Open Position on the PhD Level

A PhD position is available in a BMBF-funded research project “Impact of
top-down influence on visual processing during free viewing: multi-scale
analysis of multi-area massively parallel recordings of the visual
pathway”. This project is in the framework of Strategic Japanese‐German
Cooperative Research Program on Computational Neuroscience jointly
funded by JST and BMBF. As the German part of the project team, the
group of Prof. Sonja Grün in INM-6 for Computational and Systems
Neuroscience is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate highly motivated to
work on the analysis of massively parallel recordings (spikes and local
field potentials) from monkey visual cortices.

Applicants should primarily have background(s) in computational
neuroscience, physics, mathematics or related areas. Good programming
skills in Python, MATLAB or C/C++ are preferable. The position is open
from April of 2012, and the project will last for 3 years. This project
will be conducted under a tight collaboration with Japanese experimental
and theoretical partners (Prof. Hiroshi Tamura, Osaka Univ.; Prof.
Shigeru Shinomoto, Kyoto Univ.), including annual progress meetings and
associated long-term work stays in Japan (for a month). Applicants
should enjoy this interdisciplinary and international research
environment. The working place will be INM-6 for Computational and
Systems Neuroscience, which is a part of the Institute of Neuroscience
and Medicine (INM) in Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany. The working
language will be English.

The call remains open until the position is filled. If you are
interested please contact s.gruen at fz-juelich.de with your electronic CV,
list of publication (if applicable), letters of reference, research
interests and a statement of motivation.
