Postdoctral position at the Department of Biomedical Data Science,
School of Medicine, Fujita Health University (FHU), Aichi, Japan

We invite applications for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher in the area of computational neuroscience or systems biology. A new collaborative project with Kyushu U (#) has been launched to elucidate biochemical signaling involved in the development of olfactory system (Fujimoto, …, Imai 2023, Dev Cell 58, 1221–1236).
We will simulate the process of mitral cell dendritic pruning that leads to the acquisition of odor selectivity. This acquisition process is governed by the coupling of biochemical signaling of small G proteins and neuronal electrical activity. In addition, the neural circuit simulation will be conducted to elucidate the emergent process of odor information processing. The NEURON simulator or the other platform simulators will be used for this project.
