Research Fellow Position in Mathematical Modelling and Feedback Control of Neural Systems
Research Fellow Grade 2 (Level B)

NeuroEngineering Laboratory, Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering
The University of Melbourne

We seek a highly motivated person with expertise in neuroengineering, neural modelling, and control theory. The primary aim of this project is to devise and validate mathematical models of neural circuits and to developed closed-loop control algorithms for those circuits. In particular, the project will use experimental observations to derive and test transfer functions of afferent and efferent nerve activity for closed- loop control of inflammatory bowel disease.  The mathematical modelling objective will run alongside physiological experiments to derive the transfer functions that constitute the most important aspects of the system.

The research fellow will contribute to all aspects of the project, including the development of the transfer functions and the development of closed-loop control algorithms. This will involve working with physiologists to obtain the necessary neural and network parameters, constructing neuron models that match biological data, developing the control models and analysing their behaviour and parameter dependence, and implementing the algorithms to assess their effect. The person may also co-supervise PhD, MPhil and Master of Engineering students.

The position is available for two years, renewable for a further two years depending on funding availability.
