[Comp-neuro] POSTDOC Computational Neuroscience / AI, Nottingham

We are pleased to announce an opening for a postdoc in the lab of Mark 
van Rossum at the University of Nottingham.

In a EPSRC/ESRC grant on Human-like Computation, we are investigating in 
the computational role of sleep in cognitive processing and visual 
reasoning. In particular we are interested in how REM and slow-wave 
sleep phases map onto processing stages of neurally inspired AI, thereby 
trying to circumvent some limitations of current deep learning approaches.
This theoretical research is complemented by sleep experiments carried 
out by the group of Prof Penny Lewis in Cardiff.

The successful candidate will have a PhD (or submitted his/her thesis) 
and have research experience in either computational neuroscience or 
machine learning, or a combination of these.

This post is initially a fixed-term contract for a period of 12 months.
As Nottingham is currently creating a Centre for Computational Neuroscience,
long-term independent research positions will open up next year.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Mark van Rossum. 
Formal applications should be made via the website:

Mark van Rossum,
Professor, Schools of Psychology and Maths, U Nottingham
