Postdoc in Theoretical or in vivo Experimental Neuroscience
Through the SPARC program, an NIH-sponsored postdoctoral research position is available at the intersection of computational modeling and experimental neuroscience. FIU is leading groups of mathematicians and computer scientists at three other universities to create a new way to computationally model physiological systems, with a long-term goal of improving neuromodulation therapy for the lower urinary tract (and other autonomically innervated organ systems).
The postdoc will help lead the interdisciplinary project. They will be responsible for integrating and contributing to the team’s work in designing and implementing mechanistic differential equation-based models of urinary tract organs, artificial recurrent neural networks that approximate biophysical dynamics, and experimental studies in rodent models of the lower urinary tract. The project combines themes across diverse fieldssuch as mathematics, deep learning, neurophysiology, and neuromodulation, providing a dynamic and collaborative experience and a chance to contribute to the development of a fundamentally new approach for modeling systems physiology.
The lab is committed to facilitating professional development by supporting conference travel (COVID permitting), workshops, seminars, writing, and networking. The PI has received university-level recognition at FIU as a postdoc mentor, helped postdocs successfully transition to tenure track academic positions, and a record of research funding for major academic projects. The Applied Neural Interfaces Lab is a welcoming, collaborative, supportive, and hard-working environment conducive to the success of postdoctoral scholars. Successful applicants will have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, computer science, neuroscience, or a related field. We will happily consider applicants with theoretical OR in vivo electrophysiology backgrounds. Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply directly to the Principal Investigator, Zach Danziger (Zachary.Danziger@fiu.edu), with a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for three references. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications, laboratory experience, and institutional and NIH guidelines. For questions, please contact the PI by email. We look forward to hearing from you!
