A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Social
Neuroscience Team, an innovative collaborative project between groups of
Fred Wolf (Bernstein Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Campus
Institute Dynamics of Biological Networks) and Alex Gail, Igor Kagan and
Stefan Treue (Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, German Primate Center, 
in Goettingen, Germany. The focus of the research is on theoretical 
computational modeling and analysis of behavioral and neurophysiological 
underlying social decision-making in humans and nonhuman primates
(e.g. https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/314500v4). The scientist will
collaborate closely with the experimentalists, who work on elucidating
the neural basis supporting primate interactions in dynamic sensorimotor
settings. Further scientific exhange within the Leibniz ScienceCampus
Primate Cognition (https://www.primate-cognition.eu) will ensure a broad
interdisciplinary framework for networking and cooperation.

Candidates with a Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience, Physics,
Mathematics, Data Science or Engineering, an excellent research record,
and a drive to work independently and collaboratively to solve
conceptual and computational challenges, are encouraged to apply. A
strong quantitative and theoretical skillset is a must, prior experience
in cognitive sciences or neuroscience, and a background in relevant
modeling and analysis of behavioral or neurophysiological data are a
plus. Please send applications (letter of interest, CV and the names and
contact information of two referees), or request for additional
information, to compneuro-postdoc at dpz.eu
