The department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is searching for Post-Doctoral Associates in Machine Learning Modeling of Scientific Data to work in the Carlson laboratory.

Word Performed Two post-doctoral research positions are available at Duke University to build machine learning methodology to model scientific data. This position is in the research group of Prof. David Carlson for a collaborative project with Guillermo Sapiro (ECE) and Kafui Dzirasa (Psychiatry/Neurobiology). The specific research application areas include building network analysis methods to make sense of electrophysiological neural data and to improve analysis in the context of behavior and neuropsychiatric disorders. This is an exciting project that will build machine learning techniques to push the frontiers of neuroscience.


PhD in an engineering discipline, bio statistics, machine learning, physics, applied mathematics, computational neuroscience or a related field. Candidates with non-US degrees may be required to provide proof of degree equivalency.

Experience and Skills Qualifications include primarily a strong research portfolio in computational methods, statistical, machine learning, computational neuroscience, or a related field. Backgrounds in analyzing large datasets, modeling complex systems, and cutting-edge machine learning will be particularly valuable. These positions are highly quantitative and highly interdisciplinary.

Certain jobs at Duke University and Duke University Health System may include essential job functions that require specific physical and/or mental abilities. Additional information and provision for requests for reasonable accommodation will be provided by each hiring department.
