Dear colleagues,


Two funded *Ph.D. positions* are available in the newly established
Adaptive Decision-making lab as a part of Neuroscience, Neurodisability and
Neurological Disorders research theme, Biosciences Institute, Newcastle
University, UK. The research carried out as part of th Ph.D fellowship
will investigate
the role of behaviourally relevant neural circuits in decision-making and
its dysfunctions in neurological disorders using experimental and
theoretical approaches (PNAS 2016; BRAIN 2019; bioRxiv 2020). Exciting
local and international collaborations will ensure a high standard of
training and mentorship. The position is funded (UK/EU rate) for up to 3.5
years and the application deadline is *6th January 2020*. Application
details can be found here or by email provided below:
https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/mrc-dimen-doctoral-training-partnership-investigating-cognitive-correlates-of-circuit-dysfunctions-in-autism-spectrum-disorders/?p114660
.



Additionally, the Banerjee Lab is also hiring a *Data Scientist* to be
involved in projects that focus on understanding cortical computation
during behaviour by combining large-scale recordings and imaging of
neuronal populations. This person will be involved in analysing
experimental data, developing software tools, and helping with data
infrastructure. The application deadline is *31st January 2020*.



Qualifications for the Data scientist position:



-       M.Sc. degree (or exceptional B.Sc.) in Physics, Computer Science,
Mathematics, Engineering, or related technical field.

-       Programming experience in MATLAB is required, and additional
experience in Python and LABView is preferred.

-       Background in computational neuroscience, image analysis, or
machine learning is a plus.



For informal inquiry, or if interested in applying for the Data scientist
position, please submit a CV along with names of 3 referees to:

Dr. Abhi Banerjee <abhi.banerjee at newcastle.ac.uk>. More details here:
