The position will involve theoretical modelling of thalamocortical
development, closely constrained by experimental data from all 4 labs.
Applicants should have a background in mathematical modelling, ideally
in a neuroscience context. To apply please send a CV, cover letter and
contact information for at least 2 referees to Geoff Goodhill
(g.goodhill at uq.edu.au).
