The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin and 
the TU Berlin invite applications for *7 Fellowships* of the 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 

All applications received until November 15, 2010, are assured full 
consideration. Successful candidates will be invited for a short 
presentation and an interview, expected to take place in January 2011. 
Later applications may be considered if places are still available.

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

procedure, see
