Subject: Postdoctoral Position/Computational Intelligence
EPSRC Postdoctoral Position available in
Computational Intelligence

Support Vector Machines and other
Kernel-based Learning Methods


Applications are invited for a EPSRC funded 2 year postdoctoral
position in computational intelligence. The principal area of
investigation will be kernel methods (for example, Support Vector
Machines) and their applications. The emphasis of the proposed research
will be the development of new algorithms (e.g. for novelty detection,
classification, query learning, etc) and theoretical work to validate
this approach. The project will also include some investigation
of the application of kernel methods to bioinformatics, medical
decision support and engineering in collaboration with research
groups in these areas.

The position is open to citizens of any nationality.

Further details about the proposed research area may be obtained from
our webpage http://lara.enm.bris.ac.uk/cig which has a downloadable
review paper (An Introduction to Kernel Methods) describing the
subject in more detail.

The closing date for applications is *** 20th August 2000 ***
