We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to continue research at QUT on the Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development (AOARD)-funded research project "An infinitely scalable learning and recognition network".

The role involves developing neuroscience-based machine learning systems to create highly compressible and scalable learning and recall systems for autonomous systems. In particular, we are modelling the multi-scale, periodic encoding properties of grid cells found in the mammalian brain to create sub-linear scaling mapping and localization systems, and then expanding these systems into other sensory domains including sound. The project has collaborative partners at Harvard and Uni Notre Dame in neuroscience, computer vision and machine learning.

The role requires strong mathematical, machine learning, computer vision and large dataset processing skills, as well as paper writing and oral presentation experience.

This appointment will be offered on a fixed- term, full-time basis for 1 (one) year. Pending further funding outcomes, the appointment may be extendable by another year.

Apply and Enquiries

To express an interest in the role or for any enquiries, please e-mail michael.milford at qut.edu.au<mailto:michael.milford at qut.edu.au> with the subject line "infinitemapping" and include:

- a one page cover letter detailing your interest in and experience for the role, and the earliest date you could feasibly start,
- a detailed resume including details of past research, and
- a link to your Google Scholar profile.

Applications close January 15th 2018.

Best regards,

Michael Milford
Professor of Robotics, Queensland University of Technology
