The field of research involves the development of
the Frankfurt Cognitive System plattform for an
autonomous general-purpose cognitive system based
on a meta-network of self-adapting generalized
neural networks.
The candidates should have a Diploma/M.S. in physics,
cognitive sciences or informatics with an excellent
academic background and good computational skills.
Experience or strong interest in the fields of
artificial or biological cognitive systems are
