Research Assistant in Neural and Intelligent Systems

(reference number CIRG28)

Applications are invited for a three year research assistant position
in the School of Computing and Information Systems investigating the
development of hybrid neural/symbolic techniques for intelligent
processing. This is an exciting new project which aims at developing
new environments for integrating neural networks and symbolic
processing. You will play a key role in the development of such hybrid
subsymbolic/symbolic environments. It is intended to apply the
developed hybrid environments in areas such as natural language
processing, intelligent information extraction, or the integration of
speech/language in multimedia applications.

You should have a degree in a computing discipline and will be able to
register for a higher degree. A demonstrated interest in artificial
neural networks, software engineering skills and programming
experience are essential (preferably including a subset of C, C++,
CommonLisp, Java, GUI). Experience and interest in neural network
software and simulators would be an advantage (e.g. Planet, SNNS,
Tlearn, Matlab, etc). Salary is according to the researcher A scale
(currently up to #13,871, under revision).

Application forms and further particulars are available from the
Personnel department under +44 191 515 and extensions 2055, 2429,
