Rhythms in Central Pattern Generators
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation.

The successful candidate will work with Professor Jonathan Rubin and other collaborators on the mathematical and computational analysis of issues relating to rhythm generation and feedback control in neuronal CPGs, such as networks underlying respiratory and locomotor rhythms, and will interact with other members of the Complex Biological Systems Group and Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh.
The position is funded for two years, with an initial one-year appointment and an expectation of extension to two years, given that performance is satisfactory. Applicants with a PhD in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Neuroscience, or a related discipline that includes training in dynamical systems should send a CV including a list of publications, a research statement, and reference contact information to jonrubin(at)pitt(dot)edu .
The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer, and women and members of minority groups under-represented in academia are especially encouraged to apply.
