W2 group leader position
The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Tübingen (http://www.bccn-tuebingen.de) seeks to appoint a
W2 group leader position in "Theoretical Neuroscience"
at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics.
The Bernstein Center in Tuebingen investigates the neural basis of perceptual inference and we invite excellent postdoctoral researchers in the field of Theoretical Neuroscience who would like to contribute to the goals of the center to apply. To ensure full consideration application documents should be sent as electronic copy to the coordinator of the Bernstein center (mbethge(AT)tuebingen.mpg.de) by July 15.
The total funding for the group is 1.2 Mio Euros and the run time is 6 years. The group will be located at Max-Planck-Institute for Biological Cybernetics. There are no teaching obligations but great opportunities to contribute to the lecturing at the newly established graduate school for neural information processing (http://www.neuroschool-tuebingen-comput.de/index.php?id=182).
The Bernstein Center entertains close links to the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) in Tübingen (http://www.cin.uni-tuebingen.de) and includes two Max Planck Institutes, the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research, and the University. The thriving research community is composed of sixty labs with more than 150 postdocs and 300 PhD students. Possibilities exist for multiple interactions between neurobiological, psychophysical, and theoretical researchers.
Tübingen itself is a beautiful medieval town and home to one of the oldest European universities. It boasts a rich cultural community and is situated close to the Black Forrest within 2h train or driving distance to France, Switzerland and Austria.
