Dept. Computational Biology, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm,
currently has an opening for two postdoctoral positions in computational
neuroscience / neuroinformatics. Both projects are integrated in ongoing
collaborations with the Karolinska Institute as well as with international
partners in Europe and USA.

One position is focused on subcellular signaling pathways involved in
synaptic plasticity, and modeling of those using a systems biology
approach. The project aims specifically at understanding the mechanisms
underlying reward dependent learning and action selection in the cortex -
basal ganglia system. The ideal candidate has a PhD in the field of
computational biology/neuroscience/systems biology, as well as experience
of collaboration with experimentalists in neurobiology/biochemistry.

For the first position apply at:

The other position is focused on software development for and use of
large-scale neuronal network simulations, including simulators and tools
for model specification and 3-D visualization. A focus is on parallel
computing in a Linux environment with a 1K processor IBM Blue Gene/L
cluster computer as a dedicated resource. The ideal candidate has a PhD in
computer science – mathematics – physics with a profile towards
algorithms, computational science, and/or 3D visualization.

For the second position apply at:
http://www.kth.se/aktuellt/vacancies/1.55618?l=en_UK

For both positions a strong interest in brain research, as well as good
collaborative and communicative skills are necessary. Co-supervising of
PhD students may take place. The positions are for maximally two years.
