Job offer: Postdoctoral position in Computational Neuroscience/Neuroinformatics

Postdoctoral position in Computational Neuroscience/Neuroinformatics, project: “In the quest of sources of brain cognitive activity”.

The NeuroCognitive Laboratory at the Center for Modern Interdisciplinary Technologies, Nicolaus Copernicus University, invites applications for a postdoctoral position.

The goal of the project is to develop, implement and investigate, new techniques of multimodal brain imaging data analysis, including fMRI, EEG/MEG data from humans, and develop new neurofeedback applications. The method will be tested on data from experiments performed within our consortium involving our Neurocognitive Lab (PI prof. W. Duch), Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics (prof. A. Cichocki, coordinator of the whole consortium), Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology(PI E. Kublik) and The Institute of Physiology and Pathology of Hearing (PI prof H. Skarżyński, dr T. Wolak).

The ideal candidate should have a strong computational background, experience in computational neuroscience or brain imaging, analysis of EEG or fMRI data. If you have a solid background in computational neuroscience, physics, maths, computer science, engineering, and want to revolutionize brain research and apply it to heal brains you should consider joining our group. Funding is available for 2-3 years. The gross yearly salary depends on employment time and experience. Cost of living in Toruń are relatively low (comparison is here).

To apply or inquire send email to wduch@is.umk.pl. Applications should include a CV, statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details of one to three referees. The deadline for application is June 19, 2018. We will continue recruitment until the position is filled. More information is on the official university recruitment page:

Warning about fake conferences on artificial neural networks in 2018

We have noticed the existence of an organisation claiming to organise the ICANN 2018 conference without any authorization from the ENNS. The organisation, called WASET, has a long history of “organising” thousands of conferences every year with the aim of earning money with the registration fees.

ENNS declines any relation with the above mentioned organisation and discourages anybody from participating to their events.

Wednesday September 7th, 2016

Join us for a toast and typical Catalan refreshments.

More details are available on the conference website.

Warning about fake conference on neural networks

We have noticed the existence of an organisation claiming to organise the ICANN 2015 conference without any authorization from the ENNS. The organisation, called WASET, has a long history of “organising” thousands of conferences every year with the aim of earning money with the registration fees. The ENNS declines any relation with the above mentioned organisation and discourages anybody from participating to their events.

The legit homepage for the next ICANN will be announced on this homepage.
