The Tavoni lab develops theories and models to understand how information is represented and processed in neuronal networks and how brain computations adapt to changing environments and conditions. A range of approaches are used, including methods from statistical physics, information theory and dynamical systems.
A postdoc position is available at the interface between physics and neuroscience to study
- adult neurogenesis in the olfactory system, or
- memory retrieval in attractor networks.
A brief description of the projects can be found at http://neurosci.wustl.edu/People/Faculty/Gaia-Tavoni
Candidates with backgrounds in physics, mathematics, engineering or computer science, good programming skills, familiarity with neuroscience topics or a keen interest in computational neuroscience, proficiency in English, intellectual curiosity and drive are welcome to apply.
