 JOB
OFFERS: I am
offering two twoyear postdoc positions to work
with me on MeanField descriptions or
thermodynamics limits of large populations of
neurons. Keywords are propagation of chaos,
correlations, finite size effects, plasticity,
comparison with population based approaches. The
position is within the SP4
(Theory) of the HBP.
Candidates should have a background in
mathematics or mathematical physics, especially
probability theory, large deviations,
mathematical statistical physics, McKeanVlasov
type equations, and a strong interest in
applying these theories to neuroscience. They
will be expected to interact with other
participants of SP4 as well as with some
participants of SP3.
Interested candidates should send their vitae to
me at the above address.
 Current work, related interests:
 Computational neuroscience
 Mathematics for neuroscience: bifurcation
theory, stochastic calculus,
integrodifferential equations
 Modelling of biological and machine visual
perception
 Main Current EC funded Project:
 HBP
(European Flagship):
Theoretical insights from mathematics can make
a valuable contribution to many different
areas of HBP research, from modelling of
lowlevel biological processes, to the
analysis of largescale patterns of brain
activity and the formalisation of new
paradigms of computation. I am a partner
within SP4
(Theory).
 Former EC funded Project:
 BrainScaleS
(supported by the European Union seventh
Framework Programme): understanding function
and interaction of multiple spatial and
temporal scales in brain information
processing. This is a followup to the FACETS
project.
 NerVi
(ERC advanced grant): develop a formal model
of information representation and processing
in the part of the neocortex that is mostly
concerned with visual information.
 Mathemacs
(supported by the European Union seventh
Framework Programme): develop a mathematical
theory of complex multilevel systems and their
dynamics.

In December 2015 I received at ICCV15 the This
award is given to researchers in Computer Vision
who have made major contributions to the field
over their career and who have influenced the
field in an extraordinary way. Click
