The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, a world-class centre for 
theoretical neuroscience and machine learning, invites applications for 
one or more postdoctoral training fellowships in theoretical neuroscience. 
We are looking especially for someone with an interest and/or background 
in synaptic plasticity and learning. Candidates should have a very strong 
analytical background in physics, mathematics, statistics, or machine 
learning, with an emphasis on the use of Bayesian methods in neuroscience, 
a detailed knowledge and understanding of the literature, and a 
publication record in highly ranked conferences and journals. Candidates 
must also have a PhD in a relevant subject area by the agreed start date 
of the position.

Training fellowships are funded by the Wellcome Trust, and are part of a 
continuing program of training postdoctoral researchers. The position is 
available for an initial period of two years, and may be renewed to a 
maximum of three years.
