CompNeurosci Lab - Dr Gunnar BLOHM
We are always
looking for brilliant postdocs (external funding might be
me now !
I am constantly recruiting Masters
(leading to PhD) students as well as 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 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 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
Students are 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 guaranteed.If you are interested and/or have any questions, please email me.
