      Dear Colleages,

      I'd greatly appreciate it if you could forward this announcement to
      any current or prospective graduate students who might be interested.

      Thanks very much!

      I have openings for two graduate research assistants to work on a
      computer model of analogy-making involving visual images. This work
      will build on the "Copycat" model of Hofstadter and Mitchell and will
      incorporate other approaches to high-level perception and image
      understanding, including those inspired by the field of "complex
      adaptive systems".

      More information about the project can be found at

      A recent paper describing the Copycat model, "Analogy-making as a
      complex adaptive system", can be downloaded from

      Applicants must be willing to pursue a graduate degree in Computer
      Science and Engineering at the OGI School of Science and Engineering,
      Oregon Health & Science University, near Portland, Oregon, where I
      will be joining the faculty. The department web pages can be found at

      Proficiency in C, C++, or another high-level programming language is
      required. Background in cognitive science, psychology, computer
      science, mathematics, image processing and computer vision, and/or
      biology would be helpful. The assistanceship will cover tuition and

      To apply, send a resume with your research interests, list of relevant
      course work or experience, programming experience and languages, and
      any other information you think would be relevant, and the names and
      contact information of at least two professors or scientists who will
      act as references. Please send this information in electronic form to

      Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
      Students of any nationality may apply. OGI is an equal opportunity
      employer and particularly welcomes applications from women and
      minority candidates.
