The Neurosciences Institute ( is seeking postdoctoral researchers in computational neuroscience to join an exciting, ongoing project to understand the biological bases of brain function.

Successful candidates will be working with a multi-disciplinary team to create large scale spiking models of the mammalian nervous system incorporated into robotic devices. Neural systems addressed in this project include: sensory processing, neuromodulation, thalamocortical interaction, motor control, learning and memory, and cognitive aspects of decision making.
Candidates should have a background in neuroscience and strong programming skills. Previous modeling experience will be favorably considered.
The Neurosciences Institute is an independent, not-for-profit scientific research organization led by Nobel laureate Gerald M. Edelman. The Institute hosts thirty to forty scientists engaged in theoretical and experimental neurobiology. It is located within walking distance of other major centers of neuroscience, including The Scripps Research Institute, The Salk Institute, and the University of California San Diego.
Salary is dependent upon relevant experience; a full benefit package is available. Send C.V. and cover letter to: jobs-postdoc(at)nsi(dot)edu.
