About the Project
PhD post in collaboration with Dr Joel Tabak-Sznajder and Prof. Roman Borisyuk (University of Exeter):
This interdisciplinary project will combine electrophysiology with modelling of neuronal networks. The successful candidate will characterise the electrical properties and recurrent synaptic connections of the neurons responsible for the delays to motor decision-making. They will then use this information to build mathematical models of the decision-making network to understand what causes these delays.
The prospective PhD student will be based at Medway School of Pharmacy (Kent), but will be expected to spend considerable amount of time at University of Exeter in order to benefit from close supervision by Dr Tabak-Sznajder and Prof Borisyuk. We are looking for a candidate with strong computational background. We will provide extensive training in neurobiological techniques.
Entry requirements:Ideal candidates will have a strong background and interest in Neuroscience/Neurobiology. Applicants should have or expect to obtain a Masters degree and/or a first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in Computational Neuroscience or a closely related subject.
How to Apply:To apply please go to https://msp.ac.uk/postgraduate/?course_id=785&course_level=postgraduate
You will need to apply through the online application form on the main University website. Please note that you will be expected to provide personal details, education and employment history and supporting documentation (curriculum vitae, transcript of results, two academic references). You are not required to submit a research proposal.
Applicants must have access to funding to cover tuition fees, living costs and any related project costs (i.e. bench fees).
