Tue Oct 4 07:12:02 PDT 2011

A three-year postdoctoral appointment is available in the Morphology,  
Evolution and Cognition Laboratory


in the department of Computer Science at the University of Vermont.  
The successful applicant will extend stochastic optimization methods  
such as genetic algorithms and genetic programming to automatically  
discover hierarchical relationships in time series data. One  
application will involve modeling functional hierarchy in the brain  
using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data sets. The  
other application will involve modeling functional relationships  
within and between robots in a robot swarm.

The applicant will work closely with Principal Investigator Josh  
Bongard (Computer Science, UVM)


and Hugh Garavan (Psychiatry & Psychology, UVM)


The applicant should have significant programming experience but is  
not expected to have a background in the neuroscience target domain.

If interested please email josh.bongard at uvm.edu with a full CV.  
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position  
is filled.
