The research group of Robert Legenstein at the Graz University of 
Technology in Austria ( http://www.igi.tugraz.at/legi/ ) offers a

*PhD position*

for research on computation an learning in networks of spiking neurons,

with application to neuromorphic hardware with memristive devices. The 
position is funded by the chist-era project PNEUMA ( short description 
<http://www.igi.tugraz.at/legi/PNEUMA_description.pdf> ). The project 
runs for three years.

The successful candidate is expected to study novel models of 
probabilistic computation in spiking neural networks in theory and 
computer simulations.
See, e.g., Buesing et al., 2011 
<http://www.igi.tugraz.at/Abstracts/BuesingETAL:11>, Legenstein and 
Maass, 2011 
<http://www.jneurosci.org/content/31/30/10787.full.pdf+html>, Nessler et 
al., 2010 <http://www.igi.tugraz.at/maass/psfiles/191.pdf> for related work.
Within the PNEUMA project, these models will be implemented by other 
project partners in neuromorphic hardware with memristive synaptic devices.

Applicants should send their CV, statement of interest, and pdf's of 
relevant publications (e.g. master thesis) to Robert Legenstein
robert.legenstein at igi.tugraz.at

All applications received before September 9th, 2011, will be given full
consideration, but applications will be expected until the position is
