The Blue Brain Project, led by Prof. Henry Markram, seeks outstanding
candidates for the position of:

Post-doctoral Researcher in
Detailed Neuron Modeling and Dendritic Integration

The primary objectives for this position are to strengthen on-going
large-scale detailed neuron modeling and validation efforts in the
project, and to undertake original scientific research to characterize
the role of single cell and dendritic integration mechanisms in
computation and dynamics at the network level. Scientific leadership is
expected to supervise computational neuroscience students, as is an
intimate knowledge of the employed software in order to interface with
engineering teams. The position is in close contact with an
electrophysiology lab and modeling will go hand in hand with available
and newly acquired experimental data.

Detailed Requirements:

* PhD in neuroscience, computational neuroscience, physics or
related field
* expert in NEURON and multi-compartment conductance-based modeling
as demonstrated by strong publication record
* expert in automated neuron model optimization techniques
* expert knowledge of whole cell electrophysiology, ion channel
* expert of scientific computing (python, scipy, numpy, hdf5,
matplotlib, Linux, etc.)
* knowledge of other programming languages (C++) and parallel computing
is of advantage
* familiarity with model description languages (e.g. NeuroML)
* experience in supervision of students and teaching
* strong team player
* fluent English in speech and writing

What we offer:

* An internationally visible project in simulation-based research in
neuroscience having a leading role in the EU FET flagship "Human
Brain Project"
* A vibrant, dynamic, inter-disciplinary, and international working
* Very competitive salary

Start date: 1 June 2014. Deadline for application: open until position
is filled. Activity rate: 100%. Duration of contract: 1 year,
