*Job position: *

*Postdoctoral Associate in Computational Neuroscience *

*Boston University Neuromorphics Laboratory*

*http://nl.bu.edu <http://nl.bu.edu>*



Be at the forefront of designing the next generation neural models to power
mobile robots. The Boston University Neuromorphics Lab (nl.bu.edu), working
with NASA and industrial partners, is researching cutting-edge neuromorphic
models and will help translate this technology into real products for
consumers and businesses.



This postdoctoral associate position has the duration of 1 year renewable
(renewal pending availability of funding). The candidate will be working in
close collaboration with computational neuroscientists and industrial
partners to design and implement large-scale neural system to allow an
autonomous agent (virtual and robotic) to perceive and act in real and
virtual environments.



Responsibilities include the design and developments of
biologically-inspired modules for perception, navigation, planning, and
motor control. It is expected that the successful applicant will work
toward developing 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.
Additionally, the candidate should be able to work with our partners to
create demonstrations of the technology in mobile robotic platforms.


*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 in
C/C++, Java, or C# is essential. Competence in analytical methods (linear
algebra, elementary geometry, differential equations, probability theory)
is preferred. Experience with parallel programming and virtual environment
is a big plus.
