Tenure-Track Faculty Position in machine learning and computational neuroscience
The Center for Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence (CNAI) and the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine invite applications for a faculty position in machine learning or computational neuroscience. A major goal of the Center is to decipher the brain’s algorithms of perception, learning, motor control and cognition, and to test these algorithms in real-world machine learning applications. The Center aims to advance the field of artificial intelligence and to revolutionize how machine learning impacts society.
We are seeking applications at the Assistant Professor level, but accomplished mid-career or senior scientists at the level of Associate or full Professor with strong records of research productivity, grant support and a demonstrated collaborative spirit are also encouraged to apply. Research interests may focus on any area related to machine learning and computational neuroscience.
Applicants should submit a cover letter with a research statement, CV, and the names of at least three referees as a single PDF file to the application portal. First consideration will be given to applications received by Feb 29, 2020, but applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
