Postdoctoral Training Fellowships - Theoretical Neuroscience

The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit invites applications for
postdoctoral training fellowships in theoretical neuroscience and
related areas.

The Gatsby Unit is a centre for theoretical neuroscience and machine
learning, focusing on the interpretation of neural data, population
coding, perceptual processing, neural dynamics, neuromodulation, and
learning. The Unit also has significant interests across a range of
areas in machine learning.

For further details of our research please see:

The Unit provides a unique environment in which a critical mass of
theoreticians interact closely with each other and with other
world-class research groups in related departments at UCL, including
Anatomy, Computer Science, Functional Imaging, Physics, Physiology,
Psychology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, and Statistics, and the
cross-faculty Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning.

The Unit's visitor and seminar programmes enable staff and students to
engage with leading researchers from across the world.

Candidates must have a strong analytical background and demonstrable
interest and expertise in theoretical neuroscience.

Salaries are competitive, based on experience and achievement. Funding
for the positions is available for an initial period of between one and
two years.

Applicants should send in pdf, plain text or Word format a CV, a
statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details
(including e-mail addresses) of three referees to:
