Two postdoctoral positions are available in the lab of Nathan Urban at 
Carnegie Mellon University to work as part of a DARPA-funded project 
(REALNOSE http://www.darpa.mil/dso/solicitations/baa07-21mod11.htm) on 
analysis of data from arrays of biologically-based chemical sensors. 
This position is part of a large multi-investigator project involving 
collaboration with biologists, engineers and computer scientists at 
several institutions. The ideal candidates would posses either

1)  a Ph.D. in computer science, statistics or engineering and have 
experience with analyusis of high-dimensional data, including the use of 
supervised and unsupervised learning techniques such as nonparametric 
regression, clustering, and visualization.
2) a Ph. D. in neuroscience, applied math or physics and have experience 
in developing spiking neuron and/or network simulations and have some 
familiarity with sensory systems.

The positions offer an excellent training environment and excellent 
opportunities for collaboration with others in computational 
neuroscience, including those at Carnegie Mellon University and the 
University of Pittsburgh.

Interested candidates should send a CV, statement of research experience 
and interests, and names and contact information for 3 references by 
e-mail to Dr. Nathan Urban, Department of Biological Sciences, Carnegie 
Mellon University, 4400 Fifth Ave. Pittsburgh PA 15213.  e-mail
