From: Peter Dayan

I recently moved my lab to the Max Planck Institute for Biological
Cybernetics in Tuebingen. I am therefore recruiting one or more postdocs
working in the areas of neural reinforcement learning and computational
psychiatry. I am seeking postdocs working in neuromodulation,
meta-control, neuroimaging and behavioural experiments and analysis, and
all areas of dysfunctional decision-making.

I am going to be attending COSYNE 2019 - so would be very happy to meet
there.

The aim of the MPI for Biological Cybernetics as a whole is to
understand information processing in the brains of humans and
animals. We use experimental, theoretical and computational methods to
elucidate the characteristics and implementations of the cascades of
plastic and recurrent interactions that transform sensory data into
perceptions, memories, appropriate choices of actions, and motor output.
We are richly multidisciplinary, have excellent facilities, and are
building close links with neighbouring Max Planck Institutes and the
University of Tuebingen that cover systems neuroscience, machine
learning, and beyond. The working language of the Institute is English.

Remuneration will depend on experience. The position will be for two
years.

Applications should include a CV, a list of publications, summaries of
scientific achievements and research plans, and the names and contact
details of three referees. Applications should be sent in PDF format to:
kyb-application at tuebingen.mpg.de

My lab, the Institute and the Max Planck Society strive for gender and
diversity equality. We welcome applications from people from all
backgrounds.

Informal inquiries can be addressed to Peter Dayan:
