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 
phenomena.

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,
* CV,
* 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!
