Post-Doc Opportunity in Neurobiology, Cognition, and Behavior
Research: Decoding/forecasting individual and group movement patterns in
complex (urban) landscape environments through multi-agent modeling
incorporating multi-modal sensory perception/integration, cognition, and
decision-making at the individual level.  Organization: U.S. Army Engineer
Research & Development Center (Environmental Lab), Cognitive Ecology &
Ecohydraulics Team.  Salary: $55,000-65,000 / yr.  Location: Portland,
Oregon.  Length: ~3 yrs (Spring 2009 - September 2011).  Degree Required:
Ph.D. or equivalent.  Skills Required: one or more of the following at the
individual (human or animal) level: neurobiology, mathematical psychology,
quantitative analysis of behavior, cognitive ecology, signal processing,
time-series forecasting, intelligent software agents, game theory,
multi-modal sensory integration, cognitive decision making.  Intellectual
Interests: perception, cognition, decision-making,
individual/group/collective behavior, real-world social/asocial environments,
math/algorithms, modeling.  Project Details: This basic research project is
focused on developing new theory and algorithms necessary to support
development of a multi-agent simulation tool for decoding/forecasting the
movement patterns of individuals and small groups in highly complex urban
environments.  The Post-Doc will lead research and development of new theory
and algorithms integrating the latest knowledge in multi-modal sensory
perception/integration, cognition, learning, and adaptation into intelligent
software agents that will form an Eulerian-Lagrangian-agent method (ELAM)
model (see http://el.erdc.usace.army.mil/emrrp/nfs/elam.html ).  The Post-Doc
is expected to be adept at learning and integrating knowledge from a wide
variety of scientific disciplines.
Contact: Interested candidates should email (w/subject header: "Terrain ELAM
Post-Doc") a 2-page version of your curriculum vitae to
