[Comp-neuro] Phd position in the Human Brain Project: Principles of Brain Computation and Learning

We are inviting applications for a fully funded Phd position at the Graz
University of Technology (Faculty for Computer Science) for research on

Principles of Brain Computation and Learning

in the Human Brain Project
It is planned to combine this Phd position with a part-time position as
University Assistant, thereby providing the first step for a possible
university career.

Our Lab in Graz focuses currently on the development of new paradigms
for probabilistic inference and learning in networks of spiking neurons
(either in brain networks, or in neuromorphic hardware). Preceding
results on which we will build can be found on

Excellent research skills, a genuine interest in answering fundamental
open questions about computation and learning in networks of spiking
neurons, and the capability to work in an interdisciplinary research
team are expected.

Applications are especially invited by students who have a strong
background in a theoretical area related to machine learning,
computational theory or probabilistic models, and who also have
substantial experience in programming and computer simulations.
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 May 21 to my assistant
Regina Heidinger:

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.
