A postdoc + 2 PhD students sought in limboA postdoc is sought to join the HFSP-funded project on analog computations underlying language mechanisms, in collaboration with Naama Friedmann (TAU) and Remi Monasson (ENS). Ideal candidates have a flair for (some) language, come from a background we have not thought of, and seek to get to places where they have not been, at the crossroads between neuroscience, complex systems, and poetry. A formal application will be required later from those confirming their interest.
Two PhD students from outside Italy are sought to later join as ESRs the EU Training Network M-GATE, on hippocampal memory functions, which includes 7 institutes + 4 companies and is coordinated by Francesco Battaglia (Nijmegen). Ideal candidates, who can be of any nationality but must not have spent much time in Italy in the last 3 years, enjoy analytical, mathematical and computational excursions when in search of fundamental network understanding. Strict deadline of August 31st for participating in the admission exam (Sept 11-12, in Trieste) to the SISSA PhD course.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org now, if interested in either possibility.
No beginning and no end
Our research lines are a confusing web of recurrent themes feeding back on each other. The categorization into webpages is just meant to affect a sense of direction and perspective. Which you may lose, when coming to visit us in Trieste. Our campus at Sanatorio Santorio Santorio will anyway offer you a view of the gulf, as well as test your alliterative capacities.

CoordinatesWe are located in the former Santorio Hospital, at the edge of the Carso overlooking Trieste. It can be reached with the Tram de Opcina (when it operates, which is never) or with bus 38, both from piazza Oberdan.
