The School of Computer Science and the Center for the Neural Basis of
Cognition (CNBC) at Carnegie Mellon University are jointly soliciting
applications for junior faculty candidates in computational
neuroscience. Candidates for this tenure-track position should be ready
to undertake a research program focusing on the theoretical analysis of
computational properties of neural systems and/or behaviors arising from
such systems. This program can cover any aspect of cognition, including
perception, memory, language, learning or planning and coordination of
action. Theoretically-oriented CNBC faculty have many opportunities to
collaborate with experimentalists using a variety of techniques,
including two-photon imaging, multiunit electrophysiology, fMRI, EEG,
and behavioral psychophysics. Researchers with a strong background in
mathematical analysis, dynamical systems theory, probabilistic and
statistical learning approaches, or other analytical techniques are
especially encouraged to apply.

Applications should include curriculum vitae, statement of research and
teaching interests, 1-3 representative papers, and names and email
addresses of three or more individuals who have been asked to provide
letters of reference. Applications must be in PDF format. Applicants
