degree, in a relevant discipline (Neurophysiology, Computational

Cognitive Neuroscience).

Good Quantitative and Programming skills in Matlab or C/C++ are required.

Good communication and social skills are also important for working with the
members of the laboratory.

The work will be performed at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology
of the University of Roma “La Sapienza” in Rome Italy.
