One PhD position is available in a DFG approved joint research
project. The project involves the Laboratory for Action Representation
and Learning (Dr. Giese and Dr. Casile), the Department of
Cognitive Neurology (Prof. Thier) at the Hertie Institute for Clinical
Brain Research, and the Department of Physiology at the University of
Parma (Profs. Rizzolatti and Fogassi).

The project focuses on the modeling of quantitative properties of
mirror neurons. The successful candidate is supposed to develop and
test neural models of the mirror neuron system, based on
electrophysiological data. She/He will work in close collaboration
with electrophysiologists in Tübingen and Parma. The candidate can
acquire PhD degrees in any standard field at the University of
Tübingen, or in Neuroscience at the Graduate School of Neural and
Behavioral Sciences, which is run jointly by the University and the
Max Planck Institutes in Tübingen.

Tübingen offers many different institutes and facilities for research
and education in neuroscience. Through the close interaction between
experimental, clinical and theoretical research groups, it is one of
the most stimulating places for neuroscience research in Germany.

Applications from candidates, with preferably backgrounds in technical
disciplines (computer science, engineering, physics, mathematics), are
highly welcome. Prior experience with computational neuroscience is
recommended for the project. The position is funded for 3 years and
payment will be according to BAT IIa/2. Starting date for the position
is 1st of April 2006.
