Technische Universitaet Berlin

The Department for Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Berlin
University of Technology solicits applications for

1 Postdoctoral Position, 1 Graduate Student Position

(starting date March 1 2005) within the recently established Bernstein
Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin (http://www.bccn-berlin.de).

The prospective postdoc is expected to work on computational models of
adaptation and of contextual effects in the mammalian visual system as
well as on theories about their computational role in visual processing.

The prospective graduate student is expected to join a collaboration
between the Neural Information Processing Group at TU Berlin and the
Berlin Neuroimaging Center at the Charite. He/she is expected to work on
the analysis of fMRI and EEG signals with focus on biophysical models of
connectivity and the Integration of fibre tracking data.

Reguirements: Candidates should hold a recent PhD-degree (postdoctoral
position) or a Diplom or Master degree (graduate student position) in
physics, mathematics, computer science, biology, (computational)
neuroscience, electrical engineering or related fields. Strong
mathematical and programming skills are required. For the graduate student
position, a solid background in signal or Image processing is desirable.
The ability to efficiently communicate and work in an interdisciplinary
team of experimentalists and theoreticians is crucial for the success of
the projects. Qualified candidates who have not yet worked in the field of
computational neuroscience are equally encouraged to apply.

For more information see http://ni.cs.tu-berlin.de/. The positions are
initially for 2 years, but can be extended. Salary is according to the
