Dear Colleagues,

We're pleased to announce a postdoctoral position within the Computational
Systems Neuroscience Group (CSNG <http://csng.mff.cuni.cz/join_us.html>) at
Charles University, Prague, focusing on computational neuroscience and
neuro-prosthetic system design. CSNG is an international, interdisciplinary
research group that explores the intricacies of the visual system, sensory
coding, and neuro-prosthetic solutions. To do this, we use a range of
computational approaches spanning large-scale biologically detailed spiking
network models, firing-rate models of development, and modern machine
learning techniques. We are a diverse team of computer scientists,
physicists, mathematicians, and engineers dedicated to understanding visual
perception and its restoration via neuro-prosthetic devices.

Multiple project topics are available (the exact topic can be adjusted to
the interest and background of the applicant):
- Modeling electrical stimulation in a spiking model of the primary visual
cortex. The goal of this project is to understand how intra-cortical
stimulation can be used to restore vision in blind subjects.
- Deep-neural networks in visual neuroscience, especially applications for
understanding of visual perception under artificial cortical stimulation.
- Study of cortical dynamics of spontaneous or artificially evoked activity
in the visual cortex.
- Biologically detailed spiking large-scale models of early visual cortical
pathway - from Retina to V4.

Requirements: Strong computational and analytical skills. Experience in
computational modeling, spiking neural networks, machine learning or
understanding of electric field propagation in biological mediums are of
great advantage but not strictly required.Duration: Initially 2 year
contract with possibility to extend to 4 years
Funding: Fully funded for 4.0 years
Starting date: now
Teaching duties: None
Monthly salary (gross): ~2900€

To apply, send CV and cover letter explaining your interest and how your
skills align with our project to: antolik at ksvi.mff.cuni.cz

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,Ján Antolík
Assistant Professor
