Research Associate (Postdoctoral Training Fellowship - Theoretical

Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, UCL, UK


The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit invites applications for a
postdoctoral training fellowship in theoretical neuroscience and
related areas.

The Unit is a world-class centre for theoretical neuroscience and
machine learning.  Neuroscience research focuses on the interpretation
of neural data, population coding, perceptual processing, neural
dynamics, neuromodulation, and learning. The Unit also has significant
interests across a range of areas in machine learning.

For further details of our research please see:

The Unit provides a unique environment in which a critical mass of
theoreticians interact closely with each other and with other
world-class research groups in related departments and research
institutes at UCL, including: the departments of Cognitive, Perceptual
& Brain Sciences, Computer Science, Imaging Neuroscience, Motor
Neuroscience, Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology, Physics and
Statistics; the UCL Ear Institute; the Institutes of Cognitive
Neuroscience, Neurology, and Ophthalmology; and the cross-faculty
Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning.  The Unit's
visitor and seminar programmes enable staff and students to engage
with leading researchers from across the world.

Candidates must have a strong analytical background and demonstrable
interest and expertise in theoretical neuroscience.

Typically, appointments are made within the range GBP 34,296 – GBP
38,251 (including London Allowance). Training fellowships are funded
by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation and are part of a continuing
program of training postdoctoral researchers in the discipline.  The
position is available for an initial period of between one and two
years, and may be renewed to a maximum of three years.  Funding is
specifically for the purpose of training a succession of researchers.
To ensure the intellectual renewal of the unit, training fellows are
not funded beyond a maximum three year period.

Applicants should send in pdf, word, or plain text a CV, a statement
of research interests, and the names and full contact details
(including e-mail addresses) of three referees to:
asstadmin at gatsby.ucl.ac.uk.

Applicants are directed to further particulars about the position
