PhD position on uncertainty quantification for large-scale brain dynamics

The Department of Mathematics of Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam welcomes applications for a fully-funded, 4-year PhD student position in Computational Mathematics.

In this project you will work on uncertainty quantification for large-scale brain dynamics under the supervision of Daniele Avitabile. The project lies at the intersection between mathematical neuroscience and computational mathematics.

We will study and implement methods for spatio-temporal patterns in a novel class of neural field models, which are relevant to understand epileptic seizures, visual hallucinations and short-term working memory. You will be based in the Department of Mathematics at VU Amsterdam, and collaborate closely with Gabriel Lord, at Radboud University.

The application deadline is the 19th of April 2020, and the starting date is the 1st of September 2020, or earlier.

Applications should be sent here, where you can also read further details on the advertised position
