Tue Sep 9 23:29:09 CEST 2008
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
