The Sloan Center for Theoretical Neurobiology at UCSF solicits applications for pre- and post-doctoral fellowships, with the goal of bringing theoretical approaches to bear on neuroscience. Applicants should have a strong background and education in mathematics, theoretical or experimental physics, or computer science, and commitment to a future research career in neuroscience. Prior biological or neuroscience training is not required.
The Sloan Center offers opportunities to combine theoretical and experimental approaches to understanding the operation of the intact brain. Young scientists with strong theoretical backgrounds will receive scientific training in experimental approaches to understanding the operation of the intact brain. They will learn to integrate their theoretical abilities with these experimental approaches to form a mature research program in integrative neuroscience. The research undertaken by the trainees may be theoretical, experimental, or a combination.
To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, a statement of previous research and research goals, up to three relevant publications, and have two letters of recommendation sent to us.
The application deadline is February 1, 2000.
