Postdoctoral Positions (RAs)

PhD Studentships

  • We are looking for outstanding PhD applicants with matching research interests who are either self funded or have procured funding from research councils. ** Look for scholarship opportunities/information below **
    Outstanding PhD applicants may apply through the regular university channels and specify interest in working with us (SLMC lab: IPAB group). See funding opportunities.
  • Students interested in computational neuroscience and (even-vaguely) biologically relevant computational projects with us are directed to the Neuroinformatics Doctoral Training (DTC) Program at the University of Edinburgh for possibility of funding. (Please send me your background/CV and proposal within the framework of the DTC agenda and if appropriate, I will be happy to write a support letter -- you still need to get admitted through the regular channel).

  • Strong preparation in continuous mathematics: linear algebra, calculus, optimization in continuous spaces
  • Strong preparation in statistics, machine learning: probability theory, modern statistical regression techniques
