POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available immediately to study the neuronal basis of
behavior via neural network models of chemotaxis in the nematode worm C.
elegans. Realistic computer models of the chemotaxis network, constrained
by anatomical and electrophysiological data, will be optimized by neural
network training algorithms to reproduce chemotaxis behavior of real
worms. Models will be tested by comparing the effects of killing the same
neurons in the model and biological networks. Previous training in
modeling, electrophysiology, applied mathematics, or physics helpful.
