We are inviting applications for two Postdoctoral positions (one each in computational and experimental neuroscience) at the Bernstein Center Freiburg, University of Freiburg, Germany for research on
– Models of neuronal dynamics in brain diseases, and
– Interaction of neuronal populations in epilepsy and dystonia
within the new “Trinational Initiative on Brain Diseases” aimed at strengthening the research of neurological diseases from the perspective of theoretical neuroscience.
This initiative brings together theoretical and experimental neuroscientists from Freiburg, Strasbourg (France) and Basel (Switzerland) to investigate the neuronal networks involved in brain diseases.
[more info.: http://www.bcf.uni-freiburg.
The main goal of these projects is to understand neural mechanisms that lead to disease related aberrant neuronal activity dynamics. To this end we combine computational models biological neuronal networks and experimental measure of neuronal activity dynamics in animal models.
For the computational neuroscience post-doc position we invite applications from candidates with a PhD degree in Mathematics, Physics and electrical engineering or computational neuroscience.
For the experimental neuroscience post-doc position we invite applications from candidates with a PhD degree in neuroscience and preferably with an experience in in vivo extracellular electrophysiology.
The two post-doctoral fellows will work in close collaboration. The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the research groups of Prof. Ulrich Egert and Dr. Arvind Kumar and will work in the Bernstein Center Freiburg/Institute of Microsystems Technik (IMTEK) and will participate in the postdoc program of the BCF.
The post-doc salary will be according to TV-L E-13 – the standard German pay-scale for postdoc positions.
