*Large-Scale Computational Models of Thalamocortical Systems Underlying 
Consciousness.*  Funding is available (for UK/EU applicants) for a 
three-year full-time D.Phil. (Ph.D) in the area of computational 
neuroscience and consciousness, supervised by Dr. Anil Seth and Prof. 
Owen Holland. The successful candidate will develop a large-scale 
computational model of human thalamocortical systems using Graphics/ 
/Processor Unit (GPU) technology, and will use the model to investigate 
the neuronal consequences of simple psychophysical manipulations. The 
position will suit a candidate highly qualified in software engineering 
with a strong interest, and preferably prior training, in computational 
neuroscience and consciousness science. Sussex has one of the highest 
concentrations of expertise in consciousness science in the world, and 
this research area is growing rapidly within the University.  For more 
information and for how to apply please visit

candidates should contact Dr. Seth (a.k.seth at sussex.ac.uk).  Closing 
date for applications is Feb 20, 2010.
