Two postdoctoral Fellow positions in Computational Neuroscience are available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Sherif Elbasiouny (The Neuro Engineering, Rehabilitation, and Degeneration Lab) at the Department of Neuroscience, Cell Biology, and Physiology, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. The research work involves the development of anatomically detailed computational models of neurons in the spinal cord to investigate the basis of their neuronal excitability. Dr. Elbasiouny’s lab is currently investigating the ionic mechanisms underlying motoneuron function for neurorehabilitation applications and in neurodegenerative diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Required: The successful applicant should have: 1) a PhD in computational neuroscience, engineering, computer science, mathematics, or related areas, 2) previous research experience in computational neuroscience. Desired: Although not mandatory, it is it highly desirable if the applicant has: 1) experience in the development of anatomically detailed computational models of single cells, and 2) experience in using the NEURON simulation environment.
The positions are available immediately. The salary package is competitive and will be based upon the applicant’s experience. Funding for these positions is available for couple of years with possible extension upon research progress. Qualified applicants should email Dr. Elbasiouny at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following: 1) CV including a list of publications, 2) a brief statement of research interests, and 3) three recommendation letters emailed directly by the references to Dr. Elbasiouny. For full consideration, please apply before March 1, 2015.
