We would like to bring to your attention to the new Barcelona GSE Master in Data Science:
The program will begin in September 2014 and is currently open and accepting applications. Tuition waivers are available for the best candidates.
The Barcelona Graduate School of Economics is one of the top institutions worldwide for economic research and graduate education.
The study program has been jointly designed by leading academics and data scientists from the analytics industry, and it is organized around the following coordinates:
The School of Mathematics at The University of Edinburgh is seeking outstanding candidates for a five year Chancellor's Fellowship in Statistics or Applied Probability, leading to a permanent lectureship.
The Fellowship provides a research-focused reduced-teaching position for 5 years. Subject to satisfactory review at the end of year 3, the Fellow will then move to a standard University academic open ended contract. Applicants will have a research record of the highest calibre, exhibiting the potential to become an international leader.
Delft University of Technology has an opening for a fully funded PhD student in machine learning, to be supervised by Dr. Laurens van der Maaten. The research project is funded by the NWO Top grant "Learning from Corruption". It focuses on the development of new machine-learning techniques, and on applications of these techniques to domains such as computer vision and natural language understanding. In particular, the research will focus on new approaches for the regularisation of machine-learning models using an approach called marginalised corrupted features.
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Ariel University (Israel) invites applications for a tenure-track Lecturer or Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) position to begin in 2014.
The position is full-time, tenure-track, with eligible benefits. The candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the computer engineering track, including required courses such as Introduction to programming in C, Introduction to microprocessors, and elective courses such as Computer networking laboratory and Assembly language.
The following 2 PhD Projects are on offer at Royal Holloway University of London
Life history and genome architecture
The organization and architecture of the genome has been shaped by natural selection. There is abundant evidence that many genomes contain parts which were acquired from other organisms. Examples are viruses, which have integrated in the genetic material in a cell, and plasmids found in bacteria. The most striking examples are the acquisition of the genomes of organelles such as chromoplasts and mitochondria, which have originated from a fusion of cells.

READERSHIP (ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR) IN STATISTICAL MACHINE TRANSLATION
The goal of this project is to make a qualitative improvement in our ability to write sophisticated numeric code, by giving numeric programmers access to _fast_, _robust_, _general_, _accurate_ differentiation operators.
The Helsinki Doctoral Education Network in Information and Communications Technology (HICT) is a collaborative doctoral education network hosted jointly by Aalto University and the University of Helsinki, the two leading universities within this area in Finland. The network involves at present over 50 professors and over 200 doctoral students, and the participating units graduate altogether more than 40 new doctors each year.
The activities of HICT are structured along six research area specific
- Algorithms and machine learning
- Creative technologies
**Perception and Understanding of Urban Driving Scenes**
One-year position open from February 1st, 2014 (few weeks later can be negotiable). Heudiasyc Lab., CNRS - University of Technology of Compiègne, France.
Depending on his/her abilities and interests, the post-doctoral fellow will be involved in at least one of the following actions:
Applications are invited for four Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow posts to join a 5 year research programme addressing joint audio-visual scene analysis for future spatial audio at home. Research will pioneer a listener centred approach to 3D sound production that can dynamically adapt to the listeners' environment and location to create a sense of immersion. This requires new models for listener perception of spatial audio in natural spaces together with the audio-visual signal processing to produce, deliver and reproduce listener centred spatial audio in the home.
