PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience (EU/UK candidates only)
MLearn Research Group (http://mlearn.lincoln.ac.uk/)
School of Computer Science
University of Lincoln
UK

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Machine Learning
(MLearn) Research Group at the University of Lincoln.

Projects involve the development and simulation of models of neuronal
networks (microcircuits) of learning and memory in animal and human
entorhinal cortex and hippocampus in health and disease (e.g. epilepsy,
schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease). A starting point of the project is the
paper by Cutsuridis V, et al. (2010). Encoding and retrieval in the
hippocampal CA1 microcircuit model. *Hippocampus*, 20(3): 423-446.

Student applicants should have excellent computational and numerical skills
and a very good first degree in computer science, engineering, maths,
physics, or a related discipline.

Successful student candidates are eligible for a research studentship award
from the University (GBP 14,553 per annum bursary plus payment of the
student fees).

This PhD studentship is ONLY OPEN to UK/EU students.

The ideal candidate should be highly motivated, technically skilled, a team
player and driven to push forward the development of the next generation of
deep associative memory neural-networks. Your written and spoken English
skills should be excellent. As a PhD student, you may also have the
opportunity to teach as a demonstrator in the School of Computer Science.

Research in Computer Science at the University of Lincoln has been
recognised as internationally excellent and world leading. The School of
Computer Science provides a very stimulating environment, offering a large
number of specialised and interdisciplinary seminars as well as general
training and researcher development opportunities. The University  is
situated in Lincoln, two hours northeast of London.

Please contact Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis (vcutsuridis at lincoln.ac.uk) or Prof.
Stefanos Kollias (skollias at lincoln.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.

If you’re interested to apply, please email your CV, a brief statement of
your scientific interests, and three reference letters to Dr. Vassilis
Cutsuridis (vcutsuridis at lincoln.ac.uk) <vcutsuridis at lincoln.ac.uk>

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis.
