The Adaptive Behaviour Research Group (ABRG -
www.shef.ac.uk/~abrg) at Sheffield is seeking a postdoctoral
researcher in computational neuroscience working on models of
intrinsically motivated learning. The post is part of a
multinational and highly interdisciplinary project IM-CLeVeR -
Intrinsically Motivated Cumulative Learning Versatile Robots –
funded by the European Union. One main focus of the work is the
development of biologically constrained models of a novel
learning task using a joy-stick and computer generated
stimuli. The successful applicant will work closely with an
experimental psychologist at Sheffield who will be investigating
human performance on the new task.  This project links to the
wider programme of research conducted within the ABRG and the
appointee will become part of a large and vibrant team. The post
is for four years with an expected start date of 1st May 2009.
