Postdoctoral Position in Computational Neuroscience

Applications are sought for a postdoctoral position in computational
neuroscience funded by the European FP7 FET Open project with acronym
“Si-Code” and full title “Towards new Brain-Machine Interfaces:
state-dependent information coding”.

The postdoctoral candidate will be working in the Max Planck Institute for
Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen (Germany), under the supervision of
N.K. Logothetis and O. Eschenko, and will also be involve in collaborations
with the computational laboratory of S. Panzeri, a long term collaborator
of the group.

The project aims at understanding the impact of large scale brain dynamics
to the responses and information processing properties of individual
microcircuits. This aim will require integrating the information at
multiple spatial and temporal scales obtained from the computational
analysis of parallel neurophysiological recordings with multiple-contact
electrodes in several brain areas, of simultaneous electrical stimulation
and fMRI, and of neural-event triggered fMRI.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in numerate sciences
(physics, mathematics, or engineering), with a good knowledge of dynamical
systems and of communication theory, a good knowledge of empirical
neuroscience and a keen interest in applying her/his numerate background to
making major breakthroughs in the understanding of the brain.

The position is available from the beginning of December 2012 up to the end
of February 2015. Payment will be in accordance with German public service
positions (TVöD Bund E13), including extensive social security plans. The
conditions of employment follow the rules of the Max Planck Society for the
Advancement of Sciences and those of the German civil service.

The Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics seeks to increase the
number of female scientists and encourages them to apply. Handicapped
persons with comparable qualifications will receive preferential status.

Interested candidates are encouraged to first approach Stefano Panzeri (
stefano.panzeri at gmail.com) attaching a statement of interest and a CV to
their email. Formal applications, including a statement of interest, a CV
and the name and addresses of two referees, should then be sent to Conchy
Moya [conchy.moya at tuebingen.mpg.de] not later than 04.11.2012.
