A position as postdoctoral fellow in the field of neuromorphic computing and artificial neural networks is available at the research group lead by Professor Mario Lanza at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), in Saudi Arabia. The selected candidate will work on the implementation of artificial neural networks and machine learning algorithms using emerging electronic devices, such crossbar arrays of memristors (among others). Commensurate salary, housing in a gorgeous campus, medical insurance, access to cutting-edge facilities, and integration in an experienced group will be provided.
Duties and responsibilities
Characterization of the figures-of-merit of electronic synapses and neurons.
Modification of device parameters for synaptic signal optimization.
Circuit design for programming crossbar arrays of memristors.
Circuit design for synaptic and neuronal signal processing.
Artificial neural networks simulation and training using Phython and Matlab.
Mentoring master and PhD students in the group (optional).
Postdoctoral fellow contract renewable up to 3 years.
Commensurate salary depending on skills (note that in Saudi Arabia there is no income tax).
