Research Associate in Computational Modelling of Antennal Lobe Processing
Centre of Bioengineering
Department of Engineering
Salary Grade £30,594 to £35,469 p.a.
Available immediately until 30 June 2010 with the possibility of extension
The postholder will undertake and deliver research in the computational neuroscience aspects of the EU Research Grant "Biosynthetic Infochemical Communication (iChem)" a summary of which is given below. The Research Associate will be responsible for original and further development an existing model of antennal lobe sensory processing for extracting blend specific information from receptor input. The final model will be implemented in real-time to process data from genetically modified olfactory receptors. The work will involve spatiotemporal spike train analysis of extracellular antennal lobe recordings for use in fitting the model closely to biological data. Predictions using the model will then be used to guide experimental work at one of the Consortia Partner's sites, Max Planck Institute Chemical Ecology, Jena.
The post will be based at Leicester but will also involve some travel within Europe. Applicants should have a PhD (or close to completing a PhD) in a relevant area and a background in computational neuroscience. Experience in spike train analysis as well as building and testing neuronal models is desirable.
