Postdoc kESI

OPEN POSITION

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE: 
kESI – kernel-based method of electrophysiological source imaging

The Neuroinformatics Laboratory at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, invites applications for a postdoctoral position (36 months).

The goal of the project is to develop and implement a new technique of source localization of specific events in neural activity, such as a seizure, from multimodal imaging data, including ECoG (strip and grid electrodes), depth electrophysiological recordings, and MRI data from humans. The method will be validated with ground truth model data and tested on clinical data obtained from epilepsy patients. The fellow will build on already existing tools and techniques developed in the lab, see especially Potworowski et al. 2012 and Ness et al. 2015.

The ideal candidate will have a strong computational background, experience in numerical solutions of PDEs, electrodynamics, computational neuroscience, or brain imaging. We can only accept candidates 0 to 7 years after reception of PhD (+1,5 year per child for mothers).

To apply or inquire send email to d.wojcik@nencki.gov.pl. Applications should include a CV, statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details of one to three referees. To demonstrate your prowess in Python provide your github account or solutions to problems 1-4 provided here (at least two, the more the better).

The deadline for application is July 9, 2017
