CompNeurosci Lab - Dr Gunnar BLOHM
We are always
looking for brilliant postdocs (external funding will be
me now !
I am constantly recruiting highly
motivated and brilliant Masters (leading to PhD) students as
well as outstanding PhD students who are interested in
computational / behavioural neuroscience (see my
research interests). I'm looking for students who are
enthusiastic, have programming and computational backgrounds
such as degrees in Engineering, Applied Mathematics or
Physics and who are interested in neuroscience from a
computational point of view. Students with Psychology, Life
Science or related backgrounds (with strong programming
skills) are also encouraged to apply. Projects will involve
combinations of theoretical modelling, behavioural testing
of models, patient work and/or brain imaging.
Mathematical techniques used in my lab include (but are not limited to) artificial neural network, spiking networks, dual quaternions (Clifford algebra), advanced imaging analysis methods for EEG/MEG, Bayesian statistics, reinforcement learning and state space modelling. Behavioural experiments use eye, head and arm movements to assess brain function.
My lab is part
of the Centre
for Neuroscience Studies at Queen's University which
is one of the most advanced neuroscience centres in
guaranteed funding of 21,000 CAD per annum for full-time MSc
students and 23,000 CAD per annum for full-time PhD students
that is available from different
sources. Additional funding through Teaching
Assistantships or others may be available but cannot be
I promote inclusiveness and diversity in my
lab and we embrace differences as a richness. In particular, I
would like to encourage women, visible minorities, and people
of any sexual orientation and of any gender
identity/expression to apply.
