PhD student positions in Principles of Brain Computation, Graz, AUSTRIA


We are inviting applications for Phd positions at the Graz University of 
Technology (Faculty for Computer Science) for research on

        Principles of Brain Computation

in the Human Brain Project http://www.humanbrainproject.eu/ and in the 
EU-Project BrainScaleS http://brainscales.kip.uni-heidelberg.de/index.html

The Human Brain Project is expected to start on October 1, and our Lab 
will lead research on principles of brain computation in this project. We 
can employ Phd students already now for closely related work in the 
BrainScales project (this project provides intermediate financing until 
the beginning of the Human Brain Project).

The Phd students will investigate computational properties and learning 
features of data-based models for cortical microcircuits, through computer 
simulations and theoretical analysis. Excellent research skills, a genuine 
interest in answering fundamental open questions about information 
processing in the brain, and the capability to work in an 
interdisciplinary research team are expected. Experience in programming, 
computer simulations or data analysis will be helpful.

Applications are invited by students with a master degree in one of the 
areas computer science (especially machine learning, software design, 
large-scale simulations), physics, mathematics, statistics, and 
computational neuroscience. Our doctoral program will lead to a Phd in 
Computer Science.

Please send your CV, information about your grades, and a letter 
describing your scientific interests and goals by March 24 to my assistant 
Regina Heidinger:

                 regina.heidinger@igi.tugraz.at

It would be helpful if you could include names and email addresses of 
referees, and pdf files of your master thesis and/or other publications.
