Faculty position in AI and Neuroscience
Department  of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK

Applications are invited for a University Lectureship (~ US Assistant Professor equivalent) at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Neuroscience (including Cognitive Science) in the Computational and Biological Learning Lab (cbl.eng.cam.ac.uk). CBL combines expertise in computational neuroscience and cognitive science (Mate Lengyel, Guillaume Hennequin, Rich Turner) and machine learning (Zoubin Ghahramani, Carl Rasmussen, Rich Turner, Jose Miguel Hernandez-Lobato). We particularly encourage applicants who would complement our current research activities. The successful applicant’s research should use AI-inspired computational and theoretical approaches to neuroscience (including computational cognitive science), or conversely, biological intelligence-inspired approaches to AI (with an emphasis on machine learning-based approaches), and may combine these approaches with behavioural experiments. This is a linked post offered in association with Wolfson College, and the successful applicant will be elected to an Official Fellowship of the College.

Informal enquiries are welcome to:

Mate Lengyel <m.lengyel at eng.cam.ac.uk>
Guillaume Hennequin <g.hennequin at eng.cam.ac.uk>
Richard Turner <ret26 at cam.ac.uk>

- Closing date of applications: Friday, 1 February 2019
- Interviews: March-April 2019
- Decision expected: April 2019
