Readership opening in Computational Neuroscience
The School of Informatics is expanding its activity in computational
neuroscience and seeks to make a new appointment at the Readership
level (similar to US Associate Professor).
The successful candidate will have an international research profile
in computational neuroscience as applied to any aspect of the
development and functioning of the nervous system. Both candidates
engaged in computational modelling, and candidates who combine
computational and experimental approaches are invited to apply. We
are particularly interested in people who can develop collaborations
with the broad spectrum of basic and clinical neuroscientists at
Edinburgh, and/or develop links with other related fields represented at
Edinburgh such as bioinformatics, systems biology and machine
The appointee will join the existing computational neuroscience group,
which includes five core academic staff and five postdoctoral
researchers. The group has extensive research collaborations within
the university, the UK and overseas, with considerable grant support.
The appointee will have the opportunity to be involved with the
Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) in Neuroinformatics and Computational
Neuroscience. The DTC offers 12 funded 4-year PhD studentships
annually, and with over 50 PhD projects currently running in this area
provides a lively community.
