The Neural Networks and Machine Learning group at Universita' di
Firenze (Italy) is seeking one postdoctoral researcher to join an EU
funded collaborative research project focused on algorithms and
architectures for learning with probabilistic logic representations.
The position will be funded on the three-year project APRIL II, in the
6th framework programme (Future and Emerging Technologies). APRIL II
aims at developing a theoretical framework for probabilistic logic
learning and demonstrate its effectiveness on significant applications,
especially in the area of bioinformatics. Program partners are Freiburg
University, Germany, Imperial College London, UK, Univ. of Helsinki,
Finland, INRIA Rocquencourt, France, Universita' di Firenze, Italy,
Aalborg University, Denmark, and Univ. of York, UK. Tight scientific
collaboration is expected among all the research partners.
We are especially interested in applicants with a strong background and
experience in computational logic and machine learning. Experience in
other related areas such as relational learning systems, probabilistic
relational models, kernel methods on discrete structures, is also
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
The position is available immediately and can be renewed for up to
three years. Researchers who have recently completed their Ph.D. few
months are particularly encouraged to apply.
Applicants are invited to send a CV and two letters of recommendation to
