Postdoctoral position in spatial modelling and reasoning, Lausanne

Post-Doctoral position in Spatial Modeling and Reasoning

Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL)

In the context of a project on environmental sensing, we are developing
new techniques for modeling atmospheric phenomena based on spatial reasoning
techniques. The goal is to be able to replace numerical models by more
efficient qualitative models that can be used to compress and clean the
sensor data. The project is currently approved until March, 2013 and
might be extended beyond that date.

We have an opening for a post-doctoral researcher to work on this project. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field, experience with spatial modeling and reasoning, for example in the context of GIS or AI, and possibly also experience with numerical simulation models. The position is open immediately.

We offer a highly competitive salary and excellent working conditions. At the graduate level, EPFL operates entirely in English and is regularly ranked among the top 5 European universities. The post will offer significant possibilities for career development. EPFL is located in Lausanne, Switzerland, in one of the most livable and central position in Europe.

Interested candidates should contact:

Director, Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
