Position: Research Associate
Institution: University of Sheffield
Location: Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Duties: The project aims to investigate the origins of the structure of somatosensory cortical representations using computational techniques. A specific focus will be cortical magnification, which is a central feature of cortical maps, such as the well-known somatosensory homunculus. Despite a long history of empirical study in neuroscience and psychology, the main drivers behind cortical magnification are ill-understood and computational models of its origin are currently lacking
Requirements: The ideal candidate will have a PhD in computational neuroscience and experience with computational and mathematical models of map development and somatosensory representations
