*Computational modelling of spiking neural network self-organization*
A PhD studentship is available in the lab of Dr Roman Bauer at the
Department of Computer Science at the University of Surrey (Guildford,
UK). The successful candidate wil use computer simulations to study
how spiking neural networks can give rise to function, such as
classification/prediction of spatio-temporal (visual or auditory)
signals. This will shine light on how neural circuits in the brain
operate and contribute to novel technologies for neurally inspired
This particular PhD studentship will be conducted in co-operation with
the BioDynaMo collaboration, where open-source code for the
neuroinformatics/computational neuroscience research community is
Successful applicants will become part of a vibrant PhD community and
will benefit from the strong research environment and high
international visibility of the Department. Its researchers publish
regularly in top conferences and journals and are renowned experts in
their fields, developing innovative, practical solutions to real world
problems. The Department has strong links with industry and active
collaborations with academic institutions worldwide.
*Background:* The ideal candidate will have experience in physics /
mathematics / computer science or similar. Proficiency in an
object-oriented programming language is required. Previous experience
in the modelling and simulation of spiking neural networks would be
*Funding:* Each PhD studentship comes with a stipend of £16,000 per
annum plus tuition fees covered for the duration of 3 years for UK/EU
candidates. International candidates are welcome to apply but will
need to cover the difference between the UK/EU and overseas fees.
More details including instructions for the application can be found
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact the lead supervisor Dr
Roman Bauer (r.bauer at surrey.ac.uk).
Application deadline is 21st of February, 2021.
