Prof. Sen Cheng, Institute for Neural Computation at the Ruhr University 
Bochum, invites applications for a *Doctoral position (TV-L E13, 65%) in 
Computational Neuroscience. *

The position starts as soon as possible and is funded for three years.

*Job description*

The research group is highly dynamic and uses diverse 
computationalmodeling approachesincludingbiological neural networks, 
cognitive modeling, and machine learning to investigatelearning and 
memory in humans and animals. For further information see www.rub.de/cns 

The successful candidate will develop and study computational models of 
episodic memory and spatial navigation. The models will be based on 
biologically plausible spiking neurons and will account for the 
generation and learning of complex behaviors. The research focus will be 
on modeling the influence of neuro- and psychopathologies on observable 

The candidate mayenrollin a doctoral program in neuroscience, 
psychology, physics, or electrical engineering – subject to enrollment 
requirements of the particular program.

*Your Profile: *

Candidates must have


    an excellent university degreein neuroscience, psychology, physics,
    computer science, electrical/biomedical engineering or a related field,


    relevant experience modeling biological neural networks,


    excellent communication skills in English, and


    the ability to work well in a team.

Experience with research in neuro- and psychopathologieswould be a 
further asset.

The Ruhr University Bochum is home to a vibrant research community in 
neuroscienceand cognitive science. The Institute for Neural Computation 
is an independent research unit and combines different areas of 
expertise ranging from experimental and theoretical neuroscienceto 
machine learning androbotics.

Please send your application, including CV, transcripts and research 
statement electronically, as a single PDF file, to
