Master position  in computational neuroscience at INRIA

We are seeking an undergraduate student interested in doing a Master 
thesis, possibly followed by a funded Ph.D. in our group Biovision at 
INRIA Sophia Antipolis <http://www.inria.fr/en/centre/sophia> lead by 
Dr. Bruno Cessac.
The detailed proposition can be found here 

In collaboration with experimentalists our group studies how the visual 
system encodes information about external word. We propose biophysical 
models, we develop methods coming from theoretical physics and 
mathematics  to analyse them, and  we design software inspired from the 
visual system to mimic its behaviour and to analyse experimental data.

Successful applicants should have a strong background in computer 
science. Physics, mathematics or life science majors with strong skills 
in computer science (especially C/C++), 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. 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.

Unfortunately our source of fundings only covers members of the European 

Prospective students should apply by sending an email to which includes
* a letter of motivation,
* CV,
* and a copy of the current academic transcripts

to be sent to bruno.cessac at inria.fr

Looking forward to your applications!

Bruno Cessac
