Applications are invited for a doctoral student to develop and implement software and hardware probability models using spiking networks. The student should be well-versed in integrated circuit design, probability theory, learning algorithms, and spiking networks. The task will involve conception, simulation, layout and testing of analog and digital integrated circuits for the building blocks, computer simulations of spike-based learning systems using Bayesian models, and the subsequent transfer of these simulations to the hardware.
Salary is according to the guidelines of the Swiss National Science Foundation. Interested applicants, please send your CV, grades, statement of interest, and the names of at least 2 references to:
Dr. Shih-Chii Liu
(CLOSED) Applications are invited for the position of a doctoral student to study new computational methods for sound processing inspired by biological principles and using state-of-art machine learning and statistics tools. The goals are to develop algorithms for sound-feature extraction that are resistant to the presence of distractors and noise and to build a robust real-time implementation of a sound processing system.
We are seeking a motivated person with a strong background in physics and / or computer science or electrical engineering. The dosition is available immediately for individuals with a degree in related fields.
This work will be done in conjunction with the groups of Shih-Chii Liu and Richard Hahnloser at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich. For more information, visit http://www.ini.unizh.ch/~shih and http://www.ini.unizh.ch/~rich.
The Institute of Neuroinformatics is a multidisciplinary Institution affiliated with the Department of Physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and is located on the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich, in the city of Zurich.
