Ref 3743/20, Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Research Fellow in Neuromorphic Hardware, International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems
The International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems (ICNS) is a centre within the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development. The Centre is explicitly interdisciplinary, by combining electrical engineering, computer science, signal processing, and neuroscience. ICNS’s focus is on developing Neuromorphic Engineering solutions to existing problems.
The Centre is seeking an outstanding researcher to complement and strengthen investigations on the development of analogue and digital neuromorphic hardware and systems. The successful applicant will be involved in the design of smart neuromorphic sensors, such as silicon cochleas, retinas, and tactile sensors. Furthermore, the design of hardware to perform neural processing with spiking and non-spiking neural networks will be a focus of this position. The position will complement existing research in neuromorphic algorithms and signal processing and strengthen our hardware design efforts.
The successful candidate will be a member of strong research team, and will be involved in supervision of Honours, Masters, and PhD students. We are seeking an energetic, forward thinking, dynamic, and innovative scholar to take up this postdoctoral research fellowship. The successful applicant is expected to be developing a strong international standing and research reputation, based on an excellent research background in this field.
