Postdoctoral Positions in Systems Neuroscience at Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders in Leuven, Belgium

Postdoctoral positions in systems neuroscience available starting October 2011 in the laboratory of Vincent Bonin at Neuro-Electronics Research Flanders in Leuven, Belgium, (NERF, www.nerf.be) with support from VIB, imec and K.U. Leuven. The purpose of the Bonin lab is to understand the network computations and biological mechanisms that underlie visual processing in the mammalian brain. We use a combination of large-scale neural recordings (two-photon calcium imaging, millimeter scale imaging, silicon probes), neural stimulation, and computational modeling to probe large populations of neurons in the visual system of awake, behaving mice….

PhD Scholarship in Ice Sheet Monitoring from Satellites and Aircraft, Denmark 2011

The research theme of the PhD. will involve development of methods for cryosphere monitoring from satellites (GRACE, IceSat and CryoSat-2) as well as airborne measurements, and the application to the Greenland ice sheet as well as North Atlantic region ice caps (e.g., Svalbard and Iceland). The overall goal is to obtain consistent results of ice mass loss estimates by combination of different types of remote sensing data, including validation by in-situ or other glaciological data. The PhD project includes especially focus on analysis of Cryosat-2 data, as well as recent airborne altimetry data from both European and NASA…
