Applications are invited for the following post:

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Data Analytics and Modelling of Mental Health at the University of Ulster

With the increasing volume and complexity of datasets in neuroscience and mental health, data analytics and modelling will become indispensable. This project aims to use data analytics, computational modelling, and cloud/high-performance computing to integrate and analyze available but heterogeneous data to extract patterns and predict Alzheimer's disease.

This timely, exciting and high-impact project is available in the University of Ulster' Computer Science Research Institute (in collaboration with Asystec Ltd) and is tenable in the Faculty of Computing and Engineering at the Magee Campus. The successful applicant will utilize knowledge in data analytics, cloud/high-performance computing, mathematical/statistical modelling, and brain sciences in the research. The postholder will join an externally funded multidisciplinary research team, and will benefit from the expertise of Ulster's computational neuroscience and intelligence, and Asystec's big data management and analytics. The postholder will also have the opportunity to interact with other biomedical and translational/clinical researchers in the team, and learn about advanced software development, knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship with Asystec.

All applicants should hold or about to obtain a Ph.D. degree in Computing, Engineering, Computational Neuroscience, Computational Sciences, Neuroscience, Statistics, Mathematics, Physics, or a related discipline. Applicants must be highly motivated and willing to pursue research and develop skills and knowledge across disciplines.

The application process for the post is opened with a closing date for applications on the 20th May 2015, and interviews will be held shortly after. The successful applicant is expected to start in July 2015. Further details can be found at:
