Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience (but embedded in a mechanics group)

rkraft's picture

I realize this is a bit off topic from traditional iMechania job posts, however our group is primarily a computational biomechanics group. We conduct much research in the area of brain biomechanics and more recently are working to move into multiphysics and multiscale areas of brain science. This project, funded by the NIH Brain Initiative, focuses on growth and bioelectric simulations of neuronal cell networks. For the right individual, with a motivation to expand their knowledge into totally new areas and apply their skills associated with computational mechanics this could be a rewarding project. Here are more details.

Immediate Opening. Conduct research in computational neuroscience. Program, develop, and analyze computer models of neurons in engineered neural networks. Research project is funded by NIH. Position is for 1 year with a possible 1 year extension. 


To apply, please e-mail resume, a representative publication(s), and the names and addresses of two references to the above contact. Please specifically reference this posting. Review of applications will begin immediately until the position is filled.
