About QIMR Berghofer:

QIMR Berghofer is a world leading medical research institute focussed on Cancer, Infectious Diseases, Mental Health, and Chronic Disorders. Our researchers work closely with scientists, clinicians and other research institutes to translate discoveries into prevention strategies, new diagnostics and better treatments that save lives.

About the team:

The Systems Neuroscience Group is a multidisciplinary team who undertakeinnovative computational modelling and analysis of brain activity in health and disease.

Role Purpose / Responsibilities:

You will contribute to developing and analysing new mathematical models of large-scale brain activity, including biophysical models and networks of non-linear oscillators; simulate computational models on GPUs or highperformance computing clusters, and collaborate in applying these to clinical and neuroscience research; perform innovative analyses of high-dimensional neurophysiological and neuroimaging data; contribute to experimental design and prepare manuscripts for related studies; participate in intra-mural group activities, including presentation at labmeetings and collaboration with other lab members and clinicians.

About you:

The successful applicant will possess the following: PhD in mathematics, physics, bioengineering, computer sciences or related field; demonstrated ability to implement mathematical methods in code; evidence of strong oral and written communication skills; Ideally candidates may also have a published track record in analysis of non-linear dynamical systems, particularly neural mass or neural field models or coupled non-linear oscillators; previous experience with GPU programming or high performance computing clusters; previous experience in neuroscience research; or expertise in time series analysis or signal processing.

What we offer:

  • Salary Packaging
  • Bonus Superannuation
  • State of the art facilities
  • Stimulating work setting focused on cutting edge medical research
  • Supportive/collaborative team environment
