The Boston University Neuromorphics Lab (http://nl.bu.edu/) has an
immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The position is
funded a one-year position, which is renewable pending availability of
future funds.

DUTIES:  The position involves working in close collaboration with
computational neuroscientists and industrial partners to design and
implement a large-scale neural system
<http://nl.bu.edu/research/projects/>to allow an autonomous agent to
perceive and act in a virtual environment.
Planned developments include biologically-inspired modules for perception,
navigation, planning, and motor control. The successful applicant will help
to develop one or more of these modules. Strong emphasis will be put on
learning, adaptation, autonomy and on models that abide to constraints of
parallelism and locality in order to allow scalable implementation.

QUALIFICATIONS: Successful candidates should have a PhD in computational
neuroscience, computer vision, machine learning or a related field, with a
strong background in computational modeling. Proficiency in programming is
essential (e.g. Scala, java, C/C++, C#, and/or Matlab), and competence in
analytical methods (linear algebra, elementary geometry, differential
equations, probability theory) is preferred. Experience with parallel
programming is a big plus.
