Postdoctoral position in auditory neural modeling in Paris
* Postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience in Paris *
A postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience is available in
Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris from September 2011, 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).
We try to develop neuron models of auditory functions such as sound
localization, pitch and speech, with an emphasis on synchrony-based
computation. Our approach is mainly theoretical/computational, but we
can also do psychophysical experiments in the lab, and we have strong
collaborations with in vivo and in vitro labs. We are also interested in
practical applications (e.g. efficient sound localization algorithms).
See this page for more details:
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@xxxxxxx Please do
not hesitate to contact me for further details on the specific projects.
I might also be interested in non-auditory projects around spike-based
computation, and single neuron modeling.
