[Comp-neuro] postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience at University of Glasgow

I have a postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience available in
my laboratory at the University of Glasgow. The position if funded for
three years and application deadline is April 2nd 2013.

The project aims at developing a novel set of novel information theoretic
algorithms for the analysis of simultaneous recordings from large
populations of retinal ganglion cells under dynamic natural visual
stimulation. The purpose of these algorithms is to understand how
interactions among groups of neurons contribute to visual processing. These
algorithms will be applied to analyse the functional response properties of
these cells and will expose new principles of spike timing encoding that
bridge the gap between single cell and population information processing.

 The post is funded by the European Union Future Emerging Technology
“VISUAL MODELLING USING GANGLION CELLS” grant. The project will involve
collaborations with a retinal neurophysiology laboratory at Gottingen
University (Prof Tim Gollisch), as well as collaborations with neuromorphic
electronic engineers and roboticists (University of Zurich, and University
of Ulster) to contribute to the development of novel theoretical and
hardware models of biological retinal ganglion cell types for dynamic
vision applications.**

Salary will be on the University’s Research and Teaching Grade 7 £32,267 -
£36,298 per annum

Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact me by email (
