    Applications are invited for the above posts to work as a Research Fellow/Research Associate/Research Software Engineer/Senior Research Software Engineer on the SpiNNaker project. The SpiNNaker architecture is optimised to support the simulation of simple (point-like) neurons and their connections (or synapses). This architecture now has a world-wide user base, drawn to a reliable and flexible platform for real-time neural network simulation; this community is comprised of both traditional computational neuroscientists and also scientists and engineers from application areas such as robotics.

    The position is funded by the EU Flagship “Human Brain Project” which aims to provide researchers worldwide with ICT tools and mathematical models to assist with understanding the function of the human brain and for emulating its computational capabilities. Although the HBP project itself is expected to run to 31 March 2023, the current funding to support the posts advertised is until 31 March 2018.
