Two year postdoctoral researcher position in multiscale analysis and modeling of epilepsy available at Boston University.
A multi-year postdoctoral researcher position in computational neuroscience is available to analyze and model multiscale voltage recordings from human patients with epilepsy. The researcher will work primarily with Professors Mark Kramer and Uri Eden in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University, and focus on two central aims: 1) Time series analysis of voltage activities recorded across multiple spatial scales (from single neuron spikes, to local field potentials, to electrocortiogram data), and 2) Development of techniques to constrain multiscale computational models directly from time series data. Other related projects will also be available, depending on the researcher's background and interests.
The project is highly interdisciplinary and will involve frequent interactions with clinical collaborators at Massachusetts General Hospital and other computational scientists. Experience in statistical signal processing (e.g., spectral analysis, Kalman filter) and computer programming suggested, and knowledge of neuroscience and dynamical systems preferred, although not essential. Please contact Mark Kramer or Uri Eden (see links below) for more information. Boston University offers a vibrant community of computational neuroscience faculty and students, and many opportunities for collaboration within and outside the University.
The preferred start date is September 1, 2011.
