Subject: Postdoctoral position (Mathematical Neuroscience) at QIMRB, Brisbane Australia
Mathematical Neuroscience Research Fellow (full time 3 year appointment)
– Innovative biomedical modelling in the group of Prof Michael Breakspear
– Attractive salary packaging & superannuation options
This research fellow will pursue large-scale computational modelling and simulation of brain activity, and innovative analyses of time series and neuroimaging data, with particular focus on epilepsy.
– You will contribute to developing and analysing new mathematical models of large-scale brain activity, including biophysical models and networks of non-linear oscillators.
– Simulate computational models on GPUs or high performance computing clusters, and collaborate in applying these to clinical and neuroscience research.
– Perform innovative analyses of high-dimensional neurophysiological and neuroimaging data.
– Contribute to experimental design and prepare manuscripts for related studies.
– Participate in intra-mural group activities, including presentation at lab meetings and collaboration with other lab members and clinicians.
The successful applicant will possess the following: PhD in mathematics, physics, bioengineering, computer sciences or related field; demonstrated ability to implement mathematical methods in code;
evidence of strong oral and written communication skills.
Ideally candidates may also have a published track record in analysis of non-linear dynamical systems, particularly neural mass or neural field models or coupled non-linear oscillators;
previous experience with GPU programming or high performance computing clusters;
previous experience in neuroscience research;
or expertise in time series analysis or signal processing.
