Position Description:    

*** The account for Mathematics, University of Pittsburgh has expired and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The neural dynamics and computation group of Dr. Chengcheng Huang at the University of Pittsburgh has a postdoctoral position available. The Huang group investigates the nervous system using computational modeling and mathematical analysis of neural networks. We develop theoretical approaches to understanding circuit dynamics and information processing in sensory systems. We are interested in how different task and stimulus contexts change neuronal responses and the implications on neural coding, with an emphasis on neural variability. Potential projects include 1) the functional roles of interneuron subtypes in sensory and associative cortex, 2) attentional modulation on information flow and 3) interareal communication with feedforward and feedback connections. The candidate will have the opportunity to work with our experimental collaborators at the University of Pittsburgh. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a related field, such as computational neuroscience, mathematics, physics or engineering. The University of Pittsburgh is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from under-represented groups. If interested, please email a CV and a brief research statement to
