Faculty Position in Neuro-inspired Computation/AI, Machine Learning, and Neuromorphic Engineering
How do human and machine intelligence arise? The International Research Center for Neurointelligence (IRCN) at the University of Tokyo was launched in October 2017 to tackle this challenge over the next ten years under the World Premier International (WPI) Research Initiative of Japan. IRCN researchers will understand emergent principles of neural circuit development to inspire next-generation neural computation for artificial intelligence and novel therapies for mental illness.
IRCN has now open positions for highly motivated Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellows and Open-Rank Faculty (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor). You will have access to our world-class technologies and facilities, extensive global collaboration networks, and vibrant international environment. In addition to independent research, successful candidates will endeavor to bridge disciplines as key computation members in our highly collaborative Team Science ecosystem. Current research themes include attention, prediction, intrinsic activity, social intelligence, autism, psychosis risk, multi-scale imaging, and critical period mechanisms. Senior postdoctoral fellows will have scientific independence and a career path to positions in industry and academia. We strongly encourage applications from international and female candidates to further enhance our diverse environment. The official language of IRCN is English and bilingual support is provided for life in cosmopolitan Tokyo.
