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.
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
