Description

Post-doctoral Research Associate positions are available in the Dynamical Systems Laboratory (DSL) at the Tandon School of Engineering, New York University, to conduct fundamental research on individual and social behavior of zebrafish. Our highly-interdisciplinary research spans behavioral experiments using cutting edge techniques in robotics and computer vision, data-driven mathematical modeling based on stochastic differential equations, and statistical analysis grounded in information theory. Several ongoing grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are currently active at the DSL, fueling exciting research on zebrafish.

The DSL was established over ten years ago by Prof. Maurizio Porfiri (Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and in the newly established Department of Biomedical Engineering). The DSL is home to a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary group of young scholars, with complementary expertise across theory, experiments, and computation. The director of the DSL, Prof. Porfiri, is the author of approximately 275 journal publications and the recipient of numerous professional awards (https: // en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MaurizioPorfiri).

Application Instructions

Candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Porfiri via email (mporfiri@nyu.edu).
