A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available in 
Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris) to work on spike-based computation in 
the auditory system with Romain Brette (http://audition.ens.fr/brette/) 
in the Audition lab (http://lpp.psycho.univ-paris5.fr/hearing.php). The 
position is funded by the European Research Council (Starting Grant). 
Specific subjects include:
* Spike-based models of sound localization (in particular the problem of 
reverberation, in relationship with the precedence effect)
* Spike-based models of pitch perception
* STDP in auditory models (in particular how structure in sounds (e.g. 
periodicity) may be learned)

The lab is a friendly mixture of modelers and experimental 
psychologists. It is ideally located in central Paris, in the Quartier 
Latin, in close proximity with theoretical neuroscientists, 
psychologists and neurophysiologists.

The position is funded for two years with possible extensions. Salary is 
commensurate with experience and the position carries a full social 
security and health coverage. Candidates should send their applications 
(including a brief letter of interest, a CV and the names and contact 
details of two or three references) to Romain Brette (romain.brette at ens.fr).
