A postdoctoral position is available to work on statistical analysis and computational modelling of neural population activity from rodent neocortex. This work is part of a Simons Foundation-funded project that seeks to compare the fidelity and stability of neural coding of sensory stimuli between wild-type mice and Fragile-X Syndrome mouse models.
 
The project is a collaboration between the computational neuroscience group of Cian O’Donnell at University of Bristol, (where the job-holder will be based) and the experimental neuroscience group of Carlos Portera-Cailliau at University of California, Los Angeles (where the job-holder will visit periodically). You will be part of the lively Bristol Computational Neuroscience Unit.
 
You should ideally have a PhD in Computational Neuroscience or Machine Learning/Statistics, but we will also accept applications from candidates with PhDs in related disciplines such as Neuroscience, Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering.
 
This post is offered on a full time, open-ended contract with funding for up to 18 months, to start around April 2018.
 
Informal enquiries can be made to Cian O’Donnell, cian.odonnell@bristol.ac.uk
 
The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
