PhD position in Computational Neuroscience

ID: 5127
Kategorie: Wissenschaft
Funktion: PhD position in Computational Neuroscience
Institution: Department of Physiology, University of Bern, Med. Faculty
The computational neuroscience group at the Department of Physiology studies mathematical models of neurons and synapses in the context of cortical information processing and learning. We are particularly interested in biologically plausible models for learning and memory which explain animal and human behaviour. The current project aims to extend the theory of reinforcement learning in spiking neurons to networks and sequence learning.
Ideal candidates have a Master related in Theoretical Physics, Mathematics, Computational Neuroscience, or Engineering with a strong background in Mathematics.
