The Computer Science Department (Informatik III) of the University of Bonn, Germany, invites applications for the following position
Researcher (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter) - visual and algorithmic analysis of movement and event data –
The position is part of the Knowledge Discovery and Machine Learning research group, which focuses on the subfields of computer science known as knowledge discovery in databases (KDD, sometimes referred to simply as data mining) and machine learning (ML). For us, these fields include on the one hand the automated and visually explorative analysis of large data sets including intelligent algorithms that are capable of extracting from the collected data hidden knowledge in order to produce models that can be used for prediction and decision making. On the other hand, they also include algorithms and methods that are capable of learning from experience and adapting to their environment or their users.
The candidate would specifically elaborate and develop scalable visual and algorithmic methods for the analysis of spatiotemporal data, which involve a high complexity of geographical space, time, and multidimensional non-spatial attributes.
The candidate has completed a Diplom or Master degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or Geoinformatics and has proven capabilities in Software Engineering and mathematical modelling. Knowledge of Data Mining, Information Visualization, Geographical Information Systems and practical handling of spatiotemporal data is an advantage. The candidate should be fluent in English and have good writing skills. For non-German speakers learning of the German language should be considered.
The position is available for a period of 3 years with the possibility of extension depending on funding. Anticipated start date is early 2009. Salary is according to EG 13, TV-L.
The University of Bonn is an equal opportunities employer. Preference will be given to suitably qualified women or handicapped people, all other conditions being equal.
Applicants are expected to submit a cover letter, CV, and certificates of high school and university diploma.
Applications should be sent to:
Professor Dr. Stefan Wrobel, Knowledge Discovery and Machine Learning Research Group, Computer Science Department, Römerstraße164, 53117 Bonn ____________________________________________________________
