The Bio-Inspired Circuits and Systems (BICS) group at the University of
Groningen, Netherlands headed by Prof. Elisabetta Chicca is inviting
applications for PhD and PostDoc positions on physical models of biological

The positions will be embedded in a highly interdisciplinary, international
research group lead by Prof. Elisabetta Chicca, who recently started a new
group in the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) at the University of
Groningen. The BICS group aims to identify the principles of neural
computation and implement them in fully parallel and low-power neuromorphic
systems that offer the opportunity to overcome the limitations of
traditional digital architectures.

The successful candidate should have a background in physics, computer
sciences, electrical engineering, neurosciences or some related field. Some
modelling, programming or analog CMOS design experience is advantageous.

Applications will be considered until the positions are filled. The
application should include a cover letter stating the candidate’s research
interests and how these fit to the research conducted in the BICS group; a
CV outlining prior education, research experience, skills and publications;
reprints (if available); academic transcripts; and names of two referees.
Electronic submission is preferred (to be addressed to Prof. Elisabetta
Chicca, e.chicca <e.chicca at rug.nl>ATrug.nl <e.chicca at rug.nl>).
