The Burak Lab at the Hebrew University is seeking to hire a postdoctoral research fellow in theoretical neuroscience. The postdoctoral fellow will take part in the ERC funded KiloNeurons project, in collaboration with the Moser lab (Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, Norway). The project aims to identify how thousands of neurons in the mammalian cortex interact with each other to achieve computational and cognitive functions.
The KiloNeurons project offers opportunities to work on diverse theoretical and computational questions. These involve approaches ranging from pure theoretical modeling to analysis and interpretation of large scale neural data. Theoretical tools include methods from nonlinear dynamics, machine learning, statistical physics, and information theory.
A generous budget is available for travel between Israel and Norway to facilitate interaction with members of the Moser lab, as well as for travel and participation in scientific meetings, and for purchase of computing equipment.
