The University of Geneva Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (Computer Science
Department) invites applications for two PhD studentships in the field of
machine learning and data mining. The successful candidates will participate
in EU-funded projects and investigate advanced knowledge discovery issues
related to biomedical applications for their thesis.

Candidates should have an M.Sc. and outstanding skills in at least two of
the following areas: machine learning/data mining, mathematics/statistics,
bioinformatics, medical informatics, knowledge management. For one of the
positions, experience and/or training in biostatistics will be an additional
asset. A strong academic record, excellent analytical skills and a clear
aptitude for autonomous, creative research will be priority selection
criteria. Good programming skills and fluency in English and/or French
are required.

The expected start date for both studentships is 1st January 2008. Initial
gross salary will be around 4087 CHF (~ 2500 EUR) per month.

Applicants should send their a curriculum vitae, a statement of motivation
and research interests, and names and addresses (with e-mail and telephone
number) of at least 3 references to the address below, either by regular or
electronic mail. Applications will be accepted until both positions are filled.
