The Research Fellow will conduct theoretical research aimed at understanding the neurobiological communication and information storage mechanisms that exist within mammalian brains. The approach will be to combine mathematical modelling with computational simulations. The project is aligned with an Australian Research Council funded Discovery Grant, and is in collaboration with University of British Columbia, Canada.
The position is for two years full time, as follows:
-Salary range: AU$79,145 - AU$93,986 pa
-Total remuneration range approximately: AU$87K - AU$103K pa; This includes salary, employer super contributions of 9% salary and annual leave loading.
It is essential that applicants possess (or are soon to submit) a doctorate (or equivalent research experience) in the area of computational and theoretical neuroscience, or closely related areas including electronic engineering, mathematical/statistical physics, applied mathematics, biophysics, biomedical engineering and mathematical biology.
The successful application will also be able to demonstrate expert mathematical knowledge in at least one of the following four areas: nonlinear dynamics; information theory; numerical methods; signal processing.
