Postdoctoral fellowship in cortical circuit modelling at Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, Toronto

Hay lab, at Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics and the University of Toronto, is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in using computational models to study the effects of cellular mechanisms on cortical circuit activity and brain recordings, in health and disease.
We will simulate biophysical models of cortical circuits, constrained with data from rodents and humans, to study the effect of synaptic connectivity and dendritic ion channels on cortical circuit activity and processing. In turn, we will characterize the predicted signatures of the effects in measurable signals of cortical circuit activity, which will include the spatiotemporal propagation of neuronal spiking activity, LFP in different cortical layers, and EEG.

The fellowship will be up to 3 years, renewed yearly. Applicants should have strong and relevant peer-reviewed publications, particularly modeling studies of spiking neuronal networks (conductance-based or integrate-and-fire), and experience in using NEURON and Matlab.

Hay lab is located at Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics (KCNI), which is part of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The centre is affiliated with the University of Toronto, and is situated at the downtown campus. Neuroscience research at KCNI offers a unique environment that is both specialized and collaborative, spanning computational genomics, brain circuits, whole-brain networks, and behavior.

Interested applicants should send their CV to Dr. Etay Hay, at:
