W3-Professorship in computational neuroscience (Goettingen, Deadline: Oct 27, 2004)

Professorship (W3) in Computational Neuroscience

The Georg-August-Universit?t G?ttingen invites, pending the approval of
the BMBF, applications for a Professorship in Computational Neuroscience
(W3) starting as early as possible.

We are looking for an internationally recognized research personality, who
will represent the field of Computational Neuroscience in research and
teaching. The successful candidate should collaborate with existing
research groups in the area of Neuroscience in G?ttingen and participate
in the coordination of the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience G?ttingen,
which is currently being established. The candidate's research should
complement and expand the scientific spectrum of the Center.

Possible areas of research include dynamics and coding in biological
neural networks, computer-aided analysis of complex neural systems and/or
the development of simulation technology for large biological neural
networks. We expect a substantial contribution of the candidate towards
establishing the PhD program in Computational Neuroscience within the
G?ttingen Graduate School of Science.

The professorship is assigned to the Institute for Informatics in the
Faculty of Mathematics of the Georg-August-Universit?t G?ttingen.
Initially the position is limited to five years but will be extended to
tenure following a positive evaluation. Habilitation or alternatively
documented evidence of equivalent scientific qualifications is required.

The Universit?t G?ttingen seeks to increase the proportion of female
faculty members. Thus qualified women are especially encouraged to apply.
If equally qualified, candidates with disabilities will be preferentially
considered. The deadline for applications is October 27, 2004.

Please submit your application in English, together with the usual
information (curriculum vitae, publication list, names of three possible
referees) and copies of your three most important publications to: Prof.
Dr. Theo Geisel, Institut f?r Nichtlineare Dynamik, Universit?t G?tti
