Postdoctoral Fellowships in Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience
at the University of Pennsylvania

The Computational Neuroscience Initiative (CNI) of the University of
Pennsylvania seeks exceptional candidates for a CNI Postdoctoral
Fellowship. Candidates with strong quantitative skills from a variety of
fields including neuroscience, cognitive science, psychology,
biophysics, physics, mathematics, systems biology, computer science and
engineering will be considered. The selected Fellows will join an
inter-disciplinary research environment in historic Philadelphia.  CNI
Fellows will be encouraged to foster collaborative research between
multiple labs,  organize a weekly seminar/chalk talk series for the CNI
community, and serve as mentors to students.  The Fellowship will
provide salary and travel support for the fellow over a 3 year term.

The CNI supports interdisciplinary and collaborative research at the
frontier of knowledge about the brain, behavior, and the mind (see
http://cni.upenn.edu/). We focus on systems-level approaches that
integrate theory and computation with experiment. Our members include
faculty, post-docs, and students from multiple programs and departments
including neurobiology, cognitive science, psychology, physics,
mathematics, systems biology, electrical engineering, bioengineering,
and computer science. Our research and training spans the three major
elements of the field of Computational Neuroscience:

           1) Theory – understanding the brain as an information-processing machine;
           2) Experiments – providing quantitative methods to aid in the
               design, implementation, analysis, and interpretation of empirical
               studies that probe all levels of brain function, from molecules to
               behavior; and
           3) Applications – including robotics, brain-machine
                interfaces, and new clinical tools.

Applications should be submitted by email to compneuro at sas.upenn.edu<mailto:compneuro at sas.upenn.edu>,
and should consist of a CV and a cover letter stating the candidate's
research experience, reasons for applying to this Fellowship, and
research interests. Please arrange for up to three letters of
recommendation to be sent to the same email address as well, with the
candidate’s name in the subject line. Review of applications will start
on March 15, 2017.

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented
individuals from diverse backgrounds (http://jobs.hr.upenn.edu<http://jobs.hr.upenn.edu/>).
