IBM Research: Theoretical/Computational Neuroscience

Post by ted » Wed Jun 13, 2012 11:20 am

The IBM T.J. Watson Research Center (Yorktown Heights, NY) is seeking a researcher having strong interest and extensive experience in theoretical & computational neural science and brain modeling, for a Research Staff Member position. Familiarity with information theory and a strong background in statistical physics are also desirable.

IBM Watson Research has a long tradition and strong presence in computational sciences and excellent computing facilities such as the BlueGene Supercomputer Center. Our current interests and expertise in computational neuroscience include: biologically realistic neuronal and network modeling, with external experimental collaboration; fMRI analysis for understanding of brain function & disease states; analysis of biological networks using statistical physics methods; and biologically-inspired deep learning using Bayesian inference and information-theoretic approaches.

The successful candidate is expected to pursue independent research of world class quality in theoretical/computational neuroscience directed at understanding information processing in the brain, and to work with other IBM researchers to explore new brain-inspired computing paradigms and brain-computer interfaces.
