Announcing a fellowship funding opportunity through a collaborative US-French NIDA/INSERM agreement. A recent call for proposals will allow a US postdoctoral fellow, once funded, to come and work in Franc. The Group for Neural Theory at the Institute for the Study of Cognition, Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, France has been chosen as a potential host and will sponsor an application from a qualified candidate.
The fellow will work in the group of Boris Gutkin, which focuses on computational modelling of addictive processes. Potential project include circuit level models of drug action in the dopaminergic brain system (nicotine, alcohol and interactions), system levels models for drug affects on the interaction between the pre-frontal cortex and the basal ganglia, computational modeling of cognitive control and drug induced pathologies, computational models of drug induced homeostatic pathology and its cognitive consequences. Eventual project will be need to be developed together with the fellowship candidate at the time of application.
The potential fellowships are one year renewable once.
ATTENTION: Deadline Oct 15 2013.
Potential applications, holding either a US passport of US permanent residence are invited to contact Boris Gutkin as soon as possible.
