We invite applications for an INRIA postdoctoral position to be held jointly in the Mathematical Neuroscience Team (CIRB, Collège de France) and team SYSIPHE of INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt, on the exciting subject of application of mathematics to neurosciences.
The topic of the research is to analyze the dynamics of infinite-dimensional dynamical systems in the presence of multiple timescales. This includes in particular delayed differential equations, partial differential equations, integral equations and integro-differential equations. Such problems are motivated by the analysis of models of neuronal activity. One possible direction of the research are phenomena related to the presence of sensitive dynamics such as canards and mixed-mode oscillations, which are one of the signatures of slow/ fast dynamics. One possible goal is extend the existing finite dimensional theory of canards and folded singularities to infinite dimensions. The postdoc will be given freedom to influence or possibly redesign the research direction.

Best suited for this position are candidates with background in applied mathematics and dynamical systems. Familiarity with  computational neuroscience and software for analyzing dynamical systems (e.g. AUTO) is an asset.

The position is funded for one year renewable, is accessible to young PhDs (or future PhDs) with maximum one year postdoctoral experience, and offers an attractive salary, benefits and social security. Candidates will be selected through a national level selection committee of INRIA. Interested applicants are invited to apply online:

The postdoc will take place in part in the historic building of the Collège de France, very well located in the quartier latin of Paris, in close relationship with different high level institutions (ENS Paris, Institut Curie, Collège de France). The scientific life in Paris is very exciting and lively.

Inquiries should be directed to Martin Krupa (maciej.krupa at inria.fr) or Jonathan Touboul (jonathan.touboul at inria.fr).
