Postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience in Paris
A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available in
Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris) to work on spike-based computation in
the auditory system with Romain Brette (http://audition.ens.fr/brette/)
in the Audition lab (http://lpp.psycho.univ-paris5.fr/hearing.php). The
position is funded by the European Research Council (Starting Grant).
Specific subjects include:
* Spike-based models of sound localization (in particular the problem of
reverberation, in relationship with the precedence effect)
* Spike-based models of pitch perception
* STDP in auditory models (in particular how structure in sounds (e.g.
periodicity) may be learned)
The lab is a friendly mixture of modelers and experimental
psychologists. It is ideally located in central Paris, in the Quartier
Latin, in close proximity with theoretical neuroscientists,
psychologists and neurophysiologists.
The position is funded for two years with possible extensions. Salary is
commensurate with experience and the position carries a full social
security and health coverage. Candidates should send their applications
(including a brief letter of interest, a CV and the names and contact
details of two or three references) to Romain Brette (romain.brette@xxxxxx).
