 PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience/Machine learning
MLearn Research Group
School of Computer Science
University of Lincoln
UK

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the MLearn Research Group at
the University of Lincoln. Projects involve the development
and simulation of models of neurons and neuronal networks hippocampal
memory functions (Cutsuridis V, et al. (2010). Encoding and retrieval in
the hippocampal CA1 microcircuit model. *Hippocampus*, 20(3): 423-446)
<http://vassiliscutsuridis.com/docs/Journal_papers/CutCobGraHippo2010.pdf>
and/or applications of machine learning (deep learning) techniques for the
analysis of data. A description of our research interests and a list of
publications can be found on our webpage (http://mlearn.lincoln.ac.uk/).

Applicants should have excellent computational and numerical skills and a
very good first degree in computer science, biology, maths, physics,
neuroscience, or a related discipline. Successful candidates are eligible
for a research studentship award from the University (GBP 14,553 per annum
bursary plus payment of the student fees). This studentship is only open to
UK and 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 north 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 in this position and you would like to apply, please
send your CV, statement of research interests, three reference letters and
a photo to Dr. Vassilis Cutsuridis: vcutsuridis at lincoln.ac.uk

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis, so please apply as soon
as possible.


Kind regards,
Vassilis
