The Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) Berlin and the TU Berlin invite applications for *7 Fellowships* of the Research Training Group “Sensory Computation in Neural Systems”.

Doctoral candidates will develop computational methods for the study of sensory computations, focusing on time and dynamics, and apply these in experiments. To this end, the training group brings machine learning and engineering together with neural and cognitive modeling as well as experimental approaches. Each student will be supervised by two investigators with complementary expertise and will be associated with the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, a well-known research center dedicated to the theoretical study of neural processing.
Candidates are expected to hold a Masters degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject (e.g., neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, physics, etc.) and have the required advanced mathematical background.
All applications received until November 15, 2010, are assured full consideration. Successful candidates will be invited for a short presentation and an interview, expected to take place in January 2011. Later applications may be considered if places are still available.
The fellowships of approximately 1500 €/month will be granted for up to three years.
