Postdoctoral Position in Computational Neuroscience, Northwestern University, USA

A postdoctoral position is available at Northwestern University to develop computer simulations of deep brain stimulation.

The project involves a combination of computing, mathematical modeling, and interpretation of clinical data.

The computing component will be to adapt a novel algorithm to a parallel computing cluster.

The modeling will involve the development of a full morphology model from the basal ganglia region which is able to reproduce periodic cycles associated with Parkinsons disease, and to develop a model for a neurostimulator.

All results will be compared with interoperative data.

The applicant will work with a dynamic interdisciplinary team consisting of an applied mathematician, physiologist, and a neurosurgeon.

Experience in neurobiology preferred, but not required.

Programming experience is a must, but prior experience in parallel computing is not required.

The position is available to start now, actual start date is negotiable.
