POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE:
kESI – kernel-based method of electrophysiological source imaging

The Neuroinformatics Laboratory (https://neuroinflab.wordpress.com/) at 
the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of 
Sciences (NENCKI, www.nencki.gov.pl), headed by Prof. Daniel Wójcik 
(http://www.neuroinf.pl/Members/danek) invites applications for a 
postdoctoral position (36 months) that will be available as part of a 
nationally funded project (NCN OPUS).

The goal of the project is to develop and implement a new technique of 
source localization of specific events in neural activity, such as a 
seizure, from multimodal imaging data, including ECoG (strip and grid 
electrodes), depth electrophysiological recordings, and MRI data from 
humans. The method will be validated with ground truth model data and 
tested on clinical data obtained from epilepsy patients. The fellow will 
build on already existing tools and techniques developed in the lab, see 
especially Potworowski et al. 2012 and Ness et al. 2015.

Requirements:
-    PhD, preferred in  physics/biophysics, mathematics, computer 
science, electrical engineering, computational neuroscience or related 
fields
-    Strong interest in brain research
-    Preference for people with experience in one or more of: numerical 
solutions of PDEs, electrodynamics, computational neuroscience, brain 
imaging
-    Advanced programming experience, Python preferred
-    Exceptional motivation for scientific research (demonstrated in 
former education record, additional courses completed, list of 
publications and conferences attended, previous scientific experience, 
references of the candidate’s thesis advisor, letter-of-intent)
-    Proficiency in English

Application
The application should contain the following documents/information:
-    CV including the list of publications, scholarships and awards, 
list of computational projects in which the candidate participated 
(preferably with links to the project website/publication or the 
candidate’s GitHub account).
-    Copy of PhD diploma
-    The applicant should arrange for two letters of recommendation to 
be sent directly to Prof. Wojcik and should provide contact information 
(email, phone) for the two referees in the cover letter.

Preferred starting time: by September 15th, 2016 but the position is open.

Application deadline: We are accepting applications until the position 
is filled
