Educational and Employment Opportunities

Students in the adaptive computation group are admitted to either the MS or PhD program in the CS Department. To obtain Computer Science graduate program information and application packets, contact the department office at (505) 277-3112, by email to, or in writing to

            The University of New Mexico
            Computer Science Department
            Farris Engineering Center Rm. 313
            Albuquerque NM 87131-1386

Graduate students are typically suported through a combination of teaching and research assistantships. Inquiries concerning educational and employment opportunities in adaptive computation should be addressed to the individual faculty.

An additional funding source for graduate students interested in ecological complexity is the Research Training Group (RTG).


Professor Barak Pearlmutter of the adaptive computation group at UNM has an open position for a post-doctoral researcher. He is looking for a first-rate, creative, and independent person, interested in blind source separation and brain imaging by magnetoencephalography, neural networks, and related topics. But most important is a burning urge to do excellent science and publish it! Differential geometry a plus. Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or expect to receive one soon) in computer science or a related field.

Post-doctoral appointments are expected to last two years, but for everyone's protection they are guaranteed only for one year, and in unusual circumstance can be extended for another year or two. To apply, please contact Barak Pearlmutter prior to submitting a curriculum vitae, list of publications, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation.

Other educational and employment opportunities in the area include Sandia National Labs, Los Alamos National Labs and the Santa Fe Institute.
