      *** Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Machine Learning ***
           *** Technical University of Crete, Greece ***

A full-time postdoctoral fellow position in Machine Learning is
available within the Intelligence Lab of the Department of Electronic
and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Crete, Chania, Greece.
This appointment is scheduled to begin in January 2007 and involves an
initial one-year commitment with the possibility of renewal for one
additional year.

The successful candidate will conduct research on the use of modern
supervised learning methods for approximating and representing policies
in large reinforcement learning problems. The focus of the project will
be on scalability, efficiency, and applicability to real-world problems.
Proposed methods will be applied and tested on various single- and
multi- robot learning tasks using the robotic equipment of the lab (four
AIBOs, a hexapod, two humanoids, a modular robot).

The successful candidate will work closely with assistant professor
Michail G. Lagoudakis and his group of graduate students. There will
also be opportunities for interaction and collaboration with members of
the RoboCup team of the lab, as well as possibilities for lectures,
seminars, and graduate classes.

Suitable applicants must hold a PhD degree in computer science, machine
learning, or a related discipline and have a strong background in
reinforcement and supervised learning. Candidates familiar with
programming (mainly C and MatLab) and robot programming in particular
will be given priority. Excellent command of the English language is
required.

Interested candidates should submit their electronic CVs including at
least three contacts for references to Michail G. Lagoudakis (contact
information below) by *December 15, 2006* as URL pointers on the web (no
