[FieldTrip] POSTDOCTORAL POSITION ON ANALYSIS AND MODELING OF LFP AND MEG SIGNALS
haiteng.jiang at gmail.com
Thu Mar 27 08:30:59 CET 2014
The Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience at Maastricht University offers
a 21-month postdoc focused on the analysis and computational modeling of
Local Field Potentials (LFPs) measured invasively in monkey cortex, and
Magneto-Encephalo-Graphy (MEG) data measured in human cortex. Please feel
free to distribute it.
*PROJECT:* Existing human MEG data as well as rhesus monkey spiking, LFP
and ECoG data have been collected in V1 during grating contrast
modulations. The project is focused on analyzing and modeling the spectral
responses in the different existing datasets, and to build detailed neural
network models at the level of columns and layers, as well as transfer
models to test which aspects of network models in monkey can be generalized
to the human.
*CANDIDATE: *The ideal candidate would have a strong background in
mathematics, physics, computer science, and/or neuroscience, or related
backgrounds, and a strong interest in the analysis and modeling of
oscillatory signals. Expertise is expected with the modeling of single
neurons, ING/PING or Izhikevich-type networks, and related approaches.
*PLACE OF PROJECT:* The project will be carried out in Nijmegen, on the
campus of the Radboud University.
*FUNDING:* The funding is provided through a grant awarded by the Human
Brain Project. The postdoctoral position is for 21 months. Salary and
benefits are according to Dutch standards and according to experience.
*WE OFFER:* We offer a highly multidisciplinary, international and
stimulating environment. The project is relevant and prestigious, and will
be performed in an intense collaboration with Nicosia University, our
partner on the HBP award.
*HOW TO APPLY:* To apply, please send a CV including the names of two
references, and a brief motivation statement to Prof. Peter De Weerd
p.deweerd at maastrichtuniversity.nl. We aim to fill the position within the
month of April.
