The Institute of Neuroinformatics at UZH-ETH Zurich
announces an opening for a PhD position.
The mission of the Institute is to discover the key
principles by which brains work and to implement these
in artificial systems that interact intelligently with the real
The aim of this project is to develop a real-time active
vision system by interfacing neuromorphic VLSI selective
attention chips to neuromorphic sensors and robotic
actuators. The neuromorphic chips model the properties
of biological systems down to the single neuron and
synapse dynamics and use a digital asynchronous
communication infrastructure.
Applicants should have
* a strong interest in bio-inspired hardware engineering;
* the ability to work independently;
* good skills in programming C and Matlab;
* basic knowledge of neural networks and machine vision;
* fundamental notions of microelectronics and/or
