Hi!

we currently have an open post-doctoral position for a 
neuroinformatician in Marseille, France. You will find the ad below, 
feel free to diffuse it to potentially interested candidates:

*Neuro**informatician/Mathematical modeler*

*TNG Team, **Institute of System**Neuroscience (INS**), Marseille, 
FRANCE*****

A post-doctoral position is open in the Theoretical Neurosciences Group 
(TNG) 
<http://ins.univ-amu.fr/research-teams/theoretical-neurosciences-group/>directed 
by Viktor JIRSA at the Institute of System Neuroscience (INS) for an 
experienced computational neuroscientist to work in modeling brain 
networks with the aim of creating individual Virtual Patient dementia 
models using The Virtual Brain platform as framework (see 
http://www.thevirtualbrain.org). This research project will be conducted 
in the context of the Aetionomy European consortium (IMI).


*Qualification*

Candidates must be highly motivated to work on an interdisciplinary project

and collaborate with the various members of the consortium. They should 
have a PhD degree in computational neuroscience, mathematical modeling 
or equivalent level of knowledge. A strong background in data fitting 
(Bayesian approaches, Dynamical Causal Modeling (DCM), Monte Carlo 
techniques) will be highly appreciated. Candidates must be comfortable 
working in computational environmentsand possess excellent programming 
skills. Experience with The Virtual Brain platform would be considered 
an advantage.


*The Theoretical Neuroscience group*

We are a multi-national team interested in understanding

the mechanisms underlying the spatiotemporal organization of large-scale 
brain networks. Our work comprises mathematical and computational 
modeling of large-scale network dynamics and human brain imaging data, 
the development of neuroinformatics tools for studying large-scale brain 
networks applied to concrete functions, dysfunctions (epilepsy, 
dementia) and aging.

*Terms of salary and employment*

A 12-month renewable contract will be established. Salary will depend on 
the diploma and experience. Operating language in the laboratory is 
English.

Applications including a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the names of 
two referees should be sent by September 30^th 2016 to: *Dr. Irene 
Yujnovsky* at irene.yujnovsky at univ-amu.frMore information about the INS 
and the Theoretical Neurosciences Group
