Tue Dec 22 10:23:58 CET 2009
we currently have an opening for a PhD position for an intensive 3 years training program at the intersection of Computational Neuroscience, Neuroinformatics, and Systems Biology at the University of Rostock, Germany.
The candidate will receive a full stipend in the graduate school DIEMOSIRIS (http://wwwmosi.informatik.uni-rostock.de/diemosiris), which focuses on regenerative systems in general, and the process of cell differentiation in particular. The goal is to investigate the dynamics of connectivity in large "spiking" networks with synaptic plasticity (using modeling, simulation, and machine learning techniques), how these dynamics can be described at multiple levels of granularity (multi-level modeling), and how to engineer and control such networks in order to optimally interface with differentiating progenitor cells.
The ideal candidate has a strong background in at least one of these fields: applied math, graph theory, statistics, or machine learning. Good programming skills are mandatory.
The University of Rostock (founded 1419) is located at the baltic coast, its computer science and electrical engineering dept is regularity high-ranked in Germany, and it provides an excellent environment to foster the interaction of life science and engineering.
The position is available immediately. Please send your application material via email to lars.schwabe at uni-rostock.de. Application deadline is
22 January 2010.
Please feel free to contact me (lars.schwabe at uni-rostock.de) if you have questions.
Best regards (and merry xmas),
Prof. Dr. Lars Schwabe
Adaptive and Regenerative Software Systems
Dept of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
