Research Scientist Neuro-Robotics (MiCRAM)
Fixed term – 24 months
27,466 - 32,796 pounds 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.
