A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available in Institute for Scientific Interchange (ISI) in Torino (Italy), to work on a research project in collaboration with Nicolas Brunel (Paris), Stefano Panzeri (Genova) and Nikos Logothetis (Tubingen).

The goal of the project is to better understand the role of network oscillations in transmitting sensory information, through a combination of data analysis using information theoretic techniques, and analysis of the dynamics of models of networks of spiking neurons.
This position demands an energetic and highly-motivated candidate with a strong background in computational/theoretical neuroscience and with the ability to work in an autonomous fashion. The successful candidate will be based in ISI, Torino, in the Statistical Physics research division (www.isi.it). Frequent trips to Paris (www.neurophys.biomedicale.univ-paris5.fr/~brunel) Genova (www.iit.it/en/robotics-brain-and-cognitive-sciences /people.html?view=profile&layout=profile&id=289), and Tubingen (www.kyb.mpg.de/~nikos) are expected during the project.
The position can start immediately, and is funded until July 2011. Salary will be commensurate with level of experience. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply, please send a CV and contact details of two or three references to nicolas(dot)brunel(at)parisdescartes(dot)fr
