Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work with me and Rafal Bogacz
on a very interesting dataset we have recently acquired. There is a
possibility to be based either at the FIL in London (
https://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/) or BNDU in Oxford (
https://www.mrcbndu.ox.ac.uk/). Please see  https://tinyurl.com/y7aj836m
 for details. Feel free to contact me ([log in to unmask]) or Rafal (

Best,

Vladimir

Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Neuroscience - Data Analysis
Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, John Radcliffe Hospital,
Headington, Oxford
Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

An exciting opportunity has become available at the MRC Brain Network
Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford (BNDU) for a Postdoctoral
Researcher in Computational Neuroscience.

The successful applicant will investigate how the brain controls the
trade-off between speed and accuracy of decisions. The goal of the proposed
project is to analyse a rich dataset recorded from patients with
Parkinson’s disease and control participants while they made decisions
based on noisy and gradually presented information. During this experiment,
local field potentials were recorded from the subthalamic nucleus of the
patients via deep brain stimulation electrodes, and the cortical activity
was recorded using MEG. The project will be co-supervised by Rafal Bogacz
from Oxford, who has an expertise in computational models of decision
making, and Vladimir Litvak from UCL, who is an expert in analysis of local
field potentials and MEG data. We are happy for the postholder to be based
either in Oxford or in London.

Candidates should have a promising track record in original research in
their particular field. Candidates are expected to have advanced technical
expertise in neurophysiological or behavioural data analysis and general
expertise in computational neuroscience. They also need to be highly
proficient in Matlab programming. They should provide evidence of designing
and completing high quality research as part of a cohesive programme.

The successful applicant will possess PhD or equivalent qualification in a
relevant area (e.g. computer science, neuroscience, engineering,
mathematics, physics, psychology), have expertise in mathematical modelling
and data analysis and proficiency in programming.

The post is full-time for a fixed-term of 1 year in the first instance
starting April 2019.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Friday 26 October 2018
will be considered. It is anticipated Interviews will be held soon after
the closing date.
