Several postdoctoral positions are available at the Wisconsin Institute for
Sleep and Consciousness in the laboratory of Prof. Giulio Tononi to study
complex systems within the framework of integrated information theory (IIT).

Immediate funding is available for a range of projects including the
foundational development of IIT’s mathematical framework, the development
of practical measures of integrated information, and their applications to
complex systems (biological and artificial).

Required:
Strong training in an analytically rigorous discipline such as theoretical
or computational biology/neuroscience, physics, mathematics, computer
science, or engineering
Programming experience (knowledge of MATLAB, Python, and/or C++ is of
advantage)

Preferred:
Experience in information theory and complex systems
Interest in the philosophy of causation
Appointments are renewable from year to year for up to three years,
starting as soon as possible or until the positions are filled. Postdoc
salaries correspond to the National Institutes of Health National Research
Service Award (NRSA) stipend schedule for postdoc trainees, based on number

addresses and phone numbers of three references to:
Giulio Tononi, MD, PhD (gtononi at wisc.edu)
For more information, contact Larissa Albantakis, PhD (albantakis at wisc.edu)
