Tue Feb 10 12:40:55 CET 2009


Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Computational Neuroscience

Salary: **£29,704 to £35,469** per annum, depending on qualifications 
and experience
Start date: 01 May 2009 (flexible by agreement)
End date: 30 April 2012 (3 years fixed-term from start date)
Closing date for applications: 07 March 2009

A full-time post-doctoral position is available as part of a new 
multidisciplinary research group within the Department of Informatics, 
starting 1 May 2009. The research initiative is funded by an EPSRC 
‘Leadership Award' (EP/G007543/1), entitled ‘Towards a Next-Generation 
Computational Neuroscience'. You will work with Dr. Anil Seth (Principal 
Investigator) and other researchers in the group, on building 
computational models of the complex brain networks underlying 
consciousness, creating new analysis tools appropriate to high-volume 
neural data, and developing new theory linking neural dynamics to 
conscious phenomenology. The work plan includes opportunities to analyze 
novel experimental data and to test model predictions using functional 
neuroimaging.

The post has a broad research remit with opportunities to follow your 
own research interests within the general area of computational 
neuroscience relevant to consciousness. Emphasis will be given to 
developing and implementing network and time-series analysis methods to 
data from computational models and neuroimaging experiments, and/or to 
the design of models reflecting putative neural mechanisms of 
consciousness.

Successful candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree in a 
quantitative science discipline. Prior postdoctoral experience is 
preferred, as are candidates with a strong computational background, or 
a strong background in quantitative cognitive neuroscience.

Informatics, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9QJ, UK;
