NCS Research Projects

by Giacomo Indiveri last modified Feb 28, 2012 12:51 PM
Research projects being investigated by the NCS group

We conduct interdisciplinary research at the interface between engineering, neuro-science, computer-science, and biology. We are interested in answering basic research questions that are related to the way neural circuits carry out computation, and at the same time in developing a new generation of computing technologies based on hybrid analog/digital neuromorphic circuits and CMOS VLSI technology.

Our funded projects are supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the EU FP7 program, as well as the  European Space Agency.

We also work on running longer-term projects which offer possibilities for intern-ships, Master thesis and Semesterarbeit projects.


Funded projects currently under investigation

Long-term (always running) projects


Internships, theses, student projects, and undergraduate research opportunities

UZH - ETH Zurich students:

If you are interested in working on one of the projects listed above, there  is always the possibility to define sub-projects and objectives suitable for Master theses and Semesterarbeits. Please contact Giacomo Indiveri directly, and arrange a meeting with him.

International students:

Unfortunately we don't have any instruments to provide financial support for intern-ships or thesis projects. However, if you find alternative sources of funding or can provide your own financial support, we can define student/thesis projects, provide the necessary lab and office space, and supervise your work. Given the experimental nature of the work being carried out in our lab, involving the design or use of custom analog VLSI devices, it only makes sense to consider project durations of at least 6 months.

Please make sure you can demonstrate your financial support capabilities (mainly for VISA issues) before contacting Giacomo Indiveri about this.
