OPEN POSITIONS

Multiple graduate and postdoctoral research positions available in our group. Interested candidates are invited to write the PIs involved in each project with a CV to arrange an interview. Western University offers an excellent research environment and support. In particular, our lab and the University are deeply committed to fostering diversity and scientific outreach. Applications from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged, and applicants are welcomed to write directly with any questions about the research environment.

Postdoctoral Scholar in Computational/Theoretical Neuroscience [NeuroNex]

Department of Applied Mathematics
Brain and Mind Institute
Western University

We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral scholar in computational/theoretical neuroscience. This researcher will work with an international NeuroNex consortium studying the genetic, cellular, and network basis of working memory. The project will incorporate analysis of multichannel neural data and computational models ranging from single neurons to spiking neural networks and (un)supervised learning algorithms. The researcher will work within a dynamic team and with data at multiple scales (transcriptomics, intracellular patch clamp, and extracellular spiking data).

PhD position in computational neuroscience and marmoset electrophysiology

Department of Applied Mathematics
Brain and Mind Institute
Western University

A joint PhD position is available in the labs of Julio Martinez-Trujillo (Robarts Research Institute) and Lyle Muller (Applied Mathematics). The scientist will join a developing marmoset electrophysiology program in the Martinez-Trujillo lab, where multichannel arrays will record neural spiking activity at high spatial and temporal resolution during sensory and cognitive tasks. These multimodal experiments will be complemented by computational analyses and models collaboratively developed in the two labs.

PhD position in dynamic-clamp electrophysiology and network modeling

Department of Applied Mathematics
Brain and Mind Institute
Western University

A PhD position is available in the labs of Lyle Muller (Applied Mathematics) and Wataru Inoue (Robarts Research Institute). This scientist will develop a real-time interface between recorded neurons and computational models of these single cells. The scientist will then use these "dynamic clamp" recordings to study how the properties of single cells are shaped by network activity and how network activity is in turn shaped by these properties. Research in this project will involve developing intracellular recording paradigms in conjunction with single neuron and spiking network models.

PhD Positions in Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience

Department of Applied Mathematics
Brain and Mind Institute
Western University

We currently have openings for graduate research positions in computational/theoretical neuroscience in the group of Lyle Muller at the Department of Applied Mathematics and the Brain and Mind Institute of Western University (London, Ontario). Projects will focus on new computer vision algorithms for neural data, network models, and computation with spatiotemporal dynamics in neural systems. Analysis, modeling, and theory will be conducted in close collaboration with experimental colleagues, including multi-site recordings in NHP (John Reynolds, Salk Institute; Julio Martinez-Trujillo, Western) and human clinical intracranial recordings (London Health Sciences Centre). Potential students can apply through the programs in Applied Mathematics or Neuroscience.
