The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) and the 
Technical University of Berlin invite applications for several

                           fellowships (3 yrs.)

within its new

                         Research Training Group
            "Sensory Computation in Neural Systems" (GRK 1589/1).

Doctoral candidates will develop computational methods for the study of
sensory computations, focusing on time and dynamics, and apply these in
experiments. To this end, the training group brings machine learning and
engineering together with neural and cognitive modeling as well as
experimental approaches. Each student will be supervised by two
investigators with complementary expertise and will be associated with
the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin,
http://www.bccn-berlin.de/, a well-known research center dedicated to
the theoretical study of neural processing.

Candidates are expected to hold a Masters degree (or equivalent) in a
relevant subject (e.g., neuroscience, cognitive science, computer
science, physics, etc.) and have the required advanced mathematical
background. The deadline for application is March 15, 2010. Successful
applicants will be invited for a short presentation and an interview,
expected to take place in April 2010.

The fellowships of approximately 1500 EUR / month will be granted for up
to three years.

procedure, see http://www.bccn-berlin.de/Jobs/job/?contentId=2284 or
