We are offering one excellence PhD fellowship (3 years)Aix-Marseille University at within the labs of Christophe Bernard (experimental neuroscience) and Viktor Jirsa (theoretical neuroscience) at Institute of Systems Neuroscience – INS, Marseille.
The project has the following objectives: A) Incorporating neuron-glia-blood vessel coupling in the generative models used in The Virtual Brain. B) Constant interplay with partners to improve the model (see below). C) Generating testable predictions to be tested experimentally in the same lab (see below).
This project is part of the EU high-level training-by-research consortium “Astrotech” (http://www.astrotechproject.eu/), federating world-leading european groups working in the development of new technologies to explore astrocyte function in the brain. Becoming PhD within the network will offer unique training and interaction opportunities with other Astrotech members, in addition to the specific research conducted in the host lab.
