Full Professorship (W2) for "Dynamics and Biological Physics"

Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. Göttingen, 22.11.2017

The Faculty of Physics of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen invites applications for a

Full Professorship (W2)
for „Dynamics and Biological Physics“

at the Institut für Nichtlineare Dynamik to be filled as soon as possible.
The successful candidate is expected to represent the field of Theoretical Physics of network-dynamic neuronal and biological systems in research and teaching. It is expected that the successful candidate participates in the research focus „Primate Cognition“, the CRC 889 „Cellular Mechanisms of Sensory Processing“, the CRC 1286, „Quantitative Synaptology“ and the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience (BCCN), of the University of Göttingen. She or he will have a central role in a new interfaculty „Institute for Dynamics of Biological Networks“ being founded and will further strengthen research and teaching in theoretical and computational physics of biological networks at the Göttingen Campus.
In their research, candidates should be distinguished by outstanding, international publications, by the successful leadership of interdisciplinary research projects and by the development of novel theoretical and mathematical approaches to the structure and function of biological networks. An internationally outstanding research program in the field of theoretical and mathematical neurophysics is expected. Relevant research questions include in particular the theory of self-organization, evolution and optimization of large-scale networks in the cortex and their quantitative description, chaos and nonlinear dynamics of spiking neuronal networks and the influence of biophysical mechanisms on their information processing and phase space organization.
This job offer is based on Paragraph 25 of the Law on Higher Education of Lower Saxony in its current version. Please enquire for further details. The right for appointing the position is at the Foundation University Göttingen. Applications from scientists from abroad are particularly welcome. Part-time employment is possible.
