■Researcher position at ATR Brain Labs., Kyoto, Japan

Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR), Kyoto, Japan, has an open researcher position in brain-inspired computer vision.  Our institute has a long tradition in computational neuroscience and has recently been promoting research of computational modeling of primate visual systems based on hierarchical learning theory (project outline: http://www.cns.atr.jp/~hosoya/project_outline.pdf).  We seek for applicants who are interested in working on brain-inspired machine learning algorithms for vision in collaboration with our computational neuroscientists for vision.  

Applicants must have a Ph.D. or be near completion in a relevant field.  The applicants are required to show an expertise in machine learning research for visual processing as well as a strong interest in neuroscience.  The successful candidate will be asked to propose and autonomously work on
(1) a research topic using an original method that has a realistic applicability (e.g, image/video analysis) and a connection to primate vision, and
(2) a research topic that applies, to a realistic problem (e.g., image/video analysis), computational models of primate vision developed in our institute.
