SCHOLARSHIP FOR A PhD STUDENT (Massey University, Auckland)

A PhD student is sought for a research project that aims at 
understanding the complex behaviour of the respiratory neural network by 
using recently developed numerical methods, called "equation free" (EF) 
techniques. The student will work with Drs Alona Ben-Tal and Carlo Laing 
at the Institute of Information and Mathematical Sciences at Massey 
University, Albany campus, Auckland. The work is in collaboration with 
Prof Yannis Kevrekidis (Princeton University, USA) and Dr Jeffrey Smith 
(National Institutes of Health, USA), and the student will have the 
opportunity to visit the USA.

Salary (funded by the Marsden Fund): $25,000 pa scholarship (tax free) 
for three years + tuition fees.

A good knowledge of nonlinear dynamics, scientific programming, and 
physiology will be an advantage but is not necessary. To apply, please
