[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Two robotics posts at the University of Sheffield, UK
We are seeking motivated *biomimetic roboticists *and/or computational
neuroscientists to help develop and extend a systems level computational
model of the mammalian brain architecture and to evaluate this model within
the control system of animal-like robots. Up to two posts are available.
The positions allow a high degree of autonomy and include considerable
scope for creativity and international collaboration with world-class
scientists and engineers. The work extends from developing novel models of
memory systems on the mammalian brain, to embedding and testing these
models within specialised neuromorphic hardware onboard biomimetic robots
including the animal-like companion robot MiRo and a novel whiskered robot
developed in partnership with Bristol Robotics Lab. Successful candidates
should have a PhD in computational neuroscience, brain-based/bio-inspired
robotics, or in related discipline, with experience in systems neuroscience
and neural network modelling.
