Informatics: Chair of Computational Neuroscience
University of Edinburgh

The School of Informatics seeks to appoint an outstanding computational 
neuroscientist to provide leadership within the existing computational 
neuroscience group within the Institute for Adaptive and Neural 
Computation.

The development and use of predictive models plays a fundamental role in 
much scientific endeavour. To model the nervous system requires building 
and integrating models at many different spatial and temporal scales. 
Computational neuroscience covers a broad range of topics in the study 
of development and plasticity, from cellular and subcellular aspects of 
development through to computational models of neurons and neural 
circuitry which model higher brain function.

The successful candidate will have an international research profile in 
computational neuroscience. The appointee will be expected to provide 
leadership within the existing computational neuroscience group within 
the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation. This group includes 
five core academic staff and five postdoctoral researchers. It has 
extensive research collaborations within the University, the UK and 
overseas, and is supported by various grants one which supports the 
recently renewed multimillion pound Doctoral Training Centre in 
Neuroinformatics and Computational Neuroscience. This is funded by three 
UK Research Councils and offers 10 4-year PhD studentships every year 
until 2012.
