Job description

The Department of Mathematics at KTH is offering a two-year post-doctoral position in Topological Data Analysis within the collaborative project dBRAIN. This postdoctoral position aims at conducting research in mathematics related to topological data analysis with a focus on applications to neuroscience, including modeling and analysis of neuronal activity and brain imaging. The research will be conducted under the supervision of W. Chacholski, and M. Scolamiero within the TDA group at KTH and close collaboration with partners from dBRAIN.

dBRAIN is an interdisciplinary initiative to better understand neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. We combine brain imaging, machine learning, topological data analysis and computational modelling of biological neuronal networks at multiple scales to identify causal links among disease biomarkers and disease symptoms. This understanding should improve diagnosis, prediction of the disease progression and suggest better therapies. More information about dBRAIN.

The position is financed by Digital Futures.
