The recently established Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience 
Tübingen (http://www.bccn-tuebingen.de <http://www.bccn-tuebingen.de/>) 
seeks to appoint a

*W2 group leader position in "Theoretical Neuroscience"*

at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics.

The Bernstein Center in Tuebingen investigates the neural basis of 
perceptual inference and we invite excellent postdoctoral researchers in 
the field of Theoretical Neuroscience who would like to contribute to 
the goals of the center to apply. To ensure full consideration 
application documents should be sent as electronic copy to the 
coordinator of the Bernstein center (mbethge at tuebingen.mpg.de 
<mailto:mbethge at tuebingen.mpg.de>) by July 15.

The total funding for the group is 1.2 Mio Euros and the run time is 6 
years. The group will be located at Max-Planck-Institute for Biological 
Cybernetics. There are no teaching obligations but great opportunities 
to contribute to the lecturing at the newly established graduate school 
for neural information processing 

The Bernstein Center entertains close links to the Werner Reichardt 
Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) in 
Tübingen (http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de 
<http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de/>) and includes two Max Planck 
Institutes, the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, and 
the University. The thriving research community is composed of sixty 
labs with more than 150 postdocs and 300 PhD students. Possibilities 
exist for multiple interactions between neurobiological, psychophysical, 
and theoretical researchers.

Tübingen itself is a beautiful medieval town and home to one of the 
oldest European universities. It boasts a rich cultural community and is 
situated close to the Black Forrest within 2h train or driving distance 
to France, Switzerland and Austria.
