I am looking to hire a postdoc with a focus on machine
learning/Bayesian statistics. We apply these techniques to analyze
neural data and to build models of human behavior in a broad
collaboration with experimental groups. For example, we ask how to
simultaneously record from all neurons in the brain  which
information specific neurons represent , predict which neuroscience
professors will be successful , analyze how neurons interact 
and how people are able to move despite their muscles constantly
In the lab I personally love the intellectual, stimulating, positive
interactions, the strong collaborators, and it helps to be in one of
the truly amazing cities.
The work requires a relatively high level of technical proficiency in
matlab/python and a certain level of mathematics.
If interested: send an email to Konrad Kording.
