Postdoctoral Research Associates in Neurophysics and Brain Dynamics
The University of Sydney
ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function
Closing date: 23rd November 2014
School of Physics
Applications are sought for up to five Postdoctoral Research Associates (Level A) in the School of Physics and the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function (CIBF).
This is an opportunity to work in the Brain Dynamics Group of Professor Peter Robinson on projects in the area of his Laureate Fellowship on the Physical Brain and/or research in the area of the CIBF. His group also participates in the Cooperative Research Center for Alertness, Safety, and Productivity, and the NHMRC-funded Center for Research Excellence, Neurosleep, and has wide collaborations across the University, Australia, and internationally.
The successful applicants will form a team to work on a wide variety of theoretical and computational topics in multi-scale, emergent, nonlinear, and critical phenomena in the brain, starting from a physical perspective, with particular focus on dynamics of brain activity modes and networks. Key applications will be pursued under the laureate program that involve vision, seizures, imaging, and network evolution; others will be in the CIBF's focal areas of attention, prediction, and decision. You will also be expected to collaborate with interdisciplinary teams of theoreticians and experimentalists to advance these projects.
