Apologies for cross-posting

A PostDoc position is available at Chemnitz University of Technology in the
Department of Computer Science within the Professorship of Artificial
Intelligence. He or she should have a Ph.D. in computer science or related
fields. Exceptionally, we can also consider Ph.D. candidates in case of
extremely good qualifications.

The candidate is expected to contribute to research in auto-tuning
mechanisms on different hardware platforms to implement biologically
inspired neural networks. Thus, a very good experience in parallel
computing is absolutely required. Further, the candidate should have an
interest in computational neuroscience, particularly at the implementation
level of large-scale neural networks. Prior experience with neural
simulation tools, e.g. ANNarchy (Vitay, Dinkelbach, Hamker, 2015), NEST or
Brian, is advantageous. Good English language skills are necessary. German
is initially not required.

Funding is obtained from a research project “Auto-tuning for neural
simulations on different parallel hardware" from the German research
foundation (DFG), coordinated by Dr. Vitay and Prof. Dr. Hamker. The salary
is according to German standards (E 13 TV-L). An association with the CRC
1410 Hybrid Societies (https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/hybrid-societies/) is
conceivable. The position is initially until 30.06.2021, but extensions are
possible. The starting date is May 2020 or soon thereafter.

Chemnitz is the third-largest city of the state of Saxony and close to
scenic mountains. Major cities nearby are Leipzig and Dresden with a rich
tradition of music and culture.

Applications should be sent by email (preferably in PDF format) to (
fred.hamker at informatik.tu-chemnitz.de). The deadline is on 15.03.2020,
but applications will be considered until the position is filled. In
addition to a CV, the candidate should provide a detailed description of
his/her experience in parallel computing.
