A postdoctoral position in the area of biological neuron modeling in the cerebellar nuclei is available in the lab of Dieter Jaeger at Emory University (Atlanta, USA). The project is tightly integrated with an experimental project of recording multiple cerebellar neurons in behaving mice in the lab of Detlef Heck in Memphis (TN, USA) and aims to reproduce recorded cerebellar nuclei activity in compartmental simulations. It is funded by an NIH CRCNS award. Simulations are based on a published model of cerebellar nuclei neurons (Steuber, V., N. W. Schultheiss, et al. (2011) "Determinants of synaptic integration and heterogeneity in rebound firing explored with data driven models of deep cerebellar nucleus cells." JCNS 30: 633-658; Steuber, V. and D. Jaeger (2013). "Modeling the generation of output by the cerebellar nuclei." Neural Networks 47(0): 112-119.).
For productive engagement in this project the candidate must have previous experience in compartmental modeling using Neuron or Genesis simulators as well as be proficient in using Matlab. The position is available immediately. Compensation is based on posted NIH NRSA levels.
Interested candidates please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a C.V. a brief statement of research interests, and the name of two references. Pre-application questions are also welcome.
