This is a Research Associate post in mathematical optimization and is
part of the CARMEN (Code Analysis, Repository, and Modelling for
e-Neuroscience) project.

CARMEN project is an e-Science pilot project which started in October 2006, and is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
The post at Sheffield will focus on developing tools for automated parameter search within the context of building conductance-based neuronal models. This project links to the wider programme of computational neuroscience conducted within the Adaptive Behaviour Research Group (ABRG) and the appointee will become part of a vibrant and successful research team. While a knowledge of neuroscience is not a necessary prerequisite, the successful applicant has the opportunity to engage with a vibrant research culture within the Adaptive Behaviour Research Group (ABRG).
Applicants should have an honours degree (or equivalent experience) in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering or related field, and should have, or be working towards, a PhD preferably in which optimization or parameter search is a key technique. The post is tenable from 1 January 2008, or as soon as possible thereafter, for two years.
