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
