The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM) at the Jülich Research Center in Germany investigates the structure and function of the brain. The subinstitute INM-6 consists of 4 departments and 1 team that conduct research in the field of computational and systems neuroscience. The Statistical Neuroscience department headed by Prof. Sonja Grün develops computational methods to analyze the joint activity of neuronal networks, and applies these methods to experimental data in the context of international collaborations using state-of-the-art approaches from neuroinformatics.

For this project the Statistical Neuroscience group is seeking a
