One of the greatest challenges of modern science is to understand how the brain processes information in order to imitate its computing and learning capabilities (Artificial Intelligence, neuromorphic circuits, machine learning) and to compensate the brain failures with computational and technological tools (Closed-Loop Neurosciences, Brain Computer Interface).
The M2 Computational Neurosciences and Neuroengineering training program at Paris-Saclay University is based on experimental, computational and theoretical approaches, combining neurosciences, physics, applied mathematics and computer sciences at different scales (cell, network, behaviour) and different organizational levels (micro, meso- and macroscopic scales). Thanks to the reputation of the laboratories and research teams involved, the Master degree offers a very high level courses programme with a high international visibility.
Engineer jobs and PhD projects in academic, industrial laboratories, integration in R&D departments in France or abroad, represent the main opportunities in the following fields :
- Neuromorphic comptine tools,
- Cognitive and functional stimulation
- Visual, auditory, sensorimotor prostheses
- Technological tools for neurological and neurodegenerative pathologies
- Brain-machine interface
- Nerve signal processing
- Neuro-inspired learning
- Artificial intelligence
- Physiological bases of neurosciences
- Neural bases of perception
- Methods for measuring and stimulating neuronal activity
- Machine learning
- Dynamical systems and computational neuroscience
- Closed loop neurosciences
- Supervised project
