ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
- In close collaboration with theoreticians and experimental colleagues, design, implement and conduct single-neuron and large-scale network simulations of human middle temporal gyrus.
- Contribute to ongoing efforts in computational framework development (simulation and data analysis) as well as to scientific questions relevant to the system under investigation.
- Contribute to adjacent projects related to human pathophysiology and neurotherapies.
- Publish/present findings in peer-reviewed journals/scientific conferences.
- Prepare written and oral reports on a regular basis.
- Maintain clear and accurate communication with supervisor, team members and external collaborators.
- PhD degree in computational neuroscience, physics, applied mathematics, bioengineering or related field.
- Strong background in scientific computing; experience in computational neuroscience is preferred, but other strong applicants will be considered (with background in computational physics, applied mathematics, biophysics, and related disciplines). Experience with parallel computing is a plus as well as familiarity with high-level programming languages such as Python.
- Familiarity with in vitro and in vivo electrophysiological monitoring techniques and analysis.
- Ability to meet aggressive timelines and deliverables in a collaborative environment.
- Strong publication record.
- Experience in pursuing research projects in collaborative fashion.
- Proven independent thinking and flexibility.
- Strong written and verbal communication skills.
