Human Brain Project post-doc position
Dynamic Causal Modelling for whole brain connectivity inference
The human brain project (www.humanbrainproject.eu) is building a research infrastructure to help advance neuroscience, medicine, and computing. It is one of four FET (Future and Emerging Technology) Flagships, the largest scientific projects ever funded by the European Union. For its last funding period (2020-2023), in addition to the development of a common platform called EBRAINS (ebrains.eu), brain science is being distributed into 3 scientific work packages (WPs).
This postdoc takes place in the project selected by the Open Call “Validation and Inference” of WP1 “The human multiscale brain connectome and its variability – from synapses to large- scale networks and function”. The main objective of this project (led by Dr Andrea Brovelli, INT, Marseille, France) is to develop model-free and model-based inference and validation workflows for causal brain network discovery.
Within this project, the current post-doc position will be to continue developing hypothesis-driven methods for brain connectivity inferences using Dynamic Causal Modelling framework under the supervision of Dr Olivier David (INS, Marseille, France), and in close collaboration with Drs Jean Daunizeau and Nathalie George (ICM, Paris, France).
The main goal of the post-doc is to develop and facilitate the use of Dynamic Causal Modelling for parameter inference of whole brain models used in the context of the Human Brain Project. Methods will be tested on pre-existing MEG and/or SEEG datasets of responses to various cognitive tasks and to electrical cortical stimulations. They will be implemented on the HBP platform (ebrains.eu). Dynamic Causal Modelling will be compared to other model-free and model-based connectivity methods developed within the project.
