Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (m/w/d) im Bereich Computational Neuroscience in Teilzeit

In der Arbeitsgruppe von Prof. Dr. Sen Cheng am Institut für Neuroinformatik der Ruhr-Universität Bochum ist baldmöglichst die Stelle eines wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiters (m/w/d) (TV-L E12/13, 19,915 Wochenstunden) im Bereich Computational Neuroscience in Teilzeit (19,915 Std./Woche) zu besetzen. Die Laufzeit der Stelle beträgt zwei Jahre.

Der erfolgreiche Bewerber (m/w/d) wird moderne Methoden des maschinellen Lernens auf Daten aus der Elektrophysiologie, der Psychophysiologie und der Neurobildgebung anwenden, um die Dynamik von Lernprozessen zu analysieren. Die experimentellen Daten werden durch andere Arbeitsgruppen im Rahmen der Zusammenarbeit im SFB 1280 Extinktionslernen (www.rub.de/sfb1280) gesammelt. Die Aufgaben umfassen:

  • Techniken des Verstärkungslernens (Reinforcement Learning) in Verbindung mit tiefen neuronalen Netzen (Deep Neural Networks, DNNs) dazu einsetzen, das Lernverhalten von Tieren zu modellieren. Die von den DNNs gelernten Repräsentationen sollen dann mit neuronalen Ableitungen verglichen werden.
  • die Aktivierung eines Neurons als Überwachungssignal einsetzen, um neuronale Modelle mit unterschiedlicher Komplexität zu trainieren und die jeweiligen Modell-Vorhersagen zu testen, indem Abweichungen von den jeweiligen Modellen mit auftrentenden Fehlern korreliert werden.

Der Umfang der Lehrverpflichtung richtet sich nach §3 der Lehrverpflichtungsverordnung NRW.

The Faculty of Psychology invites applicants for a W2 (Associate) Professorship in the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience with a focus on

The Neuronal Basis of Learning

beginning October 2018.

The candidate will conduct research and teaching in the area of cognitive neuroscience and cognitive science. This research position ideally focuses on experimental animal models of the neuronal processes of learning as well as approaches utilizing advanced analytical methods which enable the researcher to bridge the functional processes of learning and memory. Integration with the collaborative research centre (SFB) 1280 “Extinction Learning”, as well as interaction in other collaborative neuroscience, neuroinformatics, and cognitive science projects is desired. The Faculty of Psychology is known to be one of the strongest research faculties at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, with numerous international connections and collaborative collegiality.

Positive evaluation as a junior professor or equivalent academic achievement (e.g. Habilitation) or significant post-doctoral research contributions and teaching experience are as required as well as the willingness to participate in the self-governing bodies of the RUB.

We expect:

  • strong commitment to academic teaching at graduate and undergraduate level;
  • readiness to participate in interdisciplinary research;
  • willingness and ability to attract external funding;
