A postdoc position in computational neuroscience - Ref. No. 2023/5

A postdoc position is available at the Institute of Computer Science under the supervision of Dr. Helmut Schmidt. The successful candidate will join a diverse team of researchers who work at the interface of neuroimaging and computational neuroscience, and will have the opportunity to work on one or more of the following topics: 1. the development of mathematical models of cortical microcircuits that are both biologically realistic and computationally efficient; 2. the integration of state-of-the-art mean field models of cortical activity into whole-brain network models, with a strong emphasis on realistic long-range axonal signal transmission; 3. the application of such models to neuroimaging data (EEG and fMRI).
