Please notice that a separate advert for a different postdoctoral position in Aberdeen will soon appear as well.
The Institute of Mathematics in Aberdeen is advertising a postdoctoral position funded by a collaboration grant between the Blue Brain Project at EPFL and the University of Aberdeen. The project that is collaborative and interdisciplinary project by its very nature, will be led by myself, and involves research in algebraic topology, interactions with, and applications to neuroscience. A large part of the project will be carried out in collaboration with the Blue Brain Project, led by neuroscientist Henry Markram, and the Laboratory for Topology and Neuroscience led by Kathryn Hess. In the next academic year the project will employ two postdoctoral fellows, and is expected to grow further in the near future with funding from other sources.
The post in Aberdeen is funded for 12 months, with a possibility of extension, and will include a generous travel and equipment budget. Work on this project will involve both theoretical and applied topology. Start date will be 1st September 2020, or later, subject to agreement with the successful candidate.
The position is intended for a person holding a PhD in algebraic topology, applied and computational topology or computer science with a strong interest in studying and applying theoretical and computational tools of algebraic topology to neuroscience, and other relevant subjects. Experience in high level computations and/or applied algebraic topology would be an advantage. Basic training in neuroscience will be available.
The position is currently advertised for internal applicants on https://www.abdnjobs.co.uk/vacancy/research-fellow-415075.html
This advertisement is open to ALL qualified applicants with a closing date of 9/4/2020.
