About the Project
You will join the exciting interdisciplinary environment of Sussex Neuroscience (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/sussexneuroscience/index) and the Centre for Computational Neuroscience and Robotics (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/ccnr/), within which you will work in the groups of Profs Nowotny (http://users.sussex.ac.uk/~tn41/) and Kemenes (http://www.sussex.ac.uk/profiles/1469). Colleagues in the groups work on diverse topics ranging from learning and memory in lymnaea stagnalis (pond snail) to the “Brains on Board project” (http://brainsonboard.co.uk/), seeking to emulate bee brains as robotic controllers for navigation. The University of Sussex provides an extremely rich research environment and training opportunities for doctoral researchers. The University is situated in Downs National Park at the edge of the vibrant coastal city of Brighton, known for its cultural richness, tolerance and diversity. The city offers a multitude of cultural activities, a colourful nightlife and is only an hour on the train away from the metropole of London.
