ESR and ER position in Neuroscience / Neuroinformatics. NIN – KNAW, 
Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
In the framework of the European Union’s Marie Curie network for human 
resources and mobility activity, a new project “NeuroVers-IT” 
investigating Neuro-Cognitive Science and Information Technology has 
been set up. The project aims at collaborative, highly multidisciplinary 
research between 11 European well-known research institutions in the 
areas of neuro-/cognitive sciences / biophysics and robotics / 
information technologies / mathematics. For this project, the 
Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) in Amsterdam is looking for 
an Early-Stage Researcher (holding a Master’s degree entitling him/her 
to pursue a PhD degree) and an Experienced Researcher (holding a PhD 
degree). A good knowledge of spoken and written English is required, in 
combination with experience in neuronal network research, 
neurophysiology and in computational neuroscience / neuroinformatics. 
The project concerns a computational study in Neuro-Dynamics, in 
particular oscillatory activity in cortical circuits complementing 
experimental recordings in acute cortical slices. The work will be 
conducted in close collaboration with the Department of Experimental 
Neurophysiology at the Center for Neurogenomics and Cognitive Research 
(CNCR) of the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. The ESR position has a 
duration of 3 years for the period 1 June 2006 – 1 June 2009. The ER 
position has a duration of 1 year within this period. To be eligible the 
European candidate should not be a Dutch citizen and not have resided in 
the Netherlands for more than 12 months in the past 3 years. For 
information about these positions you may contact Dr. Jaap van Pelt, 
Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience, Meibergdreef 33, 1105 AZ
