PhD, Master and Postdoc positions in theoretical neuroscience at the Max
Planck Institute for Brain Research
We are looking for undergraduate students interested in writing a Master
or PhD thesis and also have open positions for Postdocs to join our
group "Theory of neural dynamics" at the Max Planck Institute for Brain
Research lead by Dr. Tatjana Tchumatchenko.
Our group studies how networks of neurons encode and decode sensory
stimuli and how these functions are related to computations that
underlie cognitive functions and behavior. We develop models to address
linear and non-linear properties of neuronal networks and have ongoing
collaborations with experimental labs where we analyze in vitro as well
as in vivo data and develop appropriate models to explain the observed
Successful applicants should have a strong background in a quantitative
field such as physics, mathematics or computer science and should be
interested in an interdisciplinary exchange with other disciplines such
as biology or medicine. Life science majors interested in quantitative
modeling work are also encouraged to apply, particularly if they would
like to combine experiments and theory in their Master or Ph.D. thesis
work. We are looking for candidates with strong English skills and prior
programming experience. In order to make teamwork in our group enjoyable
and fun, the ideal candidate should have a strong work ethic and have
demonstrated consistent self-motivation skills.
Female students are particularly encouraged to apply.
Prospective students should apply by sending an email to
theoryneuraldynamics at gmail.com which includes
* a letter of motivation,
* and a copy of the current academic transcripts
To make your motivation letter easier to write for you and more
informative for us, please check the list of questions to be answered in
your motivation letter at
Looking forward to your applications!
