The Machine Learning group at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam invites applicants for a

Post-doc position (2 or 3 years) in the area of Spiking Neural Networks.

We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher with expertise in the area of spiking neural networks and an interest in probabilistic computing.

Job description
The postdoc candidate will participate in the recently awarded NWO NWA ORC project "Acting under uncertainty". The goal of this project is to advance our understanding how humans are able to act in complex and uncertain circumstances, and how such knowledge can be applied to smooth our interaction with emerging autonomous vehicles. The whole project encompasses a broad spectrum of academic, industrial and societal partners and includes a large group of researchers. The postdoc position will advance state-of-the-art in spiking neural networks and their real-world applicability in applications like drones and other autonomous vehicles, and close collaboration is foreseen with labs at TU Delft, IMEC NL, and NLR. Some project management related tasks will also be part of the candidate's responsibilities.


Candidates are required to have a PhD degree in computer science, mathematics, electrical and electronic engineering, or related fields. Candidates are expected to have a demonstrable interest in bio-inspired neural networks and probabilistic approaches, and to have an excellent command of English.
