Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience

We invite applications for a 5 years EPSRC funded postdoctoral
fellowship to work on theoretical and computational models of neural
information processing and plasticity in the neocortex.

Applicants should have a strong background in mathematics, physics,
computer science, or computational neuroscience and have a commitment
to a future research career in neuroscience. Prior biological or 
neuroscience training is not required.

The fellowship allows for top class research in a stimulating
environment. The project involves a large number of labs in the UK
working together to understand cortical computation and its functional
circuitry. With regular meetings and collaborations, it brings together
cortical modellers and physiologists from the UK and abroad. The
Edinburgh component of this work will supervised by David Willshaw and
Mark van Rossum of the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation,
School of Informatics. 

Edinburgh is one of the leading centres in the UK for Comp Neuroscience.
The institute hosts the EPSRC/MRC Doctoral Training Centre in
Neuroinformatics. It provides a large, active community in computational
neuroscience with strong links with the neuroscience research groups in
Edinburgh and the wider area. Edinburgh has been voted as 'best place to
live in Britain'.

The expected starting data is late summer. The maximal duration is five
years.
