Job Announcement: Research Scientist Neuro-Robotics
School of Computing & Technology, University of Sunderland
Research Scientist Neuro-Robotics (MiCRAM)
Fixed term – 24 months
£27,466 - £32,796 per annum
At Sunderland, our focus in this EPSRC project is to develop and
validate biomimetic robots, computational neural models and a
neuroscience database for the development of a biologically realistic
model of auditory processing (MICRAM project). Your job will
involve the development of a biomimetic robot that uses neural
computational modeling to simulate the auditory midbrain.
You should be educated to PhD level or possess equivalent research
experience and a proven ability in research and publication. A
degree in a computing discipline is essential and knowledge of
biomimetic robotics is desirable. Experience with GENESIS or similar
neural modelling and knowledge of the auditory system in mammals and
of bioacoustics would be advantageous.
