You will play a pivotal role in an exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between the School of Systems Engineering (Prof Ingo Bojak), the School of Meteorology (Prof Peter Jan van Leeuwen) and the Center for Integrative Neuroscience and Neurodynamics (CINN, Prof Douglas Saddy) at the University of Reading. Together we will bring world-leading Data Assimilation techniques, developed in particular for weather forecasting, to bear on computational neuroscience by demonstrating that spontaneous and task-driven neuroimaging data (EEG and fMRI BOLD) can be described, understood and forecast in terms of highly realistic and complex models comprising a large number of neural masses distributed over a cortical discretization mesh. 

You will have:

	• Prior research experience in at least one of the following fields: Data Assimilation, Computational Neuroscience or Computational Neuroimaging Analysis
	• Excellent skills in applied mathematics, scientific programming, scientific methods and research presentation
	• A PhD in a relevant field, excellent scientific publication(s) and a track record of producing useful software (preferably C/C++ and Fortran 90)
	• Enthusiasm for an interdisciplinary project focused on neuroscience, a winning, creative personality and the drive to push technical boundaries together with our team
