Post-doctoral and PhD Research Positions
Computational Neuroscience

The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit invites applications for PhD
studentships and post-doctoral research positions tenable from September 2000.

Members of the unit are interested in models of all aspects of brain
function, especially unsupervised learning, computational vision,
reinforcement learning, and computational motor control, and also conduct
psychophysical experiments in motor control and vision. For further
details please see: http://www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk/research.html

The Gatsby Unit provides a unique opportunity for a critical mass of
theoreticians to interact closely with each other and with University
College's other world class research groups including Anatomy, Computer
Science, Functional Imaging Laboratory, Physics, Physiology, Psychology,
Neurology, Ophthalmology, and Statistics. The unit has excellent
computational facilities, and laboratory facilities include both motor and
visual psychophysics labs for theoretically motivated experimental studies.
The unit's visitor and seminar programmes enable its staff and students to
interact with leading researchers from across the world.

Candidates should have a strong analytical background and a keen interest
in neuroscience. Competitive salaries and studentships are available.

Applicants should send a CV [PhD applicants should include details of
course work and grades], a statement of research interests, and names and
addresses of 3 referees to janice@gatsby.ucl.ac.uk [email preferred] or to
