Looking for Post-docs

An enthusiastic and well-qualified post-doctoral researcher is required to work in the wide area of computational sensorimotor integration in the laboratory of Konrad Koerding at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University, Chicago. Current research in the laboratory focuses on the question of decoding of neural signals, cue combination and motor control. These projects require probabilistic models and supervised as well as unsupervised learning techniques. We also test which algorithms are used by the human brain. A successful applicant is expected to bring together machine learning skills with neuroscience problems.

Applicants should have a PhD and skills relevant to machine learning, Bayesian statistics or computational neuroscience and an interest in the way the nervous system solves computational problems; however applicants with a strong background in psychophysics who wish to learn computational approaches will also be considered. Experience with Matlab would be very advantageous.

The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) boasts a large concentration of researchers that address various questions about movement in healthy and patient populations. The department of physiology hosts many scientists probing the neural basis of movement.

Informal inquiries can be addressed by email to Professor Konrad Koerding (konrad -at- koerding -dot- com). For more information about the environment see the Web Pages of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, the Northwestern Department of Physiology and the Northwestern Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
