                  Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Neural
                       Computation/Accelerated Computing

A full-time research position is open in the research group of Julius Georgiou
(http://www.ece.ucy.ac.cy/labs/holistic_elab) in context of the focused 
project “Acoustic Scene Analysis for Detecting Living Entities” (SCANDLE), 
funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Program “Cognitive 
Systems, Interaction Robotics”. A description of the project can be found at 
this research webpage http://www.scandle.eu. The position will be available 
from the 1st of January 2011 and will continue until March 2012. This is full-
time appointment.

Salary is commensurate with experience. The position does not include a “13th
Salary” bonus or medical insurance.

The researcher is expected to conduct research work under the direct 
supervision of Dr. Georgiou and Prof Andreas Andreou and to collaborate 
closely with Prof Sue Denham and her team. More specifically the candidate will 
work on implementing computational models of auditory perception on FPGA based 
Neural Arrays that process information gathered from acoustic scenes.

The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in Cognitive Sciences, Neuroscience,
Computer Science, or Engineering and must be familiar with computational 
modeling of neural processes. The applicant must have excellent computer 
skills in the C programming language and in Matlab programming. Basic 
experience with programming FPGAs is also required. He/she should be competent 
in English, since this position requires frequent communications with other 
consortium members. Further enquiries can be directed to Dr. Julius Georgiou 
(julio at ucy.ac.cy ) 

Applicants should send a Cover Letter and a full CV (either in Greek or 
English) as pdf files by the 12th of December 2010 to Dr. Julius Georgiou 
(julio at ucy.ac.cy)
