[Comp-neuro] Positions in computational neuroscience at Inria

The NeuroMathComp Group at the Inria Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée Research Center, strongly encourages highly qualified candidates in the field of computational/mathematical neuroscience to apply to Inria's 2014 recruiting campaign.

The NeuroMathComp Group at the Inria Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée Research Center is associated with the Mathematics Laboratory "Laboratoire Jean-Alexandre Dieudonné" (LJAD) at Nice University. It includes as staff members Bruno Cessac, Pascal Chossat, Olivier Faugeras (Group Leader), James Inglis, Pierre Kornprobst, Romain Veltz, and about 10-15 postdocs and doctoral students. Other researchers working on computational/mathematical neuroscience include Mireille Bossy, Denis Talay and Etienne Tanré from the TOSCA Group. We are located in Sophia-Antipolis, a thriving Industrial Research Park that resembles the Silicon Valley in California, both at the level of intellectual and technological excitement and at the level of the quality of life (Sea, Snow and Sun). For more information, see:

There are three entry levels at Inria: CR2 for early-career candidates (about 2-5 years since PhD), CR1 (5-10 years with lots of publications), and DR2 (international superstars). The selection process is highly rigorous, and takes place at the regional level for CR2 and the national level for CR1 and DR2:  there are two open CR2 positions for the Inria Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée Research Center which has flagged this year the area of computational neuroscience as one among its five hiring priorities. There are two open CR1 positions and eight open DR2 positions for the nine Inria Research Centers.

These are permanent positions with no nationality requirements.

The NeuroMathComp group is specifically looking for candidates at the CR2 and CR1 levels with a strong interest and experience in neuroscience modeling (computational and/or mathematical),  training in mathematics or theoretical physics and excellent programming skills. The candidates are strongly advised to contact the faculty members of the group and to provide a CV, significant published papers and a preliminary research project.

The deadline for submitting applications is February 17, 2014. The application, about 15-20 pages long, includes a summary of past research and future projects, and can be in English. Short-listing decision of candidates is due by mid April. Short-listed candidates will be invited for an oral presentation by mid-May. Final hiring decisions will be made in June.
