About the Brain Modelling Group:

The Brain Modelling Group models and analyses brain structure and dynamics, in health and disease.

Role Purpose / Responsibilities:

The successful applicant will develop novel models of large-scale brain dynamics, and use these to model brain activity across the adult lifespan. This will entail: (i) mathematical and computational modelling of brain dynamics at the whole-brain level; (ii) constraining models against empirical neuroimaging data, both structural and functional; and (iii) developing novel analysis tools and implementing them for wide adoption.

About you:

The successful applicant will have:

  • A PhD in physics, mathematics, computational neuroscience, computer science, or a related field;
  • A strong track record of high-quality peer-reviewed publications;
  • Experience in mathematical modelling;
  • Proficiency in programming (e.g. in MATLAB).

They will ideally also have experience in: the pre-processing and analysis of neuroimaging data, including diffusion imaging and tractography, fMRI, MEG, and/or EEG; modelling large-scale brain network dynamics; time series analysis and signal processing; and handling of large datasets.

Please ensure your application addresses both the role and personal requirements found above
