The Group for Theoretical Biophysics and Neuroscience at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, is looking for a highly motivated PhD student. The group is headed by Dr. Tobias Reichenbach and has a focus on auditory neuroscience (http://ds9.rockefeller.edu/labheads/hudspeth/TBPN/index.html).
The graduate project will investigate active hydrodynamics and nonlinear wave propagation in the inner ear through theoretical and computational approaches. The three-year project will progress in collaboration with experimental auditory research groups in the U.S. (New York) and Sweden. The starting date is flexible but would ideally be around 01 October, 2013. Further information can be obtained from Tobias Reichenbach (tobias.reichenbach(at)rockefeller.edu).
The Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London is performing internationally-leading, multi-disciplinary research in biomechanics, neurobiology, neurotechnology, and further related areas. More information about the department and about Imperial College can be found online (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering/about and http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/aboutimperial).
Candidates should have a degree in mathematics, physics, or engineering, and a strong interest in working on biological problems. Eligible candidates must be EU nationals. Applicants should send their CV as a pdf file to Tobias Reichenbach (tobias.reichenbach(at)rockefeller.edu).
