Please distribute the following announcement,

PhD on biologically based robotics

We have 2 PhD positions in the field of robotics, biomimetics and
computational neuroscience in the context of a EU founded project
(NeuroCHEM: Biologically inspired computation for chemical sensing),
starting now. This is an offer for full-time research positions. The
selected candidates will work in a multidiciplinary environment at the
Synthetic Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems (SPECS) group at
the Institute of Audiovisual Studies (IUA) at the University Pompeu
Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.
Candidates are expected to have a strong mathematical background
(engineering, physics, mathematics, etc), and an interest in
neuroscience, neural networks, biologically inspired technology and
Experience with electronics and robotics, and strong programming
skills (C++, matlab) will be appreciated. Candidates should be
autonomous, creative and able to work in teams in a multidisciplinary
environment. As part of their work, the candidates are expected to
write high quality scientific papers, and to be involved in the
management of the project (deliverables, reports, etc). Therefore a
good written and spoken level of English.
