The project involves a combination of computing, mathematical modeling, and interpretation of clinical data.
The computing component will be to adapt a novel algorithm to a parallel computing cluster.
The modeling will involve the development of a full morphology model from the basal ganglia region which is able to reproduce periodic cycles associated with Parkinsons disease, and to develop a model for a neurostimulator.
The applicant will work with a dynamic interdisciplinary team consisting of an applied mathematician, physiologist, and a neurosurgeon.
Programming experience is a must, but prior experience in parallel computing is not required.
The position is available to start now, actual start date is negotiable.
