Postdoctoral Research Associate (Tavoni Lab)

Theoretical neuroscience

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
