Postdoctoral Researcher (Lyon/London)

Computational Neuroscience 



Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, University College London, UK 

http://www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk/  and Institute for Cognitive Science, Lyon,
France http://www.isc.cnrs.fr/index_en.htm



A postdoctoral research position in computational neuroscience is available
as part of a collaboration between Sophie Deneve at the Institute for
Cognitive Science in Lyon, France, and Peter Dayan at the Gatsby
Computational Neuroscience Unit, in London, UK.


For details about the two labs, please see:


Sophie Deneve: www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk/~deneve

Peter Dayan:   www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk/~dayan


The overall theme of the project is "Bayesian inference models and spiking
neural networks", and the research will involve building and analysing
probabilistic treatments of representation, inference and learning in
spiking models of cortex.

While appointed through University College London, the majority of the
research will be undertaken at the ISC in Lyon, France, with frequent return
visits to the Gatsby Unit to ensure effective collaboration.  The postholder
will be provided with a generous travel allowance to facilitate travel
between the two institutions and to support conference, workshop and other
collaborative research visits.


A good background in computational neuroscience and statistics is required.
Candidates with prior experience in modelling and simulating large networks
of spiking neurons will be given priority.


Salary is competitive, based on experience and achievement.  The position is
available for immediate start.  The appointment will be for an initial
period of two years but may be extended depending on progress and funding.


Applicants should send, in pdf format, a CV, a statement of research
interests, and the names and full contact details (including e-mail
addresses) of three referees to: deneve at isc.cnrs.fr


Informal enquiries should be addressed to Sophie Deneve at this same e-mail
