Dear Colleagues,

Starting from Fall 2019, the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland will
host a 4-year interdisciplinary project

Bio-Inspired Artificial Neural Networks

The broad aim of the project is to put together Neuroscience and Machine
Learning research and gather insight from the brain analyzed over a wide
range of scales in order to develop novel machine learning architectures
and algorithms. The project comprises Machine Learning, Cognitive and
Physics groups and in addition three new groups will be formed: a low level
neuroscience group, a Bio Data Science group and a more technical computer
science group.

We are looking in particular for candidates for a Group Leader of the Bio
Data Science group.

The main aims of the Bio Data Science group located at the Faculty of
Physics is to perform extensive analyses of massive fMRI data (both
in-house and publicly available), possibly also of other modalities like
diffusive MRI or MEG/EEG. These analyses will be targeted at i) developing
machine learning based diagnostic algorithms, ii) extracting insights from
data on connectivity/dynamical properties of neuronal networks, iii)
comparisons with artificial neural networks.

In addition, the group is expected to closely cooperate with the Physics
group of the project on testing physics motivated hypothesis and
implementing machine learning architectures. Of course, the group is very
much welcome to pursue also other goals related to the project
"Bio-Inspired Artificial Neural Networks".

The Leader of the Bio Data Science group should therefore have expertise in
machine learning as well as experience/knowledge on dealing with the
specific peculiarities of the fMRI datasets like preprocessing
requirements/artifacts as well as general knowledge about other modalities.

The position is for 3 years. Deadline for application is 23rd August. The
call with details is on the website http://bionn.matinf.uj.edu.pl/.

If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me (romuald.janik at gmail.com).

Best regards,
Romuald Janik
