The postdoctoral researcher will participate in a project involving data analysis and modeling/simulation of excitable cell activity for applications in neuropsychiatry..
This project focuses on two main aspects in which the candidate will participate :
1) modeling of retinal electrical activity to identify pathophysiological mechanisms. This aspect will be lead in support to a Ph.D; that started in October 2021 ;
2) feasibility study of machine learning analysis of electrocardiograms for diagnosis and prognostics in psychiatry.
- Completing the modeling of retinal cells already done by the team
- evaluating the model capacities with respect to the literature about biological recordings
- Optimizing the models
- Identifying the data potentially available on the considered database
- Writing a short proposal to request access to the database
- Studying tools potentially promising for the data analysis
In addition, the candidate will participate in the redaction of journal articles and conferences related to the tasks at hand..
- proficiency in computational neuroscience modeling (Hodgkin-Huxley based models)
- proficiency in stochastic optimization required
- basic knowledge in neurophysiology and electrophysiology required
- proficiency in Python programming
- Proficiency in French and English (article writing)
- Education: doctorate in mathematics, computer science, computational neuroscience or related fields
- High interest in biomedical applications, in particular neurology and psychiatry
Loria is the French acronym for the “Lorraine Research Laboratory in Computer Science and its Applications” and is a research unit (UMR 7503), common to CNRS, the University of Lorraine and INRIA. This unit was officially created in 1997.
Loria's missions mainly deal with fundamental and applied research in computer sciences. The lab is a member of the Charles Hermite Federation, which groups the four main research labs in Mathematics, in Information and Communication Sciences and in Control and Automation. Bolstered by the 400 people working in the lab, its scientific work is conducted in 28 teams including 15 common teams with INRIA. LORIA is today one of the biggest research labs in Lorraine.
The postdoc will join the Neurorhythms research team (http://neurorhythms.loria.fr/fr/)
