Two PhD student positions in computation and learning in networks of spiking neurons, Graz (Austria)


In the research group of Wolfgang Maass and Robert Legenstein at the Graz University of Technology in Austria (http://www.igi.tugraz.at/maass/) there are positions for

                     two PhD students

for research on computation and learning in networks of spiking neurons, models for complex autonomously learning neural systems (including neuronal implementations of reinforcement learning), and models for self-organization and self-calibration of biologically realistic models for cortical microcircuits and areas. A keen interest in understanding brain function as well as knowledge in machine learning, computational theory, and programming skills are expected.

These two PhD Students will be funded for 3 years by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network Facets-ITN of the EU. They will receive a strongly interdisciplinary training including extended stays in several partner laboratories from the FACETS-project of the EU http://facets.kip.uni-heidelberg.de/. These are pure research positions, without teaching duties.

Applicants for these positions in Graz should send their CV, statement of interest, and pdf's of relevant papers (e.g. master thesis) as soon as possible to Angelika Zehetner angelika@igi.tugraz.at

(The rules of the Marie Curie Network demand that applicants for the positions in Austria must be of non-Austrian nationality and have spent less than 12 months during the last 3 years in Austria.)
