Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computational Models of Visual Learning

http://www.ciar.ca/web/home.nsf/pages/home

 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN
       COMPUTATIONAL MODELS OF VISUAL LEARNING

The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research is providing funding for
two Junior Fellows in their program on Neural Computation and Adaptive
Perception. The Junior Fellows will already have a PhD in Computer
Science, Computational Neuroscience or a related discipline and they
will already have an exceptional track record of original research.
The Junior Fellows will pursue their own research program which should
be related to computational approaches to how visual systems can be
learned, preferably with some relevance to biological visual
systems.

The Junior Fellows will have their own travel funds and a stipend of
at least 60,000 Canadian dollars per year. They will interact
extensively with other fellows and scholars of the Canadian Institute
for Advanced Research, including members of other research
programs. The fellowships will last for at least two years starting in
late 2008 or early 2009. They can be held at any of the Canadian
Universities that already have fellows or scholars of the Program in
Neural Computation and Adaptive Perception. These Universities are:

University of British Columbia: David Lowe, Kevin Murphy
University of Montreal: Yoshua Bengio
University of Toronto:  David Fleet, Brendan Frey, Aaron Hertzmann,
                           Geoffrey Hinton, Sam Roweis, Richard Zemel
York University: Hugh Wilson

A description of the Neural Computation and Adaptive Perception
program can be found under "research" at
http://www.ciar.ca/web/home.nsf/pages/home

Applications should be sent to hinton@cs.toronto.edu and must be
received by July 31 2008.  Applications must consist of emails in
plain text with attachments that are pdf files. Attachments should
include a CV, up to 3 recent papers, and a research plan of less than
two pages that includes a clear statement of who the applicant plans to
interact with, which university the fellowship will be held at, and a
proposed starting date.
