[Comp-neuro] Postdoctoral position in theoretical neuroscience at the Hebrew University

Yoram Burak yoram.burak at elsc.huji.ac.il
Mon Oct 6 17:31:47 CEST 2014

Yoram Burak's research group at the Hebrew University is seeking a highly
motivated postdoctoral research fellow in theoretical neuroscience. The
initial appointment will be for one year, with a possibility of extension.

The group has a broad range of interests in theoretical and computational
neuroscience, including:
-  Dynamics of short term memory in stochastic neural networks.
-  Sequence generation and learning in the brain.
-  Invariant perception in sensory processing.
-  Grid cells in the entorhinal cortex: spatial computation and coding in
the brain.
-  Plasticity in neural networks.

The group is part of the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences
(ELSC), and of the Racah Institute of Physics. Both are located in the
beautiful Safra campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The Hebrew
University is ranked first among Israel's research universities in the
Shanghai ranking of world universities (the ARWU ranking), 70th in the
world, and 47th in the natural sciences.

Research at ELSC offers a vibrant scientific environment and excellent
opportunities for interaction with researchers interested in systems and
computational neuroscience. For more information, see:
http://elsc.huji.ac.il. An international graduate program in computational
neuroscience at ELSC (formerly the ICNC program) is entering its 23rd year
this fall.

Applicants must have an excellent research record in theoretical
neuroscience, theoretical physics, mathematics, or a related field, and a
keen interest in computational neuroscience.

*To apply*: please send a CV and list of publications, a brief statement of
research interests, and the names of three references to
yoram.burak at elsc.huji.ac.il. Please ask your references to send letters of
recommendation to the same email address. For full consideration please
apply by November 15, 2014.
