POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available in the group of RAVA AZEREDO DA
SILVEIRA at the ECOLE NORMALE SUPERIEURE, Paris
This position will be devoted, in part, to the analysis and modeling
of exciting retina data sets from the labs of Botond Roska (FMI) and
Andreas Hierlemann (ETH). Experience with data analysis and
proficiency with numerical methods and programming, in addition to
familiarity with neuroscience topics and mathematical and statistical
methods, are desirable. In addition, research may be pursued on
problems of single-cell and network dynamics, neural coding, or
cognitive and behavioral modeling (inference, sensory integration,
decision making, etc), with more or less connection with data
depending upon the specific problem. Thus, a spirit of intellectual
adventure and eagerness is at least as desirable.
The ENS, together with a number of neighboring institutions (College
de France, Institut Curie, ESPCI, Universités Paris 5, 6, and 7, and
Institut Pasteur), offers a rich scientific and intellectual
environment, with a strong representation in computational
neuroscience and related fields. Furthermore, as far as cities go,
Paris is not bad.
The postdoctoral salary will be supplemented by travel and equipment funds.
To apply, please send a letter of motivation and statement of
research, a curriculum vitae, a list of publication, and arrange for
three letters of recommendations to be sent, to rava at ens.fr. Reviewing
of the applications with start on 25 November 2013.
