Postdoctoral Training Fellowship Positions

Theoretical Neuroscience

Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit

The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit invites applications for
postdoctoral fellowship positions in theoretical neuroscience and
related areas.

The Gatsby Unit is a world-class centre for theoretical neuroscience
and machine learning, focusing on the interpretation of neural data,
population coding, perceptual processing, neural dynamics,
neuromodulation, and learning. The Unit also has significant interests
across a range of areas in machine learning.

For further details of our research please see:

The Unit provides a unique environment in which a critical mass of
theoreticians interact closely with each other and with other
world-class research groups in related departments at University
College London, including Anatomy, Computer Science, Functional
Imaging, Physics, Physiology, Psychology, Neurology, Ophthalmology,
and Statistics, and the new cross-faculty Centre for Computational
Statistics and Machine Learning.

The Unit's visitor and seminar programmes enable staff and students to
engage with leading researchers from across the world.  

Candidates must have a strong analytical background and demonstrable
interest and expertise in theoretical neuroscience.

Stipends are competitive, based on experience and
achievement. Fellowships are typically offered for two years in the
first instance.

Applicants should send in pdf, plain text or Word format a CV, a
