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).
