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. ------- Forwarded Message Date: Wed, 24 Jan 1996 16:14:28 +0100 From: wagner(at)tyto.bio2.rwth-aachen.de (Hermann Wagner) 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 "Habilitation". 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. Scientists interested in the position may contact Prof. Dr. Hermann Wagner, Institut fuer Biologie II, Lehrstuhl fuer Zoologie/Tierphysiologie, RWTH Aachen, Kopernikusstr. 16, D-52074 Aachen, Tel. +49 (0241) 804835, Fax: +49 (0241) 8888133 or send e-mail to: wagner(at)tyto.bio2.rwth-aachen.de ------- End of Forwarded Message
