*Research Engineer/Post-doc in Computational Neuroscience***

*Institute of System Neuroscience (INS**), UMR1106 AMU-Inserm, 
Marseille, FRANCE***

**

An engineer/post-doctoral position**is open in the Theoretical 
Neuroscience 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 epilepsy 
models using The Virtual Brain platform as framework (see 
http://www.thevirtualbrain.org).

*Qualification*

Candidates must be highly motivated to work on an interdisciplinary 
project and collaborate with the various members of the group and with 
clinicians. They should have a degree in computational neuroscience, 
engineering or equivalent level of knowledge. A strong background in 
computational neuroscience (networks, modeling, dynamic system theory) 
and/or 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 using The Virtual Brain 
platform and development of software or clinical databases 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 April 30^th 2017 to: *Dr. Irene 
Yujnovsky* at irene.yujnovsky at univ-amu.fr
