I'm happy to announce the Architectures of Biological Learning Lab is Hiring!

I'm looking for exceptional candidates at the MSc, PhD or post-doc level to work on "Dendritic Algorithms for Perceptual Learning".  The project will employ simulations of pyramidal neurons and plasticity, and deep convolutional networks to study representation learning in the neocortex.  Prior experience with Python, NEURON, and/or PyTorch would be an asset.

This project will be undertaken in collaboration with Profs. Yoshua Bengio (UdeM, Mila), Roberto Araya (UdeM, CRCHUSJ), and Blake Richards (McGill, Mila).

Montreal, Canada is a thriving international hub for Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience research, with a booming AI industry.  It's where Donald O. Hebb originally formulated Hebbian Learning.  It's also a vibrant, funky, cosmopolitan yet affordable city of over 4 million, referred to as "Canada's Cultural Capital" by Monocle magazine.  In 2017, Montreal was ranked the 12th-most liveable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit in its annual Global Liveability Ranking, and the best city in the world to be a university student in the QS World University Rankings.
