Principal investigator to lead the development of Computational Neuroscience at Monash University

We seek to appoint a dynamic and talented principal investigator to lead the development of Computational Neuroscience at Monash University. The successful candidate is expected to have an internationally recognised track record of scientific achievement and demonstrable ability to build a cutting edge multidisciplinary research platform that will transform the landscape of computational neuroscience at Monash, within Australia and internationally.

This appointee will complement and integrate with experimental neuroscience researchers in the new Faculty of Biomedical and Psychological Sciences who work across a wide range of levels including single-unit recordings in non-human primates through to in vivo EEG and functional MRI in humans. These collaborations will leverage existing Monash University research platforms such as Monash Biomedical Imaging and the MASSIVE Supercomputing facility, as well as the newly established ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function to undertake novel, multi-disciplinary research programs.
An excellent remuneration package is available for both the principal investigator and their team.

The Australian Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop

Registration deadline extended until March 30, 2014

ANEW 2014 will bring together the International Neuromorphic Engineering community (INE), and the Australian Association of Computational Neuroscientists and Neuromorphic Engineers (NeuroEng), to discuss some of the key questions in the field.

The event will be held on Friday, 6 June 2014, following IEEE ISCAS, at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, St Kilda. Registration for ANEW 2014 is free, however each participant is required to suggest a discussion topic as part of the registration process. The four topics to discuss at the workshop will be chosen from all suggestions by the organising committee.

Researchers interested in attending the workshop should submit a registration application. The attendees will be selected among these by the organising committee based on research interest overlapping with the conference theme, and to ensure diversity and breadth of participation by individuals and institutions. The total number of attendees is limited to 60.

We hope to see you there.
