Research Scientist Neuro-Robotics (MiCRAM)
Fixed term – 24 months
£27,466 - £32,796 per annum
Ref: CTR016/1436

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.
