One or more PhD positions in computational neuroscience are available in 
the Neural Reckoning Group of Dan Goodman at the Department of 
Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London. I am 
interested in supervising students with a strong mathematical, 
computational or neuroscience background. Projects could be carried out 
in several possible areas, including neuroinformatics (i.e simulation 
and analysis of neural data) or sensory neuroscience (e.g. spiking 
neural models in the auditory system). For more information about the 
group, including some suggestions for research topics, see 
http://neural-reckoning.org/openings.html. In addition to working within 
the group, studying at Imperial College provides excellent opportunities 
for interacting with other theoretical and experimental researchers, 
both at Imperial (recently ranked 2nd in the world in the QS world 
university rankings) and in the many neuroscience groups in London.

Applicants should initially send me a brief CV and cover letter with a 
description of research interests or a proposed project, and will 
eventually have to formally apply through the standard Imperial College 
mechanism (for more information, see 
http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/electricalengineering/courses/phd). Funding 
is available for at least one student, and there are several competitive 
funding schemes at Imperial which would provide funding for additional 

Also, please forward this message on to any of your students or 
colleagues with students that you think may be interested.
