We seek to recruit two Research Fellows to work with Professor John Terry o=
n an MRC Programme Grant: =93Brain Networks in Epilepsy: Endophenotypes and=
 Generative Models=94. These posts form part of a large scale research effo=
rt involving collaborators at King=92s College London and the Queensland In=
stitute of Medical Research (Brisbane) and are available from July 1, 2013 =
or a mutually agreeable date thereafter, for an initial period of 3 years. =
You are encouraged to contact Professor Terry via email: J.Terry from exeter.ac.=
uk<mailto:J.Terry from exeter.ac.uk> prior to submitting an application.

The successful applicants will work on a multidisciplinary project involvin=
g the development of mathematical models, network analysis tools and method=
s for fusing models and data. Working closely with clinical scientists at K=
ing=92s College London, developed methods will be applied to clinical data =
(including EEG, fMRI and DTI) collected from a very large sample of patient=
s with epilepsy. These will be used to elucidate the fundamental mechanisms=
 of seizure emergence and to predict treatment outcome.
The successful applicants will have experience in at least one of the follo=
wing areas:

-       - Constructing mathematical models of biological or neural systems;

-        -Analysis of nonlinear and/or stochastic dynamical systems;

-        -Numerical methods for analysing dynamical systems (e.g. bifurcati=
on analysis and numerical continuation)

-        -Analysis of complex networks or graph theory
 Applicants should have a PhD in computational or mathematical biology, com=
plex networks and graph theory, systems biology, computational neuroscience=
, nonlinear dynamical systems or a closely related discipline. It is furthe=
r desirable that the candidate has experience of working in a multidiscipli=
nary environment, ideally interacting with clinicians or experimental neuro=
