*************************************************************
Research Fellowships and PhD Scholarships in Computer Science
*************************************************************

Applications are invited for post-doctoral fellowships in the area of
diagrammatic reasoning and intelligent user interface technology by
the School of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Monash
University, Melbourne, Australia. We are seeking candidates who hold
a PhD and have a strong research background in artificial
intelligence, computational logic, deductive systems, or
human-computer interaction. We also offer competitive scholarships
for suitably qualified PhD candidates who would like to work in these
areas.

The Project

Appointees will work in an ARC funded research project on diagrammatic
reasoning. This is part of longer term research into the foundations
of intelligent visual user interfaces. The focus of the current
project is computational methods for the interpretation of diagrams
and sketches, and for reasoning and problem-solving with diagrams.


The Position

We are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral fellow at level A or B
depending on qualification and experience. Successful applicants will
have the ability to bridge between theoretical concepts and concrete
applications and a strong motivation to lay a solid theoretical base
for the development of next generation human-computer interfaces. You
will be part of a dynamic research environment with many links to
other national and international research centers.

The initial appointment will be for two years with the possibility of
a further appointment depending on availability of research funding.

Salary range: A$ 41,694-60,382 plus additional benefits.

PhD scholarships range up to A$ 30,0000.


The University

Monash University is one of Australia's elite research universities.
The School of Computer Science and Software Engineering is the largest
school within the Faculty of Information Technology which comprises
approximately 190 academic staff members on several campuses in
Melbourne and overseas.
