Position Description:    

Postdoctoral and graduate research positions are available in the Department of Mathematics at Western University (London, ON) and the Fields Lab for Network Science (Fields Institute, Toronto, ON). These positions will be supervised by Lyle Muller and involve collaborations with advanced methods of brain imaging (Mark Schnitzer, Stanford), neuroengineering (Duygu Kuzum, UCSD), theoretical neuroscience (Todd Coleman, Stanford), and neurophysiology of visual perception (John Reynolds, Salk Institute for Biological Studies). In collaboration with this multi-disciplinary team, researchers will bring together data science, computational science, and applied mathematics to understand spatiotemporal dynamics and computation in the circuits of neocortex. The project may include intermittent travel between labs to present results and facilitate collaborative work.

Prior experience with scientific computing, signal analysis, or applied mathematics is preferred. Western and Fields offer excellent research environments and support. Candidates can write to with a CV and short statement of interest.

Please visit the Muller lab website for additional research details.

Both the Lab and Western University are deeply committed to diversity and scientific outreach. Applications from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged, and any interested applicants are welcomed to write Dr. Muller directly with questions about the research environment.

The Fields Institute is a centre for mathematical research activity - a place where mathematicians from Canada and abroad, from academia, business, industry and financial institutions, can come together to carry out research and formulate problems of mutual interest. Our mission is to provide a supportive and stimulating environment for mathematics innovation and education. Learn more about us.
