A postdoctoral position is available at the Bernstein Center for
Computational Neuroscience Munich (www.bccn-munich.de), for a research
project at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet Munich in a collaboration
of the laboratories of Thomas Wachtler and Tim Gollisch. The research
will involve a combination of computational modeling of early visual
processing and experimental recordings of neural activity in the
vertebrate retina, to investigate signal processing in the visual
system and its role in the learning of invariant representations.

The position is available immediately and is for two years initially,
with possibility of extension. Salary is according to German salary
scale TVL-13. Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in neuroscience,
physics, computer science or a related field. Experience with
computational modeling and/or electrophysiology is required, as
well as a strong interest in combining these approaches.

Applications including CV, letter of motivation, and names of referees,
should be sent to Thomas Wachtler <wachtler at bio.lmu.de>.
