The Faculty of Mathematics & Informatics at the University of Barcelona invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in Mathematical Neuroscience for a two-month contract, to participate in a European Project aimed at the theoretical formalization of the neural dynamics of reward for decision-making. The project involves a European consortium of universities and research institutions (Pompeu Fabra University, CNRS, University of Leuven, La Sapienza University), within the Human Brain Project.
We seek a strongly motivated candidate to develop complex computational models with a focus on system-level, large ensemble neuronal dynamics. Candidates are expected to have experience with sophisticated computational modelling of brain function, and with the use of predominantly computational approaches to study how biologically realistic large-scale neural networks model behavioural phenomena.
The Department of Mathematics & Informatics at the University of Barcelona offers a stimulating scientific environment, state of the art laboratory space and exceptional computational facilities (http://mat.ub.edu ). Barcelona is a vibrant cultural city, which offers a rich academic environment, with five major universities. Barcelona also hosts an active and dynamic community of systems and computational neuroscience (https://barccsyn.org/ ). The candidates will have outstanding opportunities to interact and collaborate with other scientists at the University of Barcelona (http://www.ub.edu/cvub/) and the Pompeu Fabra University (https://www.upf.edu/web/tcn/ ). The University of Barcelona offers a competitive salary and a complete range of employee benefits.
- The appointed candidate will be expected to carry out outstanding research, be proficient in the analysis of neural data, construct computational models, write scientific manuscripts and present at conferences.
- The working language is English.
- The candidate needs to hold a PhD in Mathematics, Physics (or equivalent) and demonstrate significant research experience. She/he needs to show an exceptional track record in the field, including decision-making, computational approaches to the study of neural networks and the modelling of behaviour.
- We will prioritize candidates with a solid research track record and excellent writing and communication skills in English.
- Financial support is provided by the European Commission in the context of the Human Brain Project.
