Laatst aangepast : 25/11/2022

A new neuromorphic control laboratory is being launched from 1 January 2023 under the leadership of Professor Rodolphe Sepulchre. The laboratory will be part of the STADIUS Center for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing, and Data Analytics research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT) at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven). As part of this initiative, two postdoctoral positions are immediately available. They will be funded by the ERC Advanced Grant SpikyControl. STADIUS is an academic research center, with a research focus on mathematical engineering, where mathematical tools from numerical linear and multilinear algebra, statistics and optimization are used for applications of dynamical systems and control, signal processing, data modeling and analytics. The University of Leuven is one of Europe’s leading research universities, with English as the working language for research. It ranks among the top 50 universities worldwide in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021. Leuven lies just east of Brussels, at the heart of Europe.


We are looking for exceptionally talented individuals willing to contribute to a new area of research at the intersection of control engineering, neuromorphic circuit design, and neuroscience. Neuromorphic control takes inspiration of the spiking nature of control and communication in animal nervous systems to develop a novel generation of event-based control systems amenable to low-energy implementations of embedded control systems that integrate sensing and actuation and bypass the traditional interfaces between physical devices and digital automata.  



  • PhD in control or neuromorphic circuit design.
  • Research Experience and excellent publications in one or several of the following areas:  nonlinear control; nonlinear circuit modelign and analysis; neuromorphic circuit design; biophysical neuronal modelling; large-scale optimisation.
  • Excellent proficiency in the English language is required, as well as good communication skills, both oral and written.


You will have the opportunity to collaborate with a mix of researchers at the forefront of neuromorphic engineering in an international research environment. 

In particular you will be offered:

  • A high-level and exciting international research environment at one of Europe's top universities.
  • A strong involvement in an ERC research project with high international visibility.
  • A competitive salary.
  • The possibility to participate in local as well as international courses, workshops and conferences.
