Careers

Summer Research Assistant/Associate, CCN
Full-time|New York, NY

CCN invites applications for paid summer internships by motivated graduate or advanced undergraduate students in physics, electrical engineering, machine learning, computer science or related fields (advanced doctoral students are encouraged to apply instead to CCN’s Summer Predoc Program, which runs concurrently). Knowledge of neuroscience is helpful but not required. Undergraduate students will be appointed with the title of Summer Research Assistant, while graduate students will be appointed with the title, Summer Research Associates.
 
CCN interns are invited to participate as full members of the CCN and Flatiron Institute communities during their internship. CCN interns are assigned a primary mentor and research group within the center, are invited to attend and present within their research group’s meetings, and are also invited to participate in meetings of CCN’s other research groups as well as center- and Flatiron-wide activities such as guest lectures, training on use of the Institute’s robust scientific computing resources, and intern social activities. Finally, interns will be invited to present their work at a Institute-wide symposium held at the end of the internship period.

Summer Pre-Doctoral Researchers, CCN
Full-time|New York, NY

CCN invites applications for paid summer predoctoral positions by motivated doctoral students in computational neuroscience, physics, electrical engineering, machine learning, computer science or related fields. The purpose of this Summer Predoctoral Researcher Program is to provide doctoral students with an assigned dissertation advisor and an identified dissertation topic in a relevant field the opportunity to be employed at the CCN for the purpose of collaborating on a research project with one or more CCN staff mentors. Knowledge of neuroscience is helpful but not required. Interested applicants should review the research group pages of the PIs listed above, and should describe in their research statement the project on which they’d like to collaborate and the research group(s) with whom they’d like to work.
 
CCN Predoctoral Scholars are invited to participate as full members of the CCN and Flatiron communities during their term of residency. CCN Summer Predoctoral Researchers are assigned a primary mentor and research group within the center, are invited to attend and present within their research group’s meetings, and are also invited to participate in meetings of CCN’s other research groups as well as center- and Flatiron-wide activities such as guest lectures, training on use of the Institute’s robust scientific computing resources, and intern social activities.

Flatiron Research Fellow, CCN
Full-time|New York, NY

The Center for Computational Neuroscience (CCN) invites applications for Flatiron Research Fellowships (FRFs – our designation for Postdoctoral Fellows) in CCN’s computational vision and neural circuits and algorithms groups. CCN aims to develop theories, models, and computational methods that deepen our knowledge of brain function — both in health and in disease. CCN takes a “systems” neuroscience approach, building models that are motivated by fundamental principles, that are constrained by properties of neural circuits and responses, and that provide insights into perception, cognition and behavior. This cross-disciplinary approach not only leads to the design of new model-driven scientific experiments, but also encapsulates current functional descriptions of the brain that can spur the development of new engineered computational systems, especially in the realm of machine learning.
