing network models based on experimental data, model analysis and may be involved in experimental testing of the model predictions. Qualified applicants are expected to have experience in computational neuroscience including conductance-based neural modeling. Programming experience with C/C++ and Matlab is very desirable.
The UC Riverside campus is located in the heart of Riverside County within 1-hour drive from the cities of Los Angeles, San Diego and Irvine. The University of California offers excellent benefits. Salary is based on background and research experience. The initial appointment will be for 1 year with a possibility of extension up to 3-4 years.
Applicants should send a brief statement of research interests, a CV and the names of three references electronically to Maxim Bazhenov at bazhenov _at_ salk.edu or maksim.bazhenov _at_ ucr.edu
