The School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, invites applications
for a full-time, fixed term Research Associate position on the project
"Novel techniques for stochastic modelling of time-dependent
multivariate relationships with application to primary visual cortex",
funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
(EPSRC), and directed by Dr Arno Onken (PI).

The successful candidate will contribute to the development of a new
framework for analysing multi-modal and multi-scale neural recordings.
Moreover, the candidate will apply this framework to analyse activity of
large neural populations recorded from awake mice during a virtual
reality task by experimental project partner Dr Nathalie Rochefort.

Candidates should have a PhD (or near completion) in a quantitative
discipline (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Computational
Neuroscience or related), good software development skills and a keen
interest in interdisciplinary research. A background in neuroscience is
desirable, but not essential.

The post is full time and fixed term at UE07: £33,199 - £39,609 pa. The
post is available from 1st March 2019 for 36 months until the scheduled
end of the project at 28th February 2022.
