Positions for postdoctoral researchers

The recently established Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for
Neuromathematics (NeuroMat), hosted by the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil,
and funded by FAPESP (Sao Paulo Research Foundation,
http://www.fapesp.br/en/), is offering several postdoctoral fellowships for
recent PhDs with outstanding research potential.

We seek candidates fitting at least one of the profiles below:

- A strong background in probability theory with emphasis on stochastic
processes or alternatively in statistics with emphasis on statistical model
selection. Previous knowledge of rigorous statistical mechanics, random
graphs or stochastic modeling in biosciences will be favorably considered.
- A strong background in systems neuroscience, backed by programming
skills, experience of imaging and/or EEG acquisition and analysis and
strong interest in interdisciplinary research.
- A strong background in computer science, interested in developing
algorithms, software tools or databases in close connection with the
several research teams of NeuroMat.

The initial appointment is for two years, with a possible extension to up
to four years, conditional or research progress. Salary is competitive at
international level, and fellows benefit from extra funds for travel and
research expenses plus limited support for relocation expenses.
