Hermann Wagner: Position for a neurobiologist

Dear List -

I received the enclosed announcement from Hermann Wagner of the
Institute for Biology II in Aachen.

I have also recently received announcements of the ASSETS'96
ACM conference on assistive technologies, and a new journal of
research and practice related to Autism.  Rather than sending
them to the list, these announcements are linked to the AUDITORY
list home page, <http://sound.media.mit.edu/AUDITORY/>

  DAn Ellis.

Subject: Position available for a neurobiologist at Aachen

    A position for a neurobiologist will be available at the Institut
fuer Biologie II (Lehrstuhl fuer Zoologie/Tierphysiologie) of the RWTH
Aachen by April 1, 1996 or later. The successful candidate will be
employed for 2 years as Wissenschaftliche(r) Mitarbeiter(in) with a
salary according to BAT IIa. After this time an extension of the
contract as a C1-Hochschulassistent is possible for maximally 6 more
years. The position is especially suited for candidates seeking a

    The Lehrstuhl fuer Zoologie/Tierphysiologie at the RWTH Aachen is
currently being restructured. We shall concentrate our future research
in biological information processing. To achieve this, collaborations
with a variety of other institutes of this technical university and
closeby institutes are planned. Current research of the group
concentrates on the understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying
prey capture in the barn owl. Barn owls use both their visual and
auditory senses for locating prey. We study representations in the
brain of both sounds and visual stimuli on the experimental and
theoretical level.

    The successful candidate should have a strong background in
cognitive neuroscience. She or he should preferably work on the
cellular or systems level and have experience in neurobiological
techniques (neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, maybe experience with
neurophysiological recordings in awake animals), and have her or his
own research interest in auditory information processing. The
institute will provide for laboratory space and basic equipment, but
it is expected that the successful candidate will hold her or his own
grants. Teaching in zoology and neurobiology is required.
