      Two positions in Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems

          at B-IT/Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Univ. of Applied Science
                       in Sankt Augustin, Germany

The Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology B-IT/
Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Univ. of Applied Science has two immediate openings
in the area of machine learning and intelligent systems. One position
will be at the level of a post doc and lecturer, the second will be
at the level of a doctoral student.

B-IT is a joint research center involving the University of Bonn,
RWTH Aachen University, Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences,
and the Fraunhofer Institute Center Birlinghoven Castle (IZB). Supported
by the B-IT Foundation and complementary state resources, B-IT offers
highly selective International Master Programs in Applied IT as well
as summer/winter schools for qualified computer science students.

The Postdoctoral positions will involve a joint affiliation with
Bonn-Rhein-Sieg Univ. of Applied Science and the Fraunhofer Institute
Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS. Both positions will
be limited to three years at first.

Applicants should have a strong research background in one or several
of the following areas:
- machine learning
- knowledge representation
- qualitative reasoning
- Bayesian reasoning
- intelligent system architecture

The successful candidates will join the European Research project XPERO:
Robot learning by experimentation. The overall objective of the XPERO
project is to develop an embodied cognitive system, which is able to
conduct experiments in the real world with the purpose of gaining new
insights about the world and the objects therein. XPERO ties up with
research in scientific discovery in the early and mid nineties and adds
embodiment and the embedding into a physical world as a new dimension to
this research.

The salaries and social security benefits will follow the labor agreement
for the civil service (BAT).

Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences strives to increase the
share of female teachers and researchers and therefore encourages women
to apply. Handicapped applicants will be preferred if equally qualified.

Applications should be sent to

   Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences
   Grantham-Allee 20
   D-53757 Sankt Augustin, Germany
