Established in 2003, Queensland Brain Institute is world’s leading neuroscience research institutes, is located on the St Lucia campus of UQ. It houses more than 450 students & staffs, including more than 40 groups working across various fields. The organization common key aim is to recognize the basic mechanisms that regulate brain development and function in health and disease. The position is available in the field of Computational Modelling.

The role

Advanced computational tools are required to quantify the dynamics of single molecules from Super-resolution imaging techniques experiments, and computational models are essential to link single molecule dynamics to neuronal functions such as synaptic transmission. The selected applicant will develop new computational tools and models to infer critical biological insights from the super-resolution imaging experiments. The candidate will join the established groups of Professor Geoffrey Goodhill and Professor Frederic Meunier at the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland. He/she will work with an interdisciplinary team of mathematicians, physicists, engineers and experimental neuroscientists. To know more about the groups and its leaders, Professor Geoff Goodhill and Professor Frederic Meunier, please go to the following links:
