*kESI – kernel-based method of electrophysiological source imaging*

The Neuroinformatics Laboratory (https://neuroinflab.wordpress.com/) at 
the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of 
Sciences (NENCKI, www.nencki.gov.pl <http://www.nencki.gov.pl/>), headed 
by Prof. Daniel Wójcik (http://www.neuroinf.pl/Members/danek) invites 
applications for a*postdoctoral position*(36 months starting in March 
2016 or ASAP) that will be available as part of a nationally funded 
project (NCN OPUS).

The goal of the project is to develop and implementa new technique of 
source localization 
<http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2202/16/S1/P286>of specific events in 
neural activity, such as a seizure, from multimodal imaging data, 
including ECoG (strip and grid electrodes), depth electrophysiological 
recordings, and MRI data from humans. The method will be validated with 
ground truth model data and tested on clinical data obtained from 
epilepsy patients. The fellow will build on already existingtools and 
techniques developed in the lab
