Group Leaders

3-year postdoc position in machine learning with Prof. Laurenz Wiskott at the Institute for Neural Computation in Bochum, Germany

We are looking for an outstanding post-doctoral researcher to work at the intersection of model-based reinforcement learning and representation learning, e.g. for navigation and action planing in video game environments. It is envisaged that the postdoc builds up his/her own independent research agenda including grant proposals but maintains close interaction with the groups by Prof. Tobias Glasmachers and Prof. Laurenz Wiskott.

Student Assistant - Quality Assurance of Scientific Software

We are looking for a highly motivated student to help the computational neuroscience group at the INI improve code documentation and testing of scientific software. For instance, we are in the process of implementing a CI/CD pipeline within Gitlab to run automated tests. The successful candidate will be expected to configure this system, maintain it, run unit tests on a Docker-based runner and make sure that projects conform to the group’s quality requirements.

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
