Computational Neuroscience Postdoctoral Research Associate Position

The College of William and Mary

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in mathematical/computational neuroscience to work with Prof. Gregory D. Smith in the Dept of Applied Science at the College of William and Mary

Evidence of potential for quality research in neural computational modeling at the cellular or systems level is essential. Working knowledge of XPP, C, LATEX, MATLAB and the UNIX operating system are desired.

The successful applicant will be funded by NSF Division of Integrative Biology and Neuroscience to use a computational approach to investigate the function of visually-responsive inhibitory neurons located in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and have opportunity to collaborate with experimental visual neuroscientist S. Murray Sherman (SUNY, Stony Brook) and/or theorist John Rinzel (New York University).

For additional information or to apply email Prof. Smith ( and include:

  1. a full curriculum vitae including a list of publications and professional experience and
