Postdoctoral Researcher in Sensorimotor Neuroscience

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 31 Oct 2021

We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher with expertise in computational models of perception and action and an interest in probabilistic neurocomputing to participate in the NWO NWA ORC project 'Brain and AI for safe navigation' . The goal of this project is to advance our understanding of 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. You will work on computational models (optimal control, Bayesian, neural nets) of multisensory integration and sensorimotor control under uncertainty and their real-world applicability in applications such as drones and other autonomous vehicles. You will work in close collaboration with the Machine Learning group (Prof. Bohte) at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Amsterdam, and the Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience group (Prof. Pennartz) at the University of Amsterdam. Some management, mentoring and teaching related tasks will also be part of your responsibilities.
