Open position – PhD candidate

Computational modeling of biological processes: evolution, morphogenesis and behavior – Integrating evolution, morphogenesis and behaviour: a road towards embodied intelligence.

We are recruiting candidates for a PhD project that will be a part of a larger team effort in several collaborating labs in Europe. This effort aims at building a software platform that brings together evolution, morphogenesis and behaviour, a platform that is based on the principle of genome-physics interaction in shaping the morphogenesis and on the paradigm of indirect genotype-phenotype relationship evolvable and efficient encoding of the features of an organism. Such a platform will allow to model the coevolution of the shape of the multicellular organism “the body” and the way its behaviour is controlled “the mind”. We believe that truly embodied intelligence can only be possible when mind-body co-evolution is allowed.
