PhD Position in Computational Neuroscience (EU/UK candidates only)
MLearn Research Group (http://mlearn.lincoln.ac.uk/)
School of Computer Science
University of Lincoln

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Machine Learning (MLearn) Research Group at the University of Lincoln.

Projects involve the development and simulation of models of neuronal networks (microcircuits) of learning and memory in animal and human entorhinal cortex and hippocampus in health and disease (e.g. epilepsy, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease). A starting point of the project is the paper by Cutsuridis V, et al. (2010). Encoding and retrieval in the hippocampal CA1 microcircuit model. Hippocampus, 20(3): 423-446.<http://vassiliscutsuridis.com/docs/Journal_papers/CutCobGraHippo2010.pdf> <http://mlearn.lincoln.ac.uk>

Student applicants should have excellent computational and numerical skills and a very good first degree in computer science, engineering, maths, physics, or a related discipline.

Successful student candidates are eligible for a research studentship award from the University (GBP 14,553 per annum bursary plus payment of the student fees).

This PhD studentship is ONLY OPEN to UK/EU students.

The ideal candidate should be highly motivated, technically skilled, a team player and driven to push forward the development of the next generation of deep associative memory neural-networks. Your written and spoken English skills should be excellent. As a PhD student, you may also have the opportunity to teach as a demonstrator in the School of Computer Science.

Research in Computer Science at the University of Lincoln has been recognised as internationally excellent and world leading. The School of Computer Science provides a very stimulating environment, offering a large number of specialised and interdisciplinary seminars as well as general training and researcher development opportunities. The University  is situated in Lincoln, two hours northeast of London.
