A four year doctoral position is available at the Biological Neurocomputation Group, Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain. This position is related to the project "Stimulus-response closed-loops for multiscale and bidirectional interaction with the nervous system" (MINECO TIN2012-30883). The research will focus on assessing information processing in neural transient dynamics with closed-loop technologies. See references below.
The PhD position is funded by Spanish MINECO. Applicants should hold a Master's degree at the time of the formalization of the contract in one of the following (or related) disciplines: computer science, physics, biology, engineering (graduation date not earlier than January 1st 2010).
Prior experience in the fields of electrophysiological recordings, EEG, neuroimaging, or computational neuroscience will be valuable. Enthusiasm for interdisciplinary research is required.
