The Faculty of Biology of the University of Freiburg invites applications for a
Full Professorship (W 3) for Theoretical Systems Neuroscience
at the Institute of Biology III to be filled as soon as possible.
This professorship is also particularly suitable for highly qualified early career researchers.
The future job holder should be internationally renowned for the investigation of complex
brain functions using modern theoretical neuroscientific approaches. In this context,
investigations at the systems level using modern approaches from the theoretical
and/or computational neurosciences are particularly welcome. Thematically, the professorship
should focus on one of the following areas: learning mechanisms, decision-
making processes, sensory systems, sensorimotor integration/control, or the mechanistic
understanding of neuronal networks in functional and dysfunctional brains.
Collaborations with the experimental and theoretical neuroscientific research groups
and research centres established in Freiburg are very welcome. Further information
on neuroscientific research in Freiburg can be found on the website
