Post Doc/Group Leader Position for Cognitive Computational Neuroscience

A postdoctoral / group leader position is available at the Technical  
University of Chemnitz (Germany) in the Department of Computer  
Science. The position is initially for three years, starting in  
October 2009 (or soon thereafter), but with a possibility of renewing.

The canditate should have a PhD and prior experience in developing  
neurocomputational systems, particularly with respect to data in the  
neurosciences and psychology. Experience in interdisciplinary projects  
or own experimental studies is welcome. A background in parallel  
computing or virtual reality is beneficial but not required.

The position requires teaching students in computer science in the  
area of artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational  
neuroscience and image processing but the major focus is on research.
The envisaged research focus should be on the development of  
neurocomputational models closely linked to the neurosciences and/or  
the application of neurocomputational principles for cognitive systems  
in the area of object recognition, visual attention, visual masking,  
space perception, emotions, neural learning rules, cognitive control,  
decision making, reward-based learning (dopamine, basal ganglia),  
grasping, or eye movements. Additionally planned own experimental  
studies will be supported. It is expected that the candidate applies  
for research grants to expand the research group.

We offer excellent research support for the development of  
neurocomputational systems in form of research seminars, parallel  
computing hardware, virtual reality setups, and eye tracking. In  
addition, we have many contacts to multiple experimental groups in  
Germany and participate in various international collaborations.

The salary is according to German standards (E 13 TV-L or A13h). The  
university is an equal opportunity employer. Women are encouraged to  
apply. Disabled applicants will receive priority in case they have  
equal qualifications.

Chemnitz is the third-largest city of the state of Saxony and close to  
scenic mountains. Major cities nearby are Leipzig and Dresden with a  
rich tradition of music and culture.

Applications should be sent by email (preferebly in PDF format) to  
Fred Hamker (fred.hamker at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de) before July 5th,  
2009, but later applications will be considered until the position is
