Postdoctoral Position in Computational Neuroscience through the Boston area Cognitive Rhythms Collaborative (CRC)

A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available through the NSF sponsored Boston area Cognitive Rhythms Collaborative (CRC) to study the origin and function of neural rhythms. Please see for a description of the CRC and its members. This position will be based in the Department of Neuroscience at Brown University and the leaders of the project with be Drs. Stephanie Jones and Christopher Moore, though other members of the CRC may also participate. We seek to train a postdoctoral researcher in biophysically principled computational neuroscience methods. Fundamental to the research will be the development of modeling tools to transcend our understanding of rhythms across electrophysiological scales – e.g. single units, LFP, EEG/MEG. The trainee will work side by side with experimentalists to receive interdisciplinary systems level neuroscience training in the integration of theory and experimentation. Model development and analysis will be under the mentorship of Dr. Jones and integration with experimental data under the direction of Dr. Moore. The trainee will work amongst the broader community of researchers integrating theoretical and experimental techniques to study neural rhythms as part of the CRC. Qualified candidates should have a strong mathematics/physics background, preferentially with experience in electromagnetism and dynamical systems methods for simulating neural circuits. The deadline for completed applications is November 30th. Interested candidates should email a CV, statement of research interests, three letters of recommendation, and if applicable, relevant publications to Applications should be organized into a single .pdf and include a listing of who will be sending letters of recommendation. Please specify in email that the application is for the CRC post-doctoral position.
