Open PhD position in mathematical neuroscience in Berlin
Open PhD position in mathematical neuroscience in Berlin We are looking for a PhD candidate in mathematical neuroscience on the topic "Dynamics and variability of structured spiking neural networks". Although the focus is on the theory side, the project also includes the analysis of neuronal population data and associated problems of data assimilation. Methods will be developed within the frameworks of the theory of stochastic processes, statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics.
The PhD position in the group "Data assimilation in Neuroscience" will be part of the vibrant computational neuroscience community at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin and the Institute of Mathematics (Stochastics and Financial Mathematics) of TU Berlin.
The successful candidate should have a degree in mathematics or physics, keen interest in computational neuroscience, expertise in analytical calculations, programming skills (C++ or C, Python or Julia, LaTeX), and excellent command of the English language, good communication skills, and team spirit.
Funding is provided for five years. Applications, including a letter of motivation, a CV, a current copy of academic transcripts, and a list of at least two potential referees should be sent by email to Prof. Dr. Tilo Schwalger:
The deadline for applications is October 15th 2021, however, later applications might also be considered. More information is available under:
