To anyone looking for a PhD position,

Applications are sought for a fully-funded PhD position to work with Dr Simon Hanslmayr (University of Birmingham, School of Psychology, http://www.memorybham.com/people/#/simon-hanslmayr/). The project is focussed on generating computational models to simulate single-neuron responses and neural oscillations in the service of memory processes. The work will build on a theoretical framework, termed the Synch/deSync Model<https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4819444/> which assumes that memory processes are implemented via cortical desynchronization and hippocampal synchronization processes (see Parish et al., 2018<http://www.jneurosci.org/content/38/14/3428.long>). The PhD student will have the opportunity to work with single-unit and EEG data recorded from the human hippocampus in patients suffering from epilepsy. The candidate should have a strong background in computational neuroscience or related area. Apply for this post by sending an email with your CV and a short description (100 words) outlining your skills and motivation to Sophie Watson (Sophie Watson S.Watson.2 at bham.ac.uk<mailto:S.Watson.2 at bham.ac.uk>).
