ALADDIN: Autonomous Learning Agents for Decentralised Data and
Information Networks Intelligence, Agents, Multimedia Group



The School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of
Southampton is a world class centre of research excellence, awarded the
highest grade (5*) in the UK's last two Research Assessment Exercises. 

A number of fully funded 3-year PhD studentship are available within the
Intelligence, Agents, Multimedia Group to work within the ALADDIN
project to investigate and develop agent-based approaches to controlling
and coordinating large scale decentralised information systems.
Application areas of particular interest are disaster management and
sensor networks for environmental monitoring. 

Applicants should have (or expect to gain) a 1st class degree in a
numerate discipline (i.e. mathematics, physics, computer science or
engineering), and must be eligible for an EPSRC Doctoral Training Award
(i.e. the applicant must be a UK national, or an EU national who has
been resident in the UK for three years whilst engaged in higher
education study). Experience or interest in subjects such as game
theory, information theory, auction theory, machine learning or
agent-based computing would be advantageous. 

In the first instance, potential candidates should visit the project
website at www.aladdinproject.org  and then contact Prof. Nick Jennings
(nrj@ecs.soton.ac.uk ) for further information. 

For more details about research within the School of Electronics and
Computer Science and the application procedure, please see the ECS
