Summary of the role
The Department wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to participate in a project combining cutting edge experimental and mathematical modelling techniques to investigate the mechanism by which psychogenic stress impacts on the control of reproductive function in mammals. The successful applicant will develop and analyse data-informed biophysical models of brain circuits in a brain region called the amygdala that is a key upstream regulator of the hypothalamic neuronal networks controlling reproduction in mammals.
The post holder will work on:
• biophysical model development;
• parameter inference;
• experimental data processing and analysis;
• developing the amygdala neuronal circuit and coupling this to the hypothalamic neuronal network model we have developed recently;
• setting-up and managing code and performing analysis.
Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification/experience in applied mathematics, physics, computational neuroscience, or engineering. The successful applicant will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required.
