Open PhD-position : Complex Dynamical Systems / Cognitive System Theory

   At the Institute for Theoretical Physics,
   University of Frankfurt am Main,

   Field(s): complex systems, cognitive systems,
             neural networks, dynamical system theory

   Application deadline: March 15, 2013

   Supervisor: Prof. Claudius Gros

   E-mail: cgr at itp.uni-frankfurt.de

   Address: Institute for Theoretical Physics,
            Goethe University Frankfurt,

   Job description:
   Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position at the
   Institute for Theoretical Physics, Frankfurt University.

   The general focus of the research group is the development
   of the theory of complex and cognitive systems:
   generating principles, functionality and control.

   The focus of the work will be on models for the self-generated
   brain dynamics including generating functionals and working
   principles for the sensorimotor loop. The work will include
   analytical investigations and numerical simulations of neural
   networks, within the framework of dynamical system theory.

   The candidates should  have a Diploma/Master in physics with
   an excellent academic track record and good computational skills,
   preferable with JAVA or C++. Experience or strong interest in
   the fields of complex systems, dynamical system theory
   and/or artificial or biological cognitive systems is expected.
   The degree of scientific research experience is expected to
   be on the level of a German Diploma/Master.

   The appointments will start summer 2013, for
   up to three years.

   Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae,
   a list of publications and arrange for two letters of
   reference to be sent to the address below.
