A postdoctoral position is available at Brandeis University to work on exciting problems in Mathematical Neuroscience (hosted by Jonathan Touboul). Techniques include probability, dynamical systems (with delays, jumps and/or multiple timescales) and statistical physics. Research topics include the analysis of the dynamics of neuron model or neural networks with heterogeneous elements, learning, memory and pathological brain states, as well as embryonic development of neural assemblies.

All projects will involve collaboration with experimental groups in Boston area, Paris and abroad. The position is up to 3 year term, contingent upon satisfactory progress, with competitive salary and benefit package. The suburban campus of Brandeis is just 20 minutes from the bustling academic and biotechnology centers of Boston and Cambridge; the postdoc will participate in the vibrant scholar life in Brandeis and the Boston area. The successful candidate will join the Mathematics Department at Brandeis University ( and have strong ties to the Neuroscience group ( Opportunities to teach in the math department may be available.

Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or related topic, including computational neuroscience, physics or engineering, by the starting date, and have an excellent track record of scholarship, have experience in dynamical systems and/or stochastic models, and be familiar with numerical simulations.

Applications should be submitted through and should include an AMS cover sheet, a curriculum vitae, research statement, and three letters of recommendation. First consideration will be given to applications received by December 31, 2017.

Brandeis University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer; applications from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged.
