[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral Fellow: Indianapolis, US/Paris, France

Postdoctoral position:  Indianapolis, Indiana, United States/Paris, France    

A postdoctoral position is available for a USA-France collaborative project on the influence of alcohol on the central dopamine system. The project combines computational and experimental techniques. The post-doc will design a biophysical model of the brain circuitry affected by alcohol. The position is available beginning January 2014 for up to three years. The time will be divided between two institutions: Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, and École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France. In Indianapolis, the post-doc will work with Prof. Kuznetsov (Mathematics Dept.) and Prof. Lapish (Psycology Dept.). In Paris, he or she will work with Prof. Gutkin (Group of Neural Theory, ENS) and Prof. Mamelli (Institut du Fer a Moulin, INSERM). Both locations provide an excellent environment for collaborative research in quantitative biosciences.
