This is a Research Associate post in mathematical optimization and is
part of the CARMEN (Code Analysis, Repository, and Modelling for
e-Neuroscience) project - www.carmen.org.uk. This is an e-Science
pilot project which started in October 2006, and is funded by the UK
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The post at Sheffield will focus on developing tools for automated
parameter search within the context of building conductance-based
neuronal models. This project links to the wider programme of
computational neuroscience conducted within the Adaptive Behaviour
Research Group (ABRG - www.shef.ac.uk/~abrg) and the appointee will
become part of a vibrant and successful research team. While a
knowledge of neuroscience is not a necessary prerequisite, the
successful applicant has the opportunity to engage with a vibrant
research culture within the Adaptive Behaviour Research Group (ABRG).

Applicants should have an honours degree (or equivalent experience) in
Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering or related field, and
should have, or be working towards, a PhD preferably in which
optimization or parameter search is a key technique. The post is
tenable from 1 January 2008, or as soon as possible thereafter, for
two years.
