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 quantitative neurophysiological investigations
of mirror neurons. The successful candidate is supposed to carry out
neurophysiological recordings of the activity of mirror neurons in
monkey pre-motor cortex. She/He will work in close collaboration with
theorists who will develop computational models of the collected
data. The candidate can acquire a PhD degree 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 a strong interest in neurophysiology
from the fields medicine, biology, psychology, but also computer
science, physics and engineering are highly welcome. Prior experience
with neurophysiological recordings will be an advantage, but not
necessarily be required. 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.
