The Institute of Mathematics in Aberdeen is now advertising a postdoctoral position funded by an EPSRC grant obtained by myself. The project which is entitled “Topological Analysis of Neural Systems” already employs two postdoctoral fellows and is expected to grow further in the near future with funding from other sources. It is a collaborative and interdisciplinary project by its very nature, and aims to apply the powerful tools of algebraic topology to questions in neuroscience. A summary of the project can be found on the EPSRC website. A large part of the project will be carried out in collaboration with the Blue Brain Project at EPFL, led by neuroscientist Henry Markram, and the Laboratory for Topology and Neuroscience led by Kathryn Hess.

The post in Aberdeen is funded for 12 months, and will include a generous travel and equipment budget. Work on this project will involve both theoretical and applied topology. Start date could be anytime between January and September 2019, 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 now formally advertised on
