Research Assistant at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK has an opening postdoctoral scholar position in life sciences. Applications are welcome before April 25, 2019.

Imperial College London is a science-based institution with the greatest concentration of high-impact research of any major UK university.

1. Biomedical Engineering: Developing devices, techniques and interventions for human health. 2. Biological Engineering: Solving problems related to the life sciences and their applications for health. 3. Biomimetics: Using the structures and functions of living organisms as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines. Environment: The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory is very young and dynamic, and publishes in prestigious journals, such as Nature and Science. It is part of the Department of Bioengineering, which conducts state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research in biomechanics, neuroscience and neurotechnology. The lab is at Imperial College London, the 3rd ranked university in Europe, is in the top 10 worldwide, and is located in the city centre of London. More information can be found at: Research topic: Learning and memory are among the most fascinating topic of neuroscience, yet our understanding of it is only at the beginning. Learning is thought to change the connections between the neurons in the brain, a process called synaptic plasticity. Using mathematical and computational tools, it is possible to model synaptic plasticity across different time scales, which helps understand how different types of memory are formed. The Postdoc candidate will be designing plastic artificial neural networks which are modelling the hippocampal complex.

Requirements: The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory, headed by Dr. Clopath, is looking for a talented Postdoc, working in the field of computational neuroscience. The perfect candidate has a strong mathematical, physical or engineering background, and has done a PhD in the field of computational neuroscience. The ideal candidate has expertise phase-plane analysis, stochastic equations, modelling dopamine and modelling working memory.

This post will be based at the South Kensington Campus. You must have a good undergraduate degree/ MSc in physics, mathematics, engineering (or equivalent) and a PhD in computational neuroscience (or equivalent). You will have previous experience in computational neuroscience.
