Research Associate in Computational Modelling of Olfactory Processing

Centre of Bioengineering
Department of Engineering

Salary Grade 7 - £30,594 to £35,469 pa

Fixed Term Contract up to 31 December 2010 with the possibility of Extension

Ref: SEN00001

We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to undertake and deliver research in the areas covered by the EU Research Grant "Biologically Inspired Computation for Chemical Sensing (NeuroChem)". The Research Associate will be responsible for developing, implementing and testing neuronal models of olfactory processing in mammals and insects for operation in real-time to support the project wide development of a neuromorphic chemical sensing platform. These and other models made available by members of the consortia will be integrated together with chemical sensing hardware and evaluated for their ability to solve key olfactory detection problems, e.g. odour classification, segmentation and odour identification in time-varying backgrounds.

The post will be based at Leicester but will also involve some travel within Europe. Applicants should have a PhD (or close to completing a PhD) in a relevant area and a background in computational neuroscience. Experience in building and testing neuronal models is desirable.
