Postdoc position: Computational modelling & primate neurophysiology of multi-stable perception

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship with Jochen Braun in Magdeburg, Germany, and in collaboration with Kristine Krug in Oxford, UK.  The research will examine the neural basis of multi-stable perception, by comparing single- and multi-unit recordings from non-human primates with computational models of hierarchical neural dynamics.  Candidates must have a degree in physics (or similar), a Ph.D. in a relevant field (e.g., neuroscience, physiology, physics), and strong quantitative and writing skills.  Experience with single- or multi-unit recordings from behaving vertebrates is highly desirable.  The initial appointment will be for two years with the possibility of renewal.  Cognitive Biology is part of a large and vibrant neuroscience community (www.neuroscience-magdeburg.de/research/professor-jazz).  Magdeburg is a lively university town with a beautiful historical centre around the river Elbe and with convenient transport links to Leipzig and Berlin.  To apply, please send a PDF file with a CV, a statement of research interests, and names of two references to jochen.braun at ovgu.de.
