The Center for Large-Scale Integration and Optimization of Networks (CLION) at University of Memphis invites applications for a postdoc researcher position for research conducted at CLION to support development of mathematical models of physical intelligence, in the framework of the US Defense Advanced Project Research Agency (DARPA) Project on Physical Intelligence (PI). The initial appointment is for a 3 month probation period, which will be extended to a full year in case of successful work and demonstrated progress towards the project goals.
Principle responsibilities include the development of neuropercolation models of the cortex using Random Cellular Automata; rigorous mathematical analysis of phase transitions in a hierarchy of neuropercolation models based on Freeman K-set theory. In addition, the candidate will participate in team work to accomplish various aspects of the Physical Intelligence neuropercolation project, including the demonstration of emergent intelligence in a far from equilibrium themodynamic system when implemented on a suitable hardware platform that enables a goal-oriented intentional system to interact with its environment toward its goals.
Requirements include PhD in applied mathematics or related field with demonstrated experience in mathematical modeling and analysis of complex dynamical networks, preferably including an interest in brain dynamics. Excellent verbal and written skills in English are required. Special Conditions: US citizenship or residency is desired.
Screening begins immediately, and it remains open until filled. Applicants are invited to submit CV, statement of interest, and list of 3 references to Ms. Vernisa Hazlett email@example.com. For further information on CLION and the PI project please visit http://clion.memphis.edu.
