[Description of the institution (year of establishment, capital amount, number of employees, etc.), details of the business, recruitment background information, project description, etc.]
We invite applications for a postdoctral researcher in the area of mathematical/computational modeling of biochemical signaling in neurons. A new collaborative project with Kyoto U has been launched for the elucidation of liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) of synaptic molecules (#). We will develop computational models that describe the LLPS, and simulate the spatiotemporal dynamics of synaptic biochemical signaling, to elucidate how our learning and memory are organized. We also conduct a long-standing project on electron microscopic (EM) connectomics. The applicant is also expected to contribute to this project from the informatics aspect.
