Jobs

ERC Advanced Grant | Senior Research Associate
University of Bristol – School of Psychological Science

Salary | £38,017 – £42,792 per annum

This ERC funded project entitled “Generalisation in Mind and Machine” explores how well neural networks support human-like generalisation across a range of tasks. I am looking to hire a talented researcher with a PhD in psychology, computer science, engineering, or related fields who has experience working with neural networks to join our team.

In contrast with the large community of researchers focused on improving the performance of deep networks for applied reasons, the goal of this project is to explore what neural networks tell us about how the brain works. We are working on questions of generalisation in the domains of object identification, word identification, short-term memory, and games, amongst other areas.
