Blue Brain Porject (Campus Biotech, Geneva, Switzerland) is looking for a*
Post-doctoral Researcher in Computational modelling of thalamo-cortical

The goal of this project is to leverage the Blue Brain software and
existing thalamic models to build and validate biologically-accurate models
of thalamo-cortical circuitry. Modelling these circuits is a crucial step
to investigate brain functions, such us sensory transmission, sleep
rhythms, wakefulness, alertness.
The successful candidate would be responsible for gathering data about
thalamo-cortical circuits from the literature, open-access datasets and in
vitro studies in collaboration with the experimental lab. Interactions with
biology and experimental experts would be fundamental to validate and
confirm model predictions.
In addition, the candidate would provide guidance and scientific expertise
to the technical teams and contribute to the on-going refinement of
workflows and tools to build data-driven unifying brain tissue models.
Furthermore, the candidate will work in collaboration with engineering
teams on visualization, high performance computing, data integration and
with project managers to define objectives and timelines to achieve
overarching objectives and meet aggressive deadlines.
