A theory-experiment postdoctoral position is available at the École
Normale Supérieure in Paris, on a collaborative project between the
group of Shihab Shamma & Yves Boubenec and the team of Srdjan Ostojic.
We recently investigated (*) the population-level encoding of target
stimuli in the primary auditory cortex of behaving animals during
discrimination tasks. Following up on this study, we now aim at
investigating the neural bases of auditory flexible categorization in
behaving ferrets by combining computational modeling, data-analysis and
The successful applicant will be based at the Laboratoire de
Neurosciences Cognitives Computationnelles (LNC2), a highly interactive
and dynamic environment situated in central Paris (see
group of Shihab Shamma & Yves Boubenec where the neurophysiological
recordings take place is located next door (https://lsp.dec.ens.fr).
The ideal candidate should be a computational neuroscientist with strong
interest in experimental neuroscience, or the other way round.
Starting dates are flexible. The position is for two years. Candidates
should send a letter of motivation (2 pages max), the contact
information of 2 or more referees and their CVs to boubenec at ens.fr
_BEFORE May 23rd, 2018_.
