An exceptional opportunity for a dual award PhD position in Neuromorphic olfaction is open for EU/UK candidates at the University of Hertfordshire, UK, that includes a year abroad at Western Sydney University, Australia. The successful candidate will obtain a PhD degree from both institutions. 

We offer an exciting 3-year project in Neuromorphic computing under joint supervision of Dr Michael Schmuker (UHERTS), and Dr André van Schaik (WSU). The first and third year of the programme will be spent in the Biocomputation research group at UH, with the second year spent at the International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems, led by André van Schaik (WSU). 

The successful candidate has the unique opportunity to join two vibrant and research-driven teams at opposite ends of the world and carry home two PhD awards. 

The position comes with a bursary of £15,009 per year. Airfare to and from WSU in Australia is covered, too. The PhD is due to start in October 2019.

EU/UK candidates with an exceptional interest in at least one of Neuromorphic computing, Event-based data processing, and chemical sensing should get in touch informally with Dr. Michael Schmuker <mailto:m.schmuker at biomachinelearning.net> by email as soon as possible. 

Shortlisting will begin on 21st July 2019.
