Wed Sep 22 04:02:48 CEST 2010
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
