Call for applications: Doctoral Program "Sensory Computation in Neural

The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin and the
TU Berlin invite applications for *4 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 computation, focusing on time and dynamics, and apply these in
experiments by combining techniques and concepts from computational
neuroscience, cognitive science, machine learning, and system

The training group offers a structured supervision complemented by
teaching a training program. 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 leading 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.

Application deadline is March 15, 2011.
Successful candidates will be invited for lab visits and an interview,
expected to take place in June 2011. Courses will start in
October/November 2011.

The fellowships of approximately 1500 €/month (with additional children
allowances if applicable) will be granted for up to three years.
