Applications are invited for one full-time postdoctoral research position funded by the ERC project BACKUP (https://r1.unitn.it/back-up/). The goal of the project is to develop a hybrid neural network by interfacing neuronal culture with photonic circuits. Instrumental to this goal is the simulation of the brain network functioning by using artificial intelligence. To this aim, we are currently seeking a highly motivated Postdoc with a PhD in Physics, with a background in complex science, data analysis, software development and machine learning.

The ideal candidate is highly motivated to participate in the development of the software for the hybrid neural network and curious to work in an interdisciplinary group where biologists develop neuronal culture and physicists photonic circuits.

 

Duration of the position: Three years starting from now or at a suitable date

Open position within the ERC-POC 2020 project ALPI

Within the ERC-AdG project BACKUP, we developed a concept for an integrated photonic chip to be used in an optical transceiver to mitigate transmission nonlinearities. The concept is going to be implemented and demonstrated in a proof-of-concept project financed by the European Commission. The project will start 1 November and will last 18 months. To perform this activity, we are looking for a telecom engineer/physicist with expertise in optical transceivers or optical communication to drive the development and to facilitate the validation (test) phase. A PhD degree is not mandatory but is a plus.
The suitable person will be hired with a research fellowship for 18 months and will join the BACKUP team in this project. The working place is the Nanoscience Laboratory of the Department of Physics of the University of Trento.

Starting data 1st November.
