PostDoc -- GRIDMAP: from brains to technical implementation
The research group on Neuroscientific System Theory (NST) at Technische Universität Munich (TUM) invites applications for a
PostDoc in the EU FET project "GRIDMAP: from brains to technical implementation"
The project investigates the formation of grid cells in rodents and possible translations to unsupervised parallel processing computer architectures. The focus of the NST research group at TUM is on theoretical modeling and on distributed (robot based) implementations of processing algorithms. The ideal candidate has prior knowledge about neuronal spatial representations and a strong commitment/interest in (neuronal) parallel computing architectures, such as the SpiNNaker computing system.
The position is available immediately with flexible start date.
In exceptional cases applications for a PhD position will also be considered.
Project consortium: Edvard Moser, Trondheim; Richard Morris, Edinburgh; Alessandro Treves, Trieste, Jörg Conradt, Munich
The GRIDMAP project allows frequent exchange visits to the labs involved and provides further funding for conference travel.
