The Lab of Robert Legenstein at TU Graz is offering funded PhD positions 
in the areas Spiking Neural Networks/Machine Learning/Brain 
Models/Neuromorphic Hardware. A background in Machine Learning, Computer 
Science, or Mathematics is desirable, as well as evidence for excellent 
prior performance as a student.

Successful candidates will work on learning algorithms for spiking 
neural networks in the interdisciplinary consortium of the EU-funded 
project SYNCH. We will develop in this project learning algorithms for 
spiking neural networks (unsupervised, supervised, and reward-based). 
Hardware experts will implement these algorithms in cooperation with our 
team in a spiking neural network chip. The chip will be applied to 
various tasks within a brain-silicon hybrid system such as the 
classification of recorded brain network states.

Please send your application including a CV, any prior thesis and/or 
work by February 28 to
