    PhD Studentship

    Applied Computational Intelligence Research Unit (ACIRU)

    School of Information and Communication Technologies,
    University of Paisley, Scotland, UK

    Applications are invited for a 3 year PhD research studentship which can start from October 2001 and is jointly funded by the University of Paisley (http://www.cis.paisley.ac.uk) and the Lufthansa Systems Berlin GmbH (http://www.lsb.de).

    The proposed research project will investigate and develop various approaches for combining predictions (forecasts). There is a large potential market for applications offering accurate and reliable predictions ranging from stock market exchange to estimating the demand for sales of goods and services. One such example, which will be looked at in more detail in this project, is an accurate estimation of the demand for various types of airplane tickets.
    Combination, aggregation and fusion of information are major problems for all kinds of knowledge-based systems, from image processing to decision making, from pattern recognition to automatic learning. Various machine learning and hybrid intelligent techniques will be used for processing and modelling of imperfect data and information utilizing the methodologies like probability, fuzzy, evidence and possibility theories.

    The student will be joining an enthusiastic and vibrant research group and will be primarily based in the ACIRU in Paisley (near Glasgow), Scotland but two extended visits to the Lufthansa Systems Berlin site in Berlin, Germany are planned in the second and third year of the project.

    The studentship carries a remuneration of 7500 tax-free (increased to 8k and 9k in the second and third year respectively) and payment of tuition fees paid at Home/EU rate. The stipend may be augmented by a limited amount of teaching.

    Applicants should have a strong mathematical background and hold a first or upper second class honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, physics, engineering, statistics, computer science or a similar discipline. Additionally the candidate should have strong programming experience using any or combination of C,C++,Matlab or Java.
    Knowledge of ORACLE will be an advantage.

    For further details please contact Dr. Bogdan Gabrys, e-mail: gabr-ci0@paisley.ac.uk.

    Interested candidates should send a detailed CV and a letter of application with the names and addresses of two referees to: Dr. Bogdan Gabrys, School of Information and Communication Technologies, Div. of Computing and Information Systems, University of Paisley, Paisley PA1 2BE, Scotland, UK. The applications can be also sent by e-mail.
