Department of Computer Science and Centre for Complexity Science, University of Warwick, UK
Fixed Term Contract for 3 years with start date 1 February 2011 (or as soon as possible thereafter)
You will work on a project funded by the BBSRC that aims to investigate the role of calcium dynamics in neuronal computation underlying important brain functions. The project will be led by Dr Y Timofeeva and run in collaboration with experimentalists at Oxford and Cambridge.
Your working environment will be at the Warwick Centre for Complexity Science (http://go.warwick.ac.uk/complexity). You should have a PhD, or equivalent, in applied mathematics/theoretical physics or a related discipline and a strong interest in mathematical and/or computational biology. Programming skills and previous experience of research in theoretical/computational neuroscience or computational biology are highly desirable. Some knowledge of reaction-diffusion systems would be an advantage. For further details see https://secure.admin.warwick.ac.uk/webjobs/jobs/research/job3214.html
Deadline for applications: 20th December 2010
