Job Description: Postdoctoral Researcher in Neuron Modeling

The Blue Brain Project, headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, is an
international research venture to reverse-engineer the brain and enable
next-generation fundamental and medical research through simulation. BBP is
now seeking for immediate hire a

Postdoctoral Researcher in Neuron Modeling,

for immediate hire, to strengthen the project’s computational neuroscience
team and to prepare it for the next steps of growth.

The primary objective for this position is to contribute to the ongoing
large-scale detailed neuron modeling and validation efforts and to advance
the model generation and validation of the full diversity of neuron
electrical properties and dendritic integration. Scientific leadership is
expected to cosupervise computational neuroscience students and the software
expertise to interface with the technical teams. The position will involve a
close interaction between the electrophysiology lab and computer

Detailed Requirements:

·            PhD in the field of computational neuroscience

·            expert knowledge in NEURON and multi-compartment
conductance-based modeling

·            expert knowledge in whole cell electrophysiology, ion channel
experiments and models

·            expert knowledge in Python and Matlab

·            profound knowledge of model specification languages such as

·            profound knowledge in other programming languages (C++) and
parallel computing is of advantage

·             ‘can-do’ attitude for pragmatic prototypes that accompany the
global model building and validation strategy

·            co-supervision of PhD students

·            fluent written and spoken English

What we offer:

·           An internationally visible and rising project successfully
