    with Letter of Intent
    (http://www-bisc.cs.berkeley.edu/BISCJobMay2002.htm), by and before May
    15, 2002.

    1. Perception-Based Information Processing, Analysis and Decision Making

    ====================================================
    Duties of Position: Develop models and software tool for information
    processing and relevant decision analysis using fuzzy-based soft
    computing techniques. Develop perception-based query and ranking model
    for information retrieval (distributed-multimedia databases) and search
    engines. Integrate the computational theory of perception into existing
    search engines and distributed-multimedia databases.

    Qualifications: The candidates will work in a multi-disciplinary
    environment to develop new techniques based on fuzzy logic and soft
    computing to add a competitive edge to Telecommunications, Internet, and
    Bioinformatics applications. The position is suitable for candidates who
    have demonstrate excellent track records in Soft Computing/ AI and
    processing of uncertain large scale structured and unstructured
    distributed databases/sparse matrix.

    2. Perception-Based Reinforcement Learning Algorithms for Sensor Fusion,
    Resource Allocation, and Decision Processing
    ==================================================================================

    Duties of Positions: The position involves advanced research and
    development leading to implementation in C++ of perception-based
    reinforcement learning algorithms for sensor fusion, resource
    allocation, and decision processing in a distributed and uncertain
    environment. To program automatically a team of UAVs and autonomous
    multi-agent system with a shared mission.

    Qualifications: The candidates will work in a multi-disciplinary
    environment to develop new techniques based on perception-based
    reinforcement learning algorithms to add a competitive edge to UAVs and
    autonomous multi-agent system applications. The position is suitable for
    candidates who have demonstrated excellent track records in soft
    computing/AI/reinforcement learning and UAVs/ autonomous multi-agent
    system.

    3. Fuzzy Partial Differential Equation Solver (FPDES) and Fuzzy
    Simulations
    ====================================================
    Duties of Positions: develop the next generation of PDE solver and
    simulation models based on fuzzy logic and Computing with Words. The
    project will include 1) state-of-the-art assessment of Fuzzy Partial
    Differential Equations and fuzzy simulation, 2) the development and
    foundation for Fuzzy-PDE solver, and 3) implementation of FPDE in
    selected problem areas.

    Qualifications: The candidates will work in a multi-disciplinary
    environment to develop new techniques based on Computing with Words and
    fuzzy logic to add a competitive edge to solve PDE and simulation
    models. The position is suitable for candidates who have demonstrated
    excellent track records in fuzzy logic-based soft computing techniques,
    interval value PDE solvers, and processing of uncertain large scale
    structured and unstructured distributed data/sparse matrix.
