Positions at USyd (2x PhD scholarships, 1x B/C Academic staff)

A number of positions are currently available with the Complex Systems Research Group (led by Prof. Mikhail Prokopenko) in the Faculty of Engineering and IT at The University of Sydney:

1. Two PhD scholarships are available to study with Dr. Joseph Lizier in an ARC DECRA funded project. Both projects involve studying the relationship between network structure and dynamics, using information theory, with applications to neural data sets:
a. “Inferring information network structure from dynamics” — http://bit.ly/1SZdnim
b. “Describing network and information processing co-development” — http://bit.ly/24mp8Vq
Please contact Dr. Lizier with any questions. There is some flexibility in the closing date for applications (currently May 22).

2. One (3 year term) Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Complex Systems (Level B/C) is also currently open for applications until May 8 — http://bit.ly/1qpMI1j
Research areas relating to information theory and complex networks theory will be prioritised.
Please contact Prof. Prokopenko or Dr. Lizier with any questions.

TU Dresden (Herr Prof. Dr. Stefan Kiebel) – Applications for a Member of academic staff / PhD student

The Department of Psychology, Institute of General Psychology, Biopsychology and Methods of Psychology, Chair of Neuroimaging (Herr Prof. Dr. Stefan Kiebel) invites applications for a Member of academic staff / PhD student (E 13 TV-L). The main research goal is the development and experimental testing of novel computational models of decision making. The computational models typically employ Bayesian inference and experiments are performed using fMRI and EEG. More information here.

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.
