Postdoc Research Fellow in Computational Neuroscience

A postdoctoral research fellowship in computational neuroscience is available immediately, working with Christina Weaver (Department of Mathematics). The postdoctoral fellow will be a vital member of the interdisciplinary research team led jointly by Dr. Weaver and Dr. Jennifer Luebke (Dept of Anatomy & Physiology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston MA).The research will explore structural and functional abnormalities of neurons in two different mouse models of Huntington’s Disease, and how these abnormalities might contribute to system-level dysfunction. Computational modeling of cortical and striatal neurons (both spatially extended compartment models and point neuron models) will be conducted in tandem with empirical studies of these same neurons using in vitro slice electrophysiology and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The neuron models developed in this project will be incorporated into models of local microcircuits…
