Applications for two NIH-funded post-doctoral positions are invited for
the Laboratory of Dr. Wilson Truccolo in the Department of Neuroscience at
Brown University, Providence, RI, USA. The first position is for the
development of data-driven stochastic models of multiscale neural dynamics
in human epilepsy. Data consist of simultaneous recordings of ensembles of
single neurons, local field potentials and ECoGs during seizure and
non-seizure states in individuals with intractable epilepsy. The project
involves a collaboration between the labs of Dr. Truccolo and Dr. Sydney
Cash (Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston). The second position is for
the development of stochastic models of intra- and inter-areal network
dynamics in the motor cortex of nonhuman primates performing motor tasks.
The project involves a collaboration between the labs of Dr. Truccolo and
Dr. John Donoghue (Brown University). The ideal candidates for these 2
positions will have a strong background in computational/theoretical
neuroscience and stochastic modeling of neural dynamics. For the first
position, prior experience with epilepsy research is a plus. Inquiries
should be addressed to Dr. Truccolo (wilson_truccolo at brown.edu).
Applications including a CV, statement of research interests, and the names
and full contact details of three referees should be sent to:
wilson_truccolo at brown.edu.
