KTH is the largest technical university in Sweden. Education and research cover a broad spectrum within natural sciences and engineering, as well as architecture, industrial engineering and management, urban planning, work science and environmental engineering. KTH has 13.344 full-time equivalent students of whom 6.955 at Bachelor (first) level and 5.545 at Master (second) level. In addition 1.314 full-time equivalent students at doctoral studies (third) level and 3.900 employees.
CSC is one of Sweden’s most advanced and successful research and education institutions in Information Technology situated at KTH and Stockholm University. The activities of the school focus on higher education and research within the traditional core areas of numerical analysis and computer science; from theory building and analysis of mathematical models to algorithm construction, implementation and simulation. Other core areas of growing importance are technology and methods for the support of human communication and computer mediated cooperation over distances in time and space. The applied research includes scientific computing, computer science, computer vision, robotics, neuroinformatics and neural networks, human-computer interaction, media technology and graphic arts, and communication through speech, language and music.

KTH School of Computer Science and Communication (CSC) announces a postdoctoral position in neuroinformatics in collaboration with Stockholm Brain Institute (SBI) and international partners
The Department of Computational Biology (CB) at CSC and Nada conducts research in the areas of computational neuroscience, neuroinformatics, neurocomputing, systems biology, bioinformatics and biological physics. The computational neuroscience research is specialized in modelling and simulation of the neuronal networks of the brain as well as brain-inspired computational architectures and algorithms. The methodological approaches span multiple scales, from simulation of subcellular signaling pathways to biophysically detailed or abstract modelling of large-scale neuronal networks. The group is partner of SBI and manages its computational and modelling platform.
Stockholm Brain Institute (SBI) is a brain research consortium in Stockholm with a focus on cognitive and computational neuroscience that joins research groups from Karolinska institutet, KTH, and Stockholm University.
CB currently has an opening for a postdoctoral position at Stockholm University in neuroinformatics aimed at development and use of advanced computational tools for analysis of multidimensional data produced by computational brain models. A focus is on parallel computing in a Linux environment using available high-end cluster supercomputers. The position is partly connected to SBI. Co-supervising of PhD students may take place.
Form of employment: Time limited for two years.
Start date: According to agreement
The ideal candidate has a PhD in computer science – mathematics – physics with a profile towards software, algorithms, computational science, machine learning and time series analysis. Theoretical background in multivariate data analysis and information theory with experience in developing methods for quantifying brain and/or brain model-generated data is an advantage. A strong interest in brain research as well as good collaborative and communicative skills and experience in supervising doctoral students is necessary.
