Applications are invited for a doctoral student position to implement in software and hardware, computational methods for sound processing inspired by biological principles. The goal is to develop a robust real-time sound processing system which recognizes sounds and uses novel front-end sensor pre-processors such as the silicon cochlea. We are seeking a motivated student with a strong background in physics and / or computer science or electrical engineering. The position is available immediately for individuals with a degree in related fields. Other requirements: Programming knowledge of Matlab/JAVA, worked with DSPs/ FPGAs, comfortable with hardware. Salary is according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation. Interested applicants, please send your CV, grades, statement of interest, and the names of at least 1 reference to shih-at-ini-dot-uzh-dot-ch. Deadline for application is May 30, 2014 or until position is filled. This work will be done in conjunction with the groups of Shih-Chii Liu and Richard Hahnloser at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich.
