Welcome and thank you for the many positive comments about the formation of The Australian Association of Computational Neuroscientists and Neuromorphic Engineers. We hope the Association will aid in distributing information, fostering collaboration and promoting our research to the wider community.
 Dr Mark McDonnell from the University of South Australia is seeking expressions of interest for a two year postdoctoral position in computational neuroscience. Further details can be found here.
 We have added two new webpages, one that will promote PhD projects and other research opportunities as well as one that records past Australian Computational Neuroscience Workshops. If you would like to add relevant information to these pages, please email us.
 NeuroEng subscribers can choose the categories of posts they receive via email. For example, we have emailed two employment related posts that not all subscribers will have received. You can modify your subscription categories by logging on to the website and visiting http://neuroeng.org.au/wordpress/wp-admin/admin.php?page=s2. I recommend that you set ‘to receive email as HTML-Full’. Whilst you are at the website, please take a moment to update your profile to include your full name and institution (in biographical info). This will help us ensure that posts are only distributed to members of this research community.
 Thanks to Dr Tara Hamilton for her workshop “Building Asia-Pacific Collaborations in Neuromorphic Research” at UNSW last month. It was a great mix of scientists and engineers, resulting in many interesting and enjoyable discussions.
 We would appreciate contributions of images that represent the community of Australian computational neuroscientists / neuromorphic engineers to form a gallery and for the website generally. If you can assist, please email relevant images to firstname.lastname@example.org.
