Dear Computational Neuroscience Community,

 

Please find below our job posting for Postdoc positions at the Bernstein
Center Freiburg (BCF), Germany.

 

Best regards

Birgit Ahrens

 

 

 

Postdoc Position on Structure and Dynamics of Cortical Networks in the
Computational Neuroscience lab of Prof. Stefan Rotter

 

Our goal is to understand the interplay between network topology and spiking
activity dynamics in the neocortex and other parts of the mammalian brain,
and to explore the possibilities and constraints of dynamical brain
function. Our main tools are mathematical/numerical network modeling and
statistical data analysis, often used side by side within the framework of
stochastic point processes and statistical graph theory. In collaboration
with physiologists and anatomists, we seek to develop new perspectives for
the model-based analysis and interpretation of neuronal signals.

We are a young group of researchers from mathematics, physics, computer
science and biology and invite applications to join the lab for a 2-3 year
PostDoc project, and to enter the PostDoc program in Computational
Neuroscience at the Bernstein Center Freiburg.

The Bernstein Center Freiburg performs research in Computational
Neuroscience and Neurotechnology at the University of Freiburg, Germany. The
projects are highly interdisciplinary and span from mathematical-theoretical
approaches on the function and dynamics of neuronal networks over
neuroanatomy and experimentally driven neurophysiology up to the development
of technologies for medical application.

Postdoc position in Non-Clinical Epilepsy Research in the Biomicrotechnology
lab of Prof. Ulrich Egert

 

We are currently offering a Postdoc position (2 years) in the Laboratory for
Biomicrotechnology (http://www.bcf.uni-freiburg.de/people/details/egert) at
the University of Freiburg.

The project investigates mechanisms underlying mesiotemporal lobe epilepsy
from the perspective of the dysfunction of interaction between subnetworks
in the hippocampal formation (Froriep et al. 2012, Epilepsia). We aim to use
targeted stimulation to reduce the circuit's susceptibility for seizures. 

It is essential that you have a background in neuroscience, ideally in
experimental neurophysiology in vivo as well as a PhD degree. You should
further be competent in data analysis and have an affinity for the network
perspective. 

The project is part of the Cluster of Excellence "BrainLinks-BrainTools''
(www.brainlinks.uni-freiburg.de) together with the Bernstein Center Freiburg
(www.bcf.uni-freiburg.de) and will combine neurophysiology, computational
neuroscience and neurotechnology.

Postdoc position in Neurotechnology & Computational Neuroscience in the lab
of Prof. Stefan Rotter

 

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join an international team
of scientists and engineers in the NeuroSeeker project (see
http://www.neuroseeker.eu/). The goal of the project is to develop and apply
new methods and software to improve the yield of novel high-resolution
probes for recording activity from many neurons simultaneously.

Candidates should hold a PhD in physics, applied mathematics, computer
science or biology, with proven experience in software engineering and
user-oriented application programming (C++ and/or Python). Specific
knowledge and scientific publications in the fields of "statistical analysis
of neuronal data" and/or "numerical methods and data structures in the
neurosciences" are a requirement.

Funding is already available, starting date is negotiable.

The Bernstein Center Freiburg concentrates research in Computational
Neuroscience and Neurotechnology at the University of Freiburg, Germany. The
projects are highly interdisciplinary and span from mathematical-theoretical
approaches on the function and dynamics of neuronal networks over
neuroanatomy and experimentally driven neurophysiology up to the development
of technologies for medical application.
