A postdoc  position is available at The BioRobotics 
Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy.


  The position is part of the Human Brain Project – SP10 
Neurorobotics. The work will be carried out under the 
supervision of Prof. Cecilia Laschi.  The initial 
appointment is for one year, funding is available for up 
to 2 years. Start date is 1st April 2016, or as soon as 
possible thereafter.

Position description
Goal: “Design and development of a sensory-motor 
coordination control system based on bio-inspired neural 
network for robots acting in simulated environment.”

Description: The main research activity concerns the 
development of brain-inspired computational algorithms for 
robot control. In particular, the objective of this 
research is the modelling and implementation in a neural 
simulator of bio-inspired neural networks for the control 
of robots performing sensory-motor tasks in simulated 
environment. The research activity requires in-depth 
knowledge, proven by previous research or professional 
activity, of neural computational models. The ideal 
candidate has also programming experience with C,C++, 
python, languages. Preference will be given to knowledge 
of spiking neural networks for robot control.

The postdoc will be enrolled in the Human Brain Project 
and in particular in the SP10-Neurorobotics
