PhD Studentship in Computational Neuroscience
Applications are invited for a 3 year PhD Studentship in Computational
Neuroscience in the Science and Technology Research Institute at the
University of Hertfordshire, UK. The studentship will cover a stipend of
£12,300 per year plus payment of the standard UK student fees.
Candidates should be interested in information processing in
biologically detailed models of neuronal networks. Our research involves
close collaborations with experimentalists in Europe and the USA. More
details can be found in these recent publications:
Steuber, V., Mittmann, W., Hoebeek, F.E., Silver, R.A., De Zeeuw, C.I.,
Hausser, M. and De Schutter, E. (2007). Cerebellar LTD and pattern
recognition by Purkinje cells. Neuron 54, 121-136.
Gleeson, P. Steuber, V. and Silver, R.A. (2007). neuroConstruct: A tool
for modeling networks of neurons in 3D space. Neuron, in press.
Applicants should have good computational and numerical skills and a
good first degree in maths, computer science, physics, neuroscience or
biology. Previous experience in neuroscience is not required but would
be an advantage.
The UH Science and Technology Research Institute has been rated as 4
(national excellence with evidence of international excellence) at the
last UK university research assessment exercise. It is located in
Hatfield in Hertfordshire, just north of London.
Applications including a CV, the contact details of two referees and a
short statement of research interests should be sent by email to Volker
Steuber (v.steuber at herts.ac.uk).
