Reference number: REF 216

Application deadline: 3 April 2016

Our Computer Engineering group of the Neuroscience Department of the Erasmus Medical Center, the Netherlands, is conducting research on high-performance, large-scale simulations of the human cerebellum. Depending on the neuronal-network size and the modeling accuracy desired, brain-model simulations can rapidly grow to be become exascale order-of-magnitude applications for HPC platforms. By capitalizing on the long-standing expertise and track record of the Neuroscience Department, the overall objective of the research performed is dual: to re-construct in hardware (‘in silico’) the human cerebellar cortex and – in the process – to develop novel tools for the automatic, seamless and fast simulation of any brain-model ensembles on popular HPC platforms, such as FPGAs, NVidia GP-GPUs, Intel Xeon Phis and Maxeler Dataflow Engines. The selected candidates are expected to work on these topics.

This research will be part of the VINEYARD Horizon 2020 EU-funded project (www.vineyard-h2020.eu). Collaborative partners are the Delft University of Technology, the Chalmers University of Technology and the National Technical University of Athens.

 Reference number: REF 116

Application deadline: 3 April 2016

Our Computer Engineering group of the Neuroscience Department of the Erasmus Medical Center, the Netherlands, is conducting research on next-generation implantable medical devices (IMDs). IMDs are resource-constrained embedded systems with unique functional and quality requirements. The overall objective of the research performed is to deliver techniques at the implant architecture, compiler, system and communication level for achieving by-design IMD security, privacy and fault tolerance. The selected candidates are expected to work on one or more of these intertwining subjects.

This research will be part of the SHARCS Horizon 2020 EU-funded project (www.sharcs-project.eu). Collaborative partners are the Delft University of Technology, the Chalmers University of Technology and the National Technical University of Athens.

The research group has a solid track record in contributing to design principles of high-performance and low-power embedded computing systems. Erasmus MC is a partner in the HiPEAC European Network of Excellence and an official collaborator in the H2020 Flagship: Human Brain Project (HBP - www.humanbrainproject.eu). Where HBP works on fully simulating the cerebral cortex, Erasmus MC is adding in accurate simulations of the cerebellar cortex.
