Dear colleagues,

A PhD/postdoc position in the area of hybrid neuromorphic systems is
available at the Cognitronics and Sensor Systems Group (
http://www.ks.cit-ec.uni-bielefeld.de), Center of Excellence Cognitive
Interaction Technology at Bielefeld University. Combining concepts from
biology, physics, electrical engineering and computer science, the research
will focus on new methods for the development of hybrid systems, coupling
living neurons and neuromorphic systems.

In close cooperation with researchers from the different domains you will
assist in establishing a new collaborative research group targeting hybrid
neuromorphic systems. Tasks include the analysis of new methods for
electrode/neuron interfacing, evaluation of the energy efficiency of living
cells, and the realization of small neural networks based on memristors. In
addition to research, 20% of the position is dedicated to teaching in the
respective areas.

For the positions we look for candidates with a M.Sc. degree in computer
science, electrical engineering, physics, or biology with a technical focus
and a PhD or significant experience in one of the areas neuromorphic
systems, nanoelectronics, neurobiology, or biological cybernetics. Fluency
in English – written and oral – as well as good German skills are required.

We offer a position (100% German salary level: TV-L E13, limited to one
year) to do research in a stimulating environment with excellent
facilities. Your application should include: motivation letter, CV, copy of
degrees, and transcript of grades. Details can be found at

Please submit your application in a single pdf file via e-mail to
cheidbrede at cit-ec.uni-bielefeld.de before 20.04.2017.

Best regards,

JProf. Dr. Elisabetta Chicca
