Handy guide to open UW jobs for computational and experimental neuroscientists and neuro engineers
Deadlines are Nov 15 so get your applications in quick to join a fantastic community at the University of Washington. Everyone listed here and more are affiliated with our Computational Neuroscience Center.
Physiology and Biophysics:
PBIO is a storied department with historical strengths in quantitative physiology, including neuroscience from ion channels to nonhuman primate decision making, but also cardiovascular physiology and cell biology. Chaired by Beth Buffalo, it houses the Computational Neuroscience Center which includes PBIO faculty Adrienne Fairhall, new hire Edgar Walker and adjunct prof Eric Shea-Brown. This is a broad search– looking for creative science within the entire spectrum of physiology and biophysics. Since there was a computational neuroscience search recently, a computational neuroscientist is unlikely to get through in this position, but theory in other areas is not ruled out.
Biological Structure is a small department with a fascinatingly broad range of topic areas but a focus on neuroscience, systems and developmental. Faculty include Anitha Pasupathy, Wyeth Bair and Nick Steinmetz. This listing is for a neuroscientist with a disease focus.
Computer Science and Engineering:
Very highly ranked CS department with a long-standing representation in computational neuroscience thanks to Rajesh Rao. Strong ML and AI faculty; this search is open to someone in the neuro/AI space, neural engineering or computational neuroscience, especially those with a past background in machine learning, AI, CS or related fields.
Electrical and Computer Engineering:
This is also a department with a wide range of interests, especially in advancing novel ideas about computation. This department houses computational neuroscientist Eli Shlizerman and shares the appointments of amazing NHP experimentalists Amy Orsborn and Azadeh Yazdan with Bioengineering. Neural computing is included in the purview for these THREE jobs:
