The Theoretical Neurobiology group (http://www.tnb.ua.ac.be) at the
University of Antwerp, Belgium seeks a researcher specialized in neural
network modeling to work at the Belgian National Neuroinformatics Node of
the INCF (http://www.incf.org). Preference is given to postdocs but
experienced PhD candidates will also be considered.

The researcher will combine modeling of cerebellar networks (supervisor
Prof. E. De Schutter) or cortical networks (supervisor Prof. M. Giugliano)
with the development of an ontology of terms relevant for network models
consisting of spiking neurons. The ontology work contributes to the INCF
Task Force for a Standard Language in Neural Network Modeling. In addition
the researcher will help organizing the Belgian neuroinformatics

Candidates should have experience in integrate-and-fire neural network
modeling and have good English language conversation and writing skills.
Being able to communicate in Dutch is a plus.

The appointment will be for a duration of 2-3 years at the University of
Antwerp, Belgium and involve travel to Task Force meetings. Standard
university salary scale based on highest degree, position is supported by
