Dear Colleagues,

We are recruiting PhD students for the Fall of 2021 in the Department of Cognitive Sciences and the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine. Students will have the opportunity to work in the Cognitive Anteater Robotics Laboratory, which conducts research in assistive robotics, computational neuroscience, machine learning, neural networks, neuromorphic engineering and neurorobotics. Applicants should have a strong mathematical and computer programming background, as well as good communication skills.

Current Federally funded projects include:
·      Artificial Intelligence for Novelty Detection
·      Cognitive Maps in Rats, Robots and Men
·      Lifelong Learning Machines
·      Sparse Predictive Coding for Efficient Visual Navigation
