Position: PhD Scholarship Opportunity

Duties: This project focuses on mathematical modelling of nonlinear dynamics and instabilities in the neonatal brain, with particular attention to the link between the neonatal brain activity and the developing cardiovascular system. This complex system is not well understood at present and there are no suitable models that fully explain the observed data. Therefore, in this work we will use data-based machine learning techniques to infer casual dependence between different parts of the neonatal brain and the developing cardiovascular system, determine the underlying differential equation models, and analyse these differential equations using modern tools from theory of critical transitions (tipping points)
Requirements: Applicants should have a good primary degree (First or Upper Second Class Honours) in an appropriate discipline (e.g. a Mathematics, Physics or Engineering degree with advanced coverage of Mathematics, or other relevant degree). If English is not your first language you will need to satisfy the English language requirement
