Postdoc position in cognitive computational neuroscience

By News, Research No Comments


A postdoc position in cognitive computational neuroscience is available at the Department of Psychology (Director: Christian Doeller) at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany.

We are seeking highly talented candidates to contribute to our long-term goal to identify the fundamental neural coding principles underlying human thinking and behaviour. The successful candidate should have a strong background in computational neuroscience and should have experience in either developing or applying (or both) computational models in cognitive neuroscience (models applicable to human behavioural or neural data or both). Areas of expertise can for instance include reinforcement learning and cognitive maps, successor representations of state spaces, computational models of spatial navigation, computational approaches to assess neural geometry, or deep neural networks applied to cognitive neuroscience.

Psychological time shapes our memories

By News, Research No Comments

Do you remember the last time your mother called? Something like that, probably – it is often difficult for us to say the exact time when an event happened in the past. Jacob Bellmund and Christian Doeller from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences (MPI CBS) wanted to find out exactly how our brains estimate such times. They have now published their results in the journal Nature Communications, showing that psychologically constructed time shapes our memories.

Jacob Bellmund selected as KT Boost Fellow

By News
Our postdoc Jacob Bellmund was selected as a Klaus Tschira Boost Fellow.
The fellowship was awarded by the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the German Scholars Organization. The aim of the Klaus Tschira Boost Fund is to make the career paths of young scientists more flexible, accelerate them and promote early independence by providing flexible funding, support in establishing collaborations and networks, and targeted support and advice. With the support of the Klaus Tschira Boost Fund, Jacob will work on a new research project in collaboration with our lab at the MPI CBS and Dr. Nicolas Schuck from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin.
