Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Whole Brain Modelling

The Whole Brain Modelling Group (PI Dr. John Griffiths; www.grifflab.com)
at the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, Toronto, is looking to hire a
Post-Doctoral Fellow with a strong background in computational neuroscience
and/or neuroimaging. The successful candidate shall spearhead the group's
efforts in computational modelling of large-scale brain dynamics, with a
particular focus on brain stimulation (TMS, TDCS), EEG, neural plasticity,
and macro-connectomics.

The fellow will have the opportunity to shape the details of the project
based on their specific interests, as well as to contribute to other
ongoing projects on a range of topics, including: neuroinformatics of
whole-brain modelling, mapping and modelling anatomical connectivity and
microstructure with DWI in relation to ageing and stroke, and multi-scale
modelling of the thalamocortical system in relation to sleep,
pharmacological neuromodulation, and neuropsychiatric disease.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in neuroscience, engineering,
physics, psychology, or related area, a track record for independent
research, and a strong publication record. Strong programming skills and
familiarity with neuroimaging data analysis (s/d/fMRI and/or M/EEG) are
required; experience with computational modelling using numerical
simulations (particularly modelling of neural population activity with
mean-field/neural mass/neural field techniques) would be advantageous.

Full details of the position and application instructions can be found at

For informal inquiries, please email Dr. John Griffiths at
john.griffiths at camh.ca with the title “Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Whole
Brain Modelling” in the subject line.
