At the moment, we have a PhD position available and you can apply for Master’s and Bachelor’s theses in physics, biology, mathematics and computer science in our interdisciplinary group. Optimal backgrounds of students include theoretical neuroscience, theoretical physics, computer science, mathematics and quantitative biology.

Your work in our group may for example contribute to delineating the principles underlying effective computations with spiking and non-spiking neurons or investigating the origins of different experimentally observed dynamics. Some of our projects are directly guided by recent experimental results and aim at explanations that have been requested by experimentally working collaborative partners. Others have a higher level of abstraction and explore rather principal questions.

Please contact Raoul-Martin Memmesheimer (rm.memmesheimer AT for further details and application. For application please include your CV, transcripts from high school and your bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well as your  bachelor’s and master’s theses (if applicable).
