Applications are invited for a three year postdoc position in computational neuroscience. The project will focus on information processing in the vestibular cerebellum and involve the construction of a detailed model of the cerebellar cortex in 3D that is based on new physiological and morphological data. The position is funded by a Systems Biology Fellowship from the BBSRC (UK) and the ANR (France) and requires close collaboration with experimental and theoretical neuroscientists at UCL, the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Université Paris Descartes and Université Paris 5.

More details about our research interests can be found under http://homepages.feis.herts.ac.uk/~comqvs/ and in these recent publications:

Gleeson, P. Steuber, V. and Silver, R.A. (2007). neuroConstruct: A tool for modeling networks of neurons in 3D space. Neuron 54, 219-235.

You should have a PhD in computational neuroscience or a related discipline. Previous experience in biologically realistic modelling and knowledge of simulation tools such as NEURON or GENESIS is not required, but would be an advantage. Good scientific communication and writing skills and the ability to work as part of a team are essential.

The UH Science and Technology Research Institute has been rated as 4 (national excellence with evidence of international excellence) at the last UK university research assessment exercise. It is located in Hatfield in Hertfordshire, just north of London.

The University offers a range of benefits including a final salary pension scheme, professional development, family friendly policies, child care vouchers, waiving of course fees for the children of staff at UH, discounted memberships at the Hertfordshire Sports Village and generous annual leave.
