We are inviting applications for two Postdoctoral positions (one each in
computational and experimental neuroscience) at the Bernstein Center
Freiburg, University of Freiburg, Germany for research on
- Models of neuronal dynamics in brain diseases, and
- Interaction of neuronal populations in epilepsy and dystonia
within the new "Trinational Initiative on Brain Diseases" aimed at
strengthening the research of neurological diseases from the perspective of
theoretical neuroscience. This initiative brings together theoretical and
experimental neuroscientists from Freiburg, Strasbourg (France) and Basel
(Switzerland) to investigate the neuronal networks involved in brain
[more info.:
The main goal of these projects is to understand neural mechanisms that lead
to disease related aberrant neuronal activity dynamics. To this end we
combine computational models biological neuronal networks and experimental
measure of neuronal activity dynamics in animal models. 
For the computational neuroscience post-doc position we invite applications
from candidates with a PhD degree in Mathematics, Physics and electrical
engineering or computational neuroscience.
For the experimental neuroscience post-doc position we invite applications
from candidates with a PhD degree in neuroscience and preferably with an
experience in in vivo extracellular electrophysiology.
The two post-doctoral fellows will work in close collaboration. The
postdoctoral researcher will be part of the research groups of Prof. Ulrich
Egert and Dr. Arvind Kumar and will work in the Bernstein Center
Freiburg/Institute of Microsystems Technik (IMTEK) and will participate in
the postdoc program of the BCF.

The post-doc salary will be according to TV-L E-13 - the standard German
pay-scale for postdoc positions.

The Bernstein Center Freiburg is an interdisciplinary research facility
comprising of young researchers from mathematics, physics, electrical
engineering and biology. The research at the BCF ranges from
mathematical-theoretical approaches on the function and dynamics of neuronal
networks over neuroanatomy and experimentally driven neurophysiology up to
the development of technologies for medical application.
