PhD Position in Biomedical Data Analysis at the University of Basel, Switzerland
Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Biomedical Data Analysis Group at
the Department of Computer Science of the University of Basel.
The open position is part of the research project "Emotional Memory in Health and
Disease" funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
This interdisciplinary research effort aims at identifying the molecular genetic basis of
emotional memory by combining experimental, clinical, and computational approaches.
Call for participation: INFORMS Data Mining Contest 2010
The INFORMS Data Mining Section (in conjunction with Sinapse) is pleased to announce its third annual Data Mining Contest: http://kaggle.com/informs2010.
This contest requires participants to develop a model that predicts stock price movements at five minute intervals.
Competitors will be provided with intraday trading data showing stock price movements at five minute intervals, sectoral data, economic data, experts' predictions and indexes.

Two Postdoc Positions in Statistical Machine Learning and Algorithmic Mechanism design at Xerox Research Centre Europe
The Machine Learning for Optimisation and Services group (MLS) at Xerox Research Centre Europe is expanding. We conduct fundamental research in statistical machine learning and algorithmic mechanism design, with applications to abstract knowledge representation, content creation, recommendation systems and dynamic pricing. Our research is the result of combining state-of-the-art expertise in computational linguistics, large-scale data mining, computational statistics and game theory.
We are currently looking for two very strong researchers in the following areas:
Human-observer based methods for measuring human motion are labor intensive qualitative, and difficult to standardize across laboratories, clinical settings, and over time. Moreover, many conditions that affect normal human movements are currently diagnosed during short visits to the clinician. Advances in wearable and wireless sensor networks have opened up new opportunities in health care systems. We are looking for a postdoc to develop novel machine learning algorithms able to perform medical diagnosis, temporal segmentation and activity recognition from accelerometer data.

The Robotics Group of the University of Bremen, Germany, is looking for a highly motivated researcher (PhD student or Postdoc) to work in a project dealing with the online evaluation of EEG data using machine-learning algorithms. Behavioral and fMRI data will also be analyzed during the project. Applicants without a PhD are expected to use their work in order to write a dissertation. The position is planned for 3 years.
We would like to announce two post-doctoral researcher positions at a
new Sheffield-based Centre for Biosystems Modelling and Inference.
Funded by significant investment from the Faculties of Medicine and
Engineering, , the new center has made three faculty appointments:
Magnus Rattray and John R. Terry. It is located in a new institute in
a brand new building. The focus of research in the centre will be
probabilistic inference and dynamical modeling.
The two post-doctoral positions are associated with grants
