Dear computational neuroscientists,
find below an advert for two post-doc positions at the interface between
experimental and computational neuroscience.
Best wishes, Stefan Kiebel
Two Post-doc Positions
We are seeking two highly motivated and talented post-docs to work in
the group ‘Modelling of dynamic perception and action’
(http://www.cbs.,pg.de/depts/n-3/dyn) at the Max Planck Institute for
Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI-CBS), in Leipzig, Germany.
The goal of the group is to develop and experimentally test theoretical
models for brain mechanisms of human perception and action. Current
projects focus on the question how one can explain the speed and
robustness of human action perception, action and decision making using
dynamic systems theory and Bayesian recognition. An emphasis will be
placed on linking theoretical models to experimental findings using
neuroimaging and behavioural data. The candidates will be encouraged to
actively contribute with their own ideas and proposals.
The research will be conducted at the MPI-CBS in Leipzig, Germany, an
internationally leading centre for cognitive and imaging neuroscience.
For theoretical work, the institute is equipped with high-performance
computing facilities. For experimental work, the institute is equipped
with a 7.0 T MRI scanner, two 3.0 MRI scanners, a 306 channels MEG
system, a TMS and several EEG systems. All facilities are supported by
experienced physics and IT staff.
The projects are partly in collaboration with the Mind and Brain School
in Berlin, Germany, and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging in
The candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in neuroscience,
psychology, physics, or a related field. Essential skills comprise
matlab programming and experience in some aspect of computational or
Starting date for all positions is flexible. Salary is dependent on
experience and based on MPI stipends or equivalent salary according to
German Public service regulations.
The MPI-CBS is an equal opportunity employers, committed to the
advancement of individuals without regard to ethnicity, religion,
gender, age or disability.
Interested candidates are encouraged to get in touch at their earliest
convenience. Applications are considered until the positions are filled.
