Starting in autumn 2009, positions for

 	two PhD students and a Postdoc

become available in the Computational Neurophysiology group of Susanne
Schreiber at Humboldt University Berlin (Germany), funded by the Bernstein 
Award 2008.

Research is centered on how computational principles arise from ion 
channel dynamics in neurons, using methods that range from stochastic 
modeling of single neurons to simulation of network dynamics including 
cell-instrinsic properties. We closely cooperate with the experimental 
groups of Dietmar Schmitz at Charite Berlin (basic mechanisms of synaptic
transmission and plasticity) and Bernhard Ronacher at Humboldt
University (processing of auditory signals in grasshoppers). Moreover,
the group is embedded in the Institute for Theoretical Biology and the
Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, offering a
rich environment for scientific interactions in the center of a
vibrant city.

I will attend the Computational Neuroscience meeting in Berlin and am
happy to arrange short informal interviews there.

Candidates should have a strong background in physics, mathematics,
biophysics, or related fields and a pronounced interest in
neurobiological questions.

If interested, please contact me by e-mail and send along the usual
application materials including a CV, a statement of research interests, 
and pdfs of relevant publications (e.g. master thesis or journal 

Best wishes,

Susanne Schreiber
