Postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience in Paris

A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available in 
Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, from October 2012, to work on 
spike-based computation in the auditory system with Romain Brette 
(http://audition.ens.fr/brette/) in the Audition lab 
(http://lpp.psycho.univ-paris5.fr/hearing.php). The position is funded 
by the European Research Council (Starting Grant). The starting date can 
be discussed.

We try to develop neuron models of auditory functions such as sound 
localization and pitch perception, with an emphasis on spike-based 
computation. Our approach is primarily theoretical/computational, but we 
also validate our models with psychophysical experiments and 
electrophysiology (in vivo and in vitro, through collaborations). Some 
details are available on this page: 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): models of pitch 
perception (in a broad sense, including intonation), sound localization 
(including ILD processing) and plasticity in functional spike-based 
models (including theoretical work).

The lab is a friendly mixture of modelers and experimental 
psychologists. It is ideally located in central Paris, in the Quartier 
Latin, in close proximity with theoretical neuroscientists, 
psychologists and neurophysiologists.

The position is funded for two years with possible extensions. Salary is 
commensurate with experience and the position carries a full social 
security and health coverage. Candidates should send their applications 
(including a brief letter of interest, a CV and the names and contact 
details of two or three references) to romain.brette at ens.fr. Please do 
not hesitate to contact me for further details on the specific projects. 
I might also consider non-auditory projects around spike-based 
computation, and single neuron modeling.
