Several postdoctoral and PhD positions in neuroscience are available at the
Dept. of Zoology and Neurobiology, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany.
One project is concerned with the representation of space in posterior
parietal cortex and the dynamic visual space perception during eye movements.
This is an international collaboration with laboratories in Italy and the US,
funded for three years by the Human Frontier Science Program. Another project
is concerned with the mechanism of high level visual motion perception and
the recognition of biological motion. This project is funded for five years
by the German Ministry of Science and Technology. For more information see
For both projects, applications are invited from researchers interested in
neurophysiology, computational neuroscience, or visual psychophysics.
Starting date could be immediately or in early 2000. Salary depends on

The Ruhr University Bochum is located in the western part of Germany. There
is a large and active neuroscience community with working groups in several
departments including the Dept.of Zoologie and Neurobiologie, the Institute
for Neuroinformatics, the Dept. of Physiology, and the Dept. of Psychology.
The special research action "NEUROVISION" and the graduate program KOGNET
provide a forum for interdisciplinary research in visual neuroscience within
