Subject: New Book, Fundamentals of Numerical Computation: Julia

Julia is an open-source and fast-growing programming language for
scientific computing that offers clarity and ease of use for beginners
but also speed and power for advanced applications. Fundamentals of
Numerical Computation: Julia Edition by Tobin A Driscoll and Richard
J. Braun provides a complete solution for teaching Julia in the
context of numerical methods. It introduces the mathematics and use of
algorithms for the fundamental problems of numerical computation:
linear algebra, finding roots, approximating data and functions, and
solving differential equations. A clear progression from simple to
more advanced methods allows for use in either a one-semester course
or a two-semester sequence.

Subject: Postdoc Position, Large-Scale Biophysical Modeling of Neurons

The group of Fabrizio Gabbiani at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM,
Dept of Neuroscience) is looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow to work
on the optimization of biophysical models for single neurons. The
project will be carried out in close collaboration with the group of
Jeffrey Magee at BCM (also in the Dept of Neuroscience) and that of
Matthias Heinkenschloss at Rice University (in the Dept of
Computational Applied Mathematics & Operations Research). The goal of
the project is to apply methods derived from large-scale optimization
and optimal control towards the optimization of neuron models having a
large number of electrical compartments. The developed techniques will
be used to fit in vivo and in vitro electrophysiological data from
murine CA1 pyramidal cells to understand the formation of their
associated place fields. In addition, the same techniques will be
applied to fit electrophysiological data from a visual neuron that
detects impending collision in grasshoppers. We are looking for a
highly motivated scholar with the ability to bridge theoretical and
experimental work in neuroscience. The ideal candidate will be
familiar with systems of ordinary differential equations of
Hodgkin-Huxley type used to model neurons. In addition, the applicant
will have experience in computer programing which will be central to
the project's execution. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in
Computational Neuroscience, or a related field such as Electrical
Engineering, Computer Science, Biophysics or Applied Mathematics.

We are committed to training the next generation of interdisciplinary
scientists to tackle complex, multidisciplinary problems. Both BCM and
Rice University support efforts to broaden diversity by fostering the
careers of individuals with unconventional backgrounds. Interested
candidates should email a CV, a statement of research interests and
the contact information of at least two and preferably three
references to Fabrizio Gabbiani (

PhD position with focus on the further development and
transdisciplinary implementation of a model for the dynamic simulation
of landslide processes

This position announced at the Institute of Geography and Regional
Science, University of Graz, Austria, is one of two PhD positions
within the project "MOVEMONT: Moving mountains - Landslides as
geosystem services in Austrian Geoparks", funded by the Austrian
Academy of Sciences over a period of three years. The focus of the
work shall be put on the further development of the r.avaflow
landslide simulation software, for example in regard to enhanced
user-friendliness and numerics, and its applicability to additional
types of processes and their representation in virtual reality
environments. A very important part of the work will consist in inter-
and transdisciplinary action towards the implementation of the
developed concepts for environmental education in the three Austrian
UNESCO Global Geoparks.
