Dr.scient.-position:
Neuro-models of development and learning of movement behavior

Candidate background:
B.Sc./M.Sc. in computer science, preferably experienced
with neural network models and with extra knowledge in
movement science, neuroscience (anatomy/physiology) or
behavioral sciences.

Project:
The candidate will join a group of computer scientists,
psychologists, movement scientists and philosophers
working on unsupervised development and learning of behavior.
The experimental paradigm includes three elements:
1) Models/simulations of body (skeletons/muscles) and
environment: http://www.radata.demon.co.uk/
2) Interactive, closed-environment-loop connectionist models
(neural networks) and computer simulations.
3) Hebbian learning rules (unsupervised learning)

The candidate is expected to work towards a dr.scient.-degree
at our Department.

Practical stuff:
The stipend is for 4 years, paying approximately $30.000 pr. year
