[Comp-neuro] Analysis of human intracranial recordings using integrated information: (up to) 3 year postdoc in Melbourne, Australia

Naotsugu Tsuchiya naotsu at gmail.com
Sun Jan 7 00:09:15 CET 2018

Postdoc position available (up to 3 years) at Monash Neuroscience of
Consciousness (MoNoC), Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

We are seeking outstanding postdoctoral research fellows with strong skills
in computational or mathematical neuroscience, whose research ambition is
to identify the physical substrate of conscious experience.

If you are successful, you will work in Tsuchiya's lab at Monash, on our
two Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project grants (2018-2020).
Both projects will involve the analysis of intracranial neural recordings
from multiple brain areas, which are simultaneously recorded, and conscious
experience is also characterised.

In one of the projects, you will develop mathematical tools and apply the
tools to empirically test predictions from "integrated information theory
of consciousness" (Tononi 2004 BMC, 2016 NRN). For the overall idea of the
project, please see Haun et al 2017 eNeuro, Oizumi et al 2016 PLoS Comp &

You will work both independently and collaboratively with multiple PIs.
Starting date is relatively flexible. Late-stage PhD students will be
considered (only those with substantial publication records).

If you are interested, please send your CV to
Nao Tsuchiya <naotsugu.tsuchiya at monash.edu>.  Strong candidates will be
contacted through emails and interviews.

Applications will be open until the ideal candidate is identified.

Thank you
