Postdoctoral fellowship and PhD studentship position at 4C in collaboration with Intel


Postdoctoral fellowship and PhD studentship position at 4C in collaboration with Intel

We are seeking applicants for a postdoc and a PhD position at Cork Constraint Computation Centre (4C), on a collaborative project between 4C and the "Intel Labs Europe" IT research team, Leixlip, Ireland. This will be jointly funded by the Irish Research Council for Science and Engineering Technology (IRCSET) and Intel.

The project is concerned with developing Artificial Intelligence-based methods for predictive building control; in particular, it will involve modelling and predicting building occupant behaviour and preferences, making use of diverse sources of information about the locations of occupants. This project complements and relates to work being done in the Science Foundation Ireland Strategic Research Cluster, ITOBO, on Intelligent Building Operation. The research positions will be based in Cork, and will involve research visits to the Intel site in Leixlip, west of Dublin.

IRCSET postdoctoral fellowships and studentships are highly competitive. The PhD candidate should have (or be about to obtain) a good honours degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or another related subject, and should have good programming skills. Knowledge of building control or artificial intelligence techniques - such as machine learning or reasoning with uncertainty/preferences - would be an advantage. The postdoc candidate should have in addition a PhD in a relevant area of AI, building control or some other related topic.

The Cork Constraint Computation Centre (www.4c.ucc.ie) at University College Cork in Ireland is one of the leading academic centres of constraint programming research in the world, and a major centre of research in Artificial Intelligence. The centre has about 50 staff members, including academics, research staff and students, from over a dozen countries and collaborates with researchers from many countries. It, therefore, has considerable experience absorbing non-Irish including non-EU researchers into its organisation. 4C is collaborating on research projects with a number of companies and has an Industry Associates Program (www.4c.ucc.ie/iap) with over 50 members. 4C is part of the Computer Science Department, and is situated in the new Western Gateway Building, which is about a mile from the centre of Cork City, and a short walk from the main University College Cork campus.

Intel Corporation is the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer, and develops advanced integrated digital technology platforms for the computing and communications industries. Research and Development at Intel comprises more than 6,000 researchers and scientists operating collaboratively across the world. The Intel Ireland campus, is Intel's fourth largest manufacturing site. In 2009, Intel announced the formation of Intel Labs Europe (ILE) housed in the Leixlip, Ireland campus. ILE aims to drive even closer collaboration with European researchers and policy makers on EU initiatives including exploratory research and methods of using ICT to improve the efficiency of industries and the environment.

To apply, please send a detailed CV to Ken Brown (k.brown@cs.ucc.ie) and Nic Wilson (n.wilson@4c.ucc.ie)
