Based in the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol,
UK, you will work with Professor Nello Cristianini and his team on an
EU funded project concerning the composition of modular learning
systems. You will carry out research involving the development of
tools (conceptual, mathematical and computational) for the control of
an adaptive and composite web agent.

You will work closely with the other group members to develop novel
methodologies within the domain of machine learning, data analysis or
text processing. You will design, analyse, implement, test and
evaluate new algorithms via programming and integrate them in existing
data processing and analysis infrastructure.

You will be highly motivated and have a PhD or equivalent research
experience in computer science or related areas, together with
knowledge of statistical machine learning methods, algorithms and
concepts such as Kernal methods, online learning, bandit algorithms,
reinforcement learning and graphical models.

Ideally, you will also have a track record in applying theoretical
results to develop real world systems and experience with text
analysis and data mining methods, together with software engineering
skills and programming experience in Java and/or C/C++.
