The Neuroinformatics Research Group (Prof. Dr. Gordon Pipa) of the Institute
of Cognitive Science invites applications for a Research Assistant (Postdoc
level),  (Salary level E 13 TV-L)  to be filled by July 1, 2014 for a period
of three years. The position allows for further scientific qualification. 

Description of Responsibilities: 
The position involves research on complex neuronal networks and the analysis
of data generated by such systems. The research will develop tools and apply
these on the estimation of complex and causal interactions between neurons
and larger areas of the brain, based on various measurements, such as
spiking activity, LFP and ECoG. The successful candidate will be involved in
several research projects that range from BSc to PhD projects. The position
also involves teaching Cognitive Science courses at B.Sc. and M.Sc. level (4
hours/week). 

Required Qualifications: 
Candidates are expected to have an excellent academic degree (PhD and
Master/diploma). Applicants should have an excellent knowledge in the field
of machine learning, i.e. generalized linear and state space models, kernel
methods, reservoir computing and deep learning. Experience or a strong
interest in the fields of complex systems, computational neurosciences,
dynamical systems theory and the concepts to study these, i.e. bifurcation
and stability analysis, and delay coupled differential equations,
measurements of complexity, are encouraged. 

The position may be held full or part-time. As a certified family-friendly
institution, Osnabrück University is committed to furthering the
compatibility between work/studies and family life. 
Furthermore, qualified applicants with disabilities will be favored. 

Applications with the usual documentation, including two letters of
recommendation (hardcopies which will not be returned) should be submitted
no later than June 4, 2014 to the Director of the Institute of Cognitive
Science, University of Osnabrueck, Albrechtstraße 28, 49076 Osnabrueck. An
electronic copy of your application should be sent to
gpipa at uni-osnabrueck.de. Further information can be provided by Prof. Dr.
Gordon Pipa, (gpipa at uni-osnabrueck.de).
