We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researchers and PhD students to study information processing in spiking neuronal networks.


Open projects center around the recently developed tempotron family of spiking neuronal network models and cover a broad range of topics including mathematical analyzes of information processing in spiking neuronal networks, spike-based learning in single and multi-layer neuronal networks, sensory spike data analysis, temporal processing with short term synaptic dynamics, as well as applied development of visual and speech processing systems.

The positions are available immediately. Applicants should have a strong background in physics, mathematics, computer science, computational neuroscience or a related field and a keen interest in neurobiology and systems neuroscience. Good programming skills (C, Python and/or Matlab) are important and experience with numerical simulations highly beneficial. Previous exposure to neuroscience is preferred but not required. Applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

Please send you application to Robert Gütig including a cover letter, a detailed CV (with academic degrees, grades and publications), a statement of research experiences and interests and the names and contact information of at least two referees.

Göttingen provides a vibrant and stimulating neuroscience community with a strong background in both, experimental and computational neuroscience. The research campus includes the three Max-Planck Institutes for Biophysical Chemistry, Experimental Medicine and Dynamics and Self-Organization, the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen, the Center for System Neuroscience (CSN), the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN) and the interdisciplinary Collaborative Research Center Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Processing. Graduate students can choose among a large number PhD programs of the Göttingen Graduate School for Neurosciences and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB).
