Adaptive Computation Scientists

At Unilever it is our ability to recognise and cater for the diverse yet
 subtle needs of a global marketplace, that differentiates us from the
 competition. Totally committed to scientific exploration and discovery, we
 invest �550 million in pioneering new research to ensure that our products
 remain the preferred choice, 150 million times a day. 

Adaptive Computation techniques play a key role in the development of a wide
 spectrum of our product and manufacturing applications for leading foods,
 home and personal care products including Impulse, Organics, Persil, Flora
 and Wall's Ice Cream. This is why we have recently established a Centre of
 Excellence in Port Sunlight that is committed to this area and to developing
 and maintaining links with leading academics.

Here you will discover exciting opportunities for talented individuals who
 will relish the challenge of developing leading-edge solutions to complex
 industrial problems. A combination of world-class research and an
 understanding of how technology may be applied in practice will enable you
 to extend both your technological capabilities and application areas.

Flexible, self motivated and a strong team player with a broad scientific
 interest, you will need a high level of numeracy and the ability to work to
 tight deadlines. Your good first Degree encompassing a strong mathematical
 component should be supported by a PhD, MSc or industrial experience.

We are looking for one or two specialists in one or two of the following areas:

*) Evolutionary systems; Multi-criteria optimisation; Adaptive Agents;
 Complex Adaptive Systems
