Lectureship (comparable to US assistant professor) in Computational
Neuroscience at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.
The University of Edinburgh has announced a number of prestigious 5-year
Chancellor's Fellowships. Subject to satisfactory review after 3 years,
the Fellow will move to a permanent academic post. Appointees can
concentrate initially on research, acquiring full University Lecturer
duties during the Fellowship. These prestigious awards are aimed at
early career individuals of the highest potential who have begun to
establish a reputation for the top quality research at the forefront of
their discipline and who have a commitment to teaching at university
One of the priority areas for Chancellor's Fellowships is Computational
Cognitive Science which comprises Computational Neuroscience.
Computational Neuroscience includes analysis and modelling of brain
processes at all levels of organization with a particular focus on
research which spans across levels. Research areas are broadly defined
as the study of the neural foundations of perception, memory, cognition,
and action and their underlying developmental processes. Research on
these topics is conducted in the Institute for Adaptive and Neural
Computation (ANC, http://anc.ed.ac.uk/) which hosts the Doctoral
Training Centre in Neuroinformatics and Computational Neuroscience
The institute is based in the School of Informatics, one of the world's
top research leaders in computer science/informatics. The University of
Edinburgh is one of the world's top research universities, in one of the
UK's most pleasant cities.
