Applications are invited for the following post:

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Computational Modelling of Decision Making at the University of Ulster

There is an important practical need and challenge for autonomous systems to perform multisensory decision-making and report decision uncertainty. This project aims to develop a neural computational model of decision-making capable of performing such tasks. The model will be tested under various complex simulated environments and implemented in reconfigurable and programmable hardware for real-time applications, hence bridging from basic neuroscience research to engineering applications. This project is available in the University of Ulster's Computer Science Research Institute (in collaboration with University of Wolverhampton) and is tenable in the Faculty of Computing and Engineering at the Magee Campus. The successful applicant will utilize knowledge in computational neuroscience, embedded systems and machine learning. The postholder will join an externally funded multidisciplinary research team, and will benefit from the expertise of computational neuroscience, cognitive robotics and neuroengineering at Ulster and Wolverhampton.

All applicants should hold or about to obtain a Ph.D. degree in Computing, Engineering, Computational Neuroscience, Computational Sciences, Neuroscience, Mathematics, Physics, Cognitive Science, or a related discipline. Applicants must be highly motivated and willing to pursue research and develop skills and knowledge across disciplines.

The application process for the post is opened with a closing date for applications on the 11th May 2015, and interviews will be held shortly after. The successful applicant is expected to be able to begin work in June 2015. Further details can be found at:
