New Lab Grant

22.01.20 08:08 PM By Dimitris Pinotsis

UK-Canada AI Initiative Grant


We have been awarded a grant to work for the UK- Canada Artificial Intelligence (AI) Initiative. This is a collaboration with colleagues from UCL, Kings, Toronto, Ottawa and McGill that will build computational psychiatry tools using state of the art machine learning algorithms.


Our goal is to come up with new ways to characterize psychiatric state and help schizophrenia patients.


Post Doctoral Position available

 

The Computational Neuroscience and Psychiatry Lab (www.pinotsislab.com) at University of London—City is looking for a Post Doc with a strong background in computational neuroscience and/or EEG neurofeedback.

 

The Lab focuses on developing new algorithms for the analysis of human and animal brain imaging data. These are based on computational models of neural dynamics and state of the art machine learning techniques. Particular emphasis is put on applications in Computational Psychiatry and developing models of brain pathology. Also, the Lab develops brain theories that can explain brain pathology, using theoretical tools from deep neural networks and Bayesian brain theories. The lab also performs EEG recordings and plans to start experiments with EEG neurofeedback.

 

The Post Doc shall conduct research in one or more of these areas. He/she will have the opportunity to shape the details of their project based on their specific interests.He/she will be part of an international group of collaborators UCL, Kings, Toronto, Ottawa and McGill whose aim is to build computational psychiatry tools using state of the art machine learning algorithms.

 

The successful candidate should have a PhD in computational neuroscience, computer science, engineering, physics or related discipline. Expertise in one or more modern scientific computing programming language (Python, Matlab or R) is essential. The candidate should also have familiarity with one or both of: i) the analysis of human and/or animal brain imaging data, and ii) EEG experiments, including EEG neurofeedback.
