[Comp-neuro] Post-Doc position at the BCCN Berlin

Applications are invited for a 2.5-years 
post-doctoral position in the group of 
Prof. Lindner (Theory of Complex Systems 
and Neurophysics) at the Bernstein Center 
for Computational Neuroscience Berlin  
starting in June, 2013.

The focus of the theoretical project is on 
the spreading of activity and the signal 
transmission in recurrent  networks of 
spiking neurons. This is motivated by 
reverse physiology experiments at the BCCN 
Berlin, in which evoked single-neuron 
activity in the cortex causes behavioral 
or motor responses.  Ideally, theoretical 
insights will be instrumental for the 
interpretation of experimental data and 
the formulation of novel experimental 

In order to pursue this kind of research, 
the successful candidate should have a 
strong interest in developing analytical 
approaches for the stochastic dynamics of 
single neurons and neural networks. A 
background  in theoretical physics, 
nonlinear dynamics, and/or the theory of 
stochastic processes is thus advantageous 
although not obligatory. The position will 
also entail a moderate amount of teaching 
as well as the co-supervision of PhD and 
Master students.

Applications, including a motivation 
letter, a CV, and, a list of three 
potential referees should be send by email to
