At: U. of Bristol
Based in the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol, UK, you will work with Professor Nello Cristianini and his team on an EU funded project concerning the composition of modular learning systems. You will carry out research involving the development of tools (conceptual, mathematical and computational) for the control of an adaptive and composite web agent.
You will work closely with the other group members to develop novel methodologies within the domain of machine learning, data analysis or text processing. You will design, analyse, implement, test and evaluate new algorithms via programming and integrate them in existing data processing and analysis infrastructure.
You will be highly motivated and have a PhD or equivalent research experience in computer science or related areas, together with knowledge of statistical machine learning methods, algorithms and concepts such as Kernal methods, online learning, bandit algorithms, reinforcement learning and graphical models.
Ideally, you will also have a track record in applying theoretical results to develop real world systems and experience with text analysis and data mining methods, together with software engineering skills and programming experience in Java and/or C/C++.
