Junior faculty position at Georgia State University

- 0 Comments

The Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University (GSU) invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor pending budgetary approval. The ideal candidate will establish a research program that synergizes with existing key strengths in the Neuroscience Institute in behavioral neuroscience, computational neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, and neuroplasticity. Preference will be given to researchers with expertise and a publication record using state-of-the art methodologies. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or M.D. in a discipline related to neuroscience and should demonstrate the ability to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and to mentor Ph.D. graduate students. Excellence in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels is also expected. Candidates should have an outstanding record of accomplishment and a strong …

1st International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (June 8-10 2015, Juan les Pins, France)

- 0 Comments

The First International Conference on Mathematical NeuroScience (ICMNS) will be held at the Congress Center in Juan-les-Pins, on the French Riviera on June 8-10, 2015.

The goal of this conference is to bring together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians interested in using mathematical concepts and methods for solving problems posed by neuroscience.

It is motivated by the idea that many outstanding questions concerning the functioning/dysfunctioning of brains at multiple spatial and temporal scales require the use of a wide range of mathematical tools, including, but not restricted to, functional analysis, dynamical systems theory, bifurcation theory, probability and statistics, stochastic calculus, geometry, information theory, and numerical analysis. The conference is also aimed to illustrate that neuroscience is …

International Workshop on Neurodynamics, Castro-Urdiales, Spain, July 14 – 17, 2014.

The aim of this workshop is to present an overview of successful achievements in this rapidly developing collaborative field by putting together different types of applications of nonlinear dynamics (geometrical tools in dynamical systems, numerical methods, computational schemes, dynamical measures, …) to different problems in neuroscience (mononeuronal dynamics, network activity, cognitive problems, …). Registration deadline is 31st March 2014.

3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory

3rd International Conference on Neural Field Theory
University of Reading, June 16 – 18, 2014

Organised by Ingo Bojak, Stephen Coombes, Peter beim Graben, Bashar Hasan, Roland Potthast, Etienne Roesch, Douglas Saddy and Kelly Sloan

Neural Mass Modelling and Neural Field Theory is a growing and very active area of research with important applications in medicine and technology. Activities range from the simulation of neural populations to the analysis of neural field equations, from neural modelling of cognitive and psychological processes to controlling artificial devices. The connection between these models and measurement data, including large-scale data assimilation tasks, is of growing interest to many researchers.

The community includes researchers from medicine, psychology, physics, mathematics and engineering. The International Conferences on Neural Field Theory at the University of Reading contribute to the further development …
