A post-doc position in Computational Neuroscience is available at the University of Sussex for 20 months to be filled as soon as possible.
You will be joining the Odor Objects project (http://www.odor-objects.org/), in which we are investigating how animals interpret the complex
odor plumes of chemicals in the air to identify sources of odors and distinguish them. Odor Objects is supported by the Human Frontiers Science Program (www.hfsp.org/<http://www.hfsp.org/>)
and combines 4 international groups in Konstanz, Germany (physiology), Tempe, Arizona (behavior), Tokyo, Japan (robotics) and Brighton, UK (computational models).
If you are joining us at Sussex your work will involve computational modelling of brain networks and data analysis of related data from the experimental partners.
Models will then be used to design bio-mimetic controllers which will be tested by our partners in Japan.
We are looking for a talented post-doc with an interest in computational work. Applicants from all science disciplines are welcome but essential skills are the ability
to program, mathematical skills, e.g. to be able to apply dynamical systems analysis, and creative scientific thinking.
The bulk of the work will be carried out on the beautiful Falmer campus of the University of Sussex at the outskirts of the lively South Coast town of Brighton.
As part of the project you will travel to the project partners worldwide.
There are many opportunities for further interactions at Sussex beyond the project, e.g. with the Brains on Board project (BrainsOnBoard<http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/P006094/1)>), and a wide variety of Neuroscience
research in Sussex Neuroscience (www.sussex.ac.uk/sussexneuroscience/<http://www.sussex.ac.uk/sussexneuroscience/>).
For more details and to apply, please go to http://www.sussex.ac.uk/aboutus/jobs/1626 .
There is an initial closing date of 1 February 2017 but we will continue searching until the position is filled.
