NeuroEng2020 cancelled

Due to COVID, we’ll be skipping our NeuroEng Workshop this year and aiming for a NeuroEng 2021. Let’s hope that things get back to normal soon.

Presently, we are organising a website and mailing list refresh. Back in touch soon with more details.

Postdoctoral position in brain networks modelling

Are you interested in brains, networks, models, Bayes, dynamical systems, and neuroimaging (or some combination of these) and looking for a postdoctoral position? We have a Research Fellow position available in Melbourne at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health.

This position is funded for two years, in the first instance, to work with a team of collaborators at Monash University (Adeel Razi, Lead), University of Melbourne (Andrew Zalesky) and University College London (Karl Friston).

You will be situated within the Computational and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory: www.adeelrazi.org. For further details see below.

Research Fellow Position in Seizure Prediction

We have a Research Fellow opening through a collaboration between the University of Melbourne and Monash University for someone to develop and crowdsource machine learning and data science approaches to solving seizure prediction. Seizure prediction will enable the generation of warnings so a person with epilepsy can move to safety, or activation of electrical stimulation or drug delivery to prevent seizures.

NeuroEng 2019: The 12th Australasian Workshop on Computational Neuroscience and Neural Engineering, November 29-30

NeuroEng 2019 will be hosted at The University of Adelaide (Poster).A 

We look forward to seeing you in Adelaide. Registration is now open at this link (closes 8th November).
Students $280 (ex GST), General $450 (ex GST). Registration includes a Welcome Reception (drinks & platters) and Workshop Dinner. The Reception will be held Thursday evening (November 28th). Dinner will be held at Jolley’s Boathouse (November 29th).

NeuroEng 2019 topics include: Neurophotonics, Theoretical, Mathematical and Computational Neuroscience, Neuroprosthetics and Brain Machine Interfaces, Neural Modelling and Engineering, Neuromorphic Engineering, EEG Analysis, Neural Information Processing, Neuroinformatics, Cognitive Modelling, Neuroimaging and Connectomics, Brain Dynamics and Neurophysics.

Keynote speakers include Professor Barbara Webb (University of Edinburgh) and Professor Yves De Koninck (Univeriste Laval). We also have talks by Prof Andre van Schaik (WSU), Prof David Grayden (Uni Melbourne), Prof Geoff Goodhill (QBI), A/Prof Pulin Gong (Uni Sydney), Prof Mark Jenkinson (Oxford) and many others.

This meeting will be held as a satellite of the Australasian Neuroscience Society (ANS) conference (Dec 2-5), so please consider scheduling your time for both events.
