The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN), Munich
invites applications for a position in networking in Computational
Neuroscience (postdoctoral level).
The applicant’s main task will be to participate in the design and
realization of a web-based plat-form for the exchange of data, models,
algorithms, and tools between different groups working in Computational
Neuroscience at the BCCN. This connecting platform, which should adhere
to OECD standards, will be jointly established together with the other
BCCN centers in Berlin, Freiburg and Göttingen.
The four Bernstein Centers for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) have
been established with the support of the German Federal Ministry of
Education and Research (BMBF). The national initiative aims at achieving
major breakthroughs in understanding brain function by the interac-tion
of experimental and theoretical neuroscience. Further goals are
biomedical and technical applications. Scientific groups from various
disciplines (biology, medicine, psychology, physics, engineering,
informatics) study the neuronal mechanisms underlying brain function by
combining experimental, modeling and mathematical approaches.
The successful candidate with a background in physics, mathematics or
computer science should have experience in web-based database
applications, programming skills, and a strong interest in Computational
Neuroscience. Besides his/her background he/she is expected to have
excellent communication abilities.
Initially the position is limited to two years, extensions possible.
Application deadline is 15 October 2006.
Please submit your application preferably in one single PDF-document,
