2x RCUK Academic Fellowships in Centre for Computational Neuroscience and 
Robotics (Fixed term to permanent) JOB REF: 422
Department of Biology & Environmental Science and Department of 
Informatics, University of Sussex

Fixed Term for 5 years leading to a permanent post.

We seek to appoint two outstanding Academic Fellows under the RCUK scheme 
to work in the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics 
Neuroscience (www.informatics.sussex.ac.uk/ccnr/), a leading 
interdisciplinary research centre run jointly by the Neuroscience research 
group within the Department of Biology and Environmental Science and the 
Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems group in the Department of Informatics. 
The Fellows will contribute to one or more of the CCNR's areas of research 
which include computational neuroscience, sensory and motor systems, MEA 
interfacing to cultured neural networks, insect and robot navigation, 
biologically inspired adaptive robotics, complex adaptive systems and 
computational biology.

We are looking for scientists who can show evidence of independent research 
of international standing as well as promise as excellent communicators of 
science. Both fellowships will be joint appointments in the Department of 
Biology and Environmental Science and the Department of Informatics. 
Although we seek two individuals with strong multidisciplinary interests, 
one may be more biased towards the biological sciences and the other 
towards the computational.

The RCUK fellowship scheme (www.rcuk.ac.uk/acfellow/) is designed to give 
researchers on fellowships or grant funding a stable route into academia. 
Those who already hold or are promised a permanent position in a University 
are not eligible. The University has a commitment to provide a permanent 
position as a member of teaching faculty at the end of the 5-year 
fellowship, subject to the satisfactory completion of the probation period. 
Salary will depend on skills and experience.

For an informal discussion about this post, please contact Prof Phil 
Husbands (philh at sussex.ac.uk) or Prof Michael O'Shea (M.O-Shea at sussex.ac.uk)
