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
<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.
