Junior research scientist positions in computational neuroscience and
brain imaging in the Odyssee Laboratory at INRIA (France).

The Odyssee laboratory (project team, http://www-sop.inria.fr/odyssee/presentation/index.en.html) at INRIA
(the French Research Institute in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics) is looking for top candidates to fill one or two junior researcher positions in
computational neuroscience or brain imaging (functional, anatomical) analysis, starting between September 1st and December 31st, 2008.
These are tenured (permanent) positions with no teaching duties.
The applicants must have a strong background in mathematics, and/or physics, and/or computational science and obtained a postdoctoral experience in computational neuroscience and/or the analysis of brain imaging data. They are expected to develop their own interdisciplinary research and to join the group efforts in the field. We have very close collaborations with several experimental groups in neurophysiology and brain imaging.
Our current research topics include brain imaging techniques and inverse problems (EEG/MEG, diffusion MR imaging, optical imaging and intracellular recording) and computational neuroscience (dynamics of biophysical and spiking neuron models, mean field modelling, computational neuroscience of vision,
simulation techniques). For more information, see our last activity report (http://www-sop.inria.fr/odyssee/raweb/ra07.pdf).
The Odyssee group is distributed between Sophia-Antipolis (near Nice, on the
French riviera) and the Ecole Normale Supérieure in downtown Paris (in
the heart of the “Quartier Latin”), and the candidate can apply to
either place.
The Odyssee project team is competing with other INRIA groups for these positions hence we strongly suggest to all interested persons to contact the scientific director of the project team, Olivier Faugeras (Olivier.Faugeras@sophia.inria.fr), before starting the application procedure.
Application forms must be sent in before February 20th (2008), see the following web page:
