The Gatsby Program in Theoretical Neuroscience at the Edmond and Lily Safra
Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) is inviting applications for postdoctoral
fellowships from students who are finishing, or have recently finished,
their Ph.D. studies in mathematics, physics, computer science,
computational neuroscience, or related fields. Preference will be given to
postdocs who perform collaborative research mentored jointly by theorists
and experimentalists.  A priority area for the Program is sponsoring
activities that strengthen the ties between this Program and the two
partner centers:  the Gatsby Unit for Computational Neuroscience (UCL,
London) and the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience (Columbia University,
NY). These activities include joint meetings, exchange of students,
postdocs and faculty, and collaborative research.

Research at ELSC offers a vibrant scientific environment and excellent
opportunities for interaction with researchers interested in systems and
computational neuroscience. For additional information, see:

ELSC, see: http://elsc.huji.ac.il/gatsby.

*The Gatsby Fellows Program*

In addition to regular postdoctoral fellowships, the program provides
special fellowships for outstanding junior researchers at their senior
postdoctoral level working on theoretical and computational neuroscience at
the Hebrew University. Fellows are admitted to the Program based on their
credentials and are free to choose their research agenda and their host lab
in the course of their first semester in residence. In addition to upgraded
salaries and housing support, Fellows receive modest research funds aimed
primarily for travel to other labs or conferences.  Fellows are expected to
actively participate in initiatives that strengthen Tri-Center
interactions.

*Applications*

Candidates for postdoctoral fellowships and applicants for the Fellows
Program are invited to send their CV and research statement, and to arrange
for three letters of reference to be sent to Ms. Irit Dagan:
irit.dagan1 at mail.huji.ac.il.
