A post-doctoral research position on Numerical Methods for Structured Low-rank
Approximation is available from January 2011 in the
Information: Signals, Images, Systems (ISIS) research group of the School of Electronics
and Computer Science (ECS). The position is funded by an ERC starting grant and is
offered initially for three years, with an extension of two more years.

The key objectives of the project are: data approximation by low-complexity models
and model-free data processing. Specific topics of interest are: effective heuristics for
low-rank approximation, robust and efficient local optimisation methods, recursive
identification methods, and application of low-rank approximation in systems and
control, signal and image processing, computer algebra, and machine learning.

We are looking for applicants with strong background in linear algebra and
optimization, having ample experience in numerical software development. Knowledge
in system theory, identification, signal processing, machine leaning, and computer
algebra is an asset.

Informal enquiries regarding the position and applications should be submitted to Ivan
Markovsky (im(at)ecs.soton.ac.uk). The required application documents are:
- CV,
- summary of PhD thesis (1 page),
- statement of current research (1 page), and
- names and addresses of two references.
The closing date for applications is 7th January 2011.
