PhD/PostDoc - Computational Cognitive Neuroimaging

Applications are invited for a PhD or PostDoc position in the ‘Cognitive 
Neuroimaging Group’ (http://www.kyb.mpg.de/noppeneygroup/index.html) at 
the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Projects will 
combine fMRI and computational modelling to investigate the neural basis 
of category learning. The position is supervised by Dr Uta Noppeney, in 
collaboration with Prof Peter Dayan (Gatsby Computational Neuroscience 
Unit, UCL) and Prof Bernhard Schölkopf (machine learning department, MPI).

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics provides an 
excellent multi-disciplinary and interactive research environment 
combining expertise in neurophysiology, psychophysics, machine learning 
and development of MRI methodology.

Applicants should combine interest in neuroscience with a strong 
mathematical and analytical background and have a master/diploma or 
equivalent degree in Neuroscience, Physics, Computer Science or related 
areas. The Ph.D./PostDoc position is funded by a MPI stipend.

Applications including a CV, a statement of research interests, and the 
names and full contact details of two referees should be sent to:
