Postdoc position at Telecom Paris

Another announcement I got today, for an interesting postdoc with Olivier Cappé at Telecom, covering potentially Bayesian applications:

A one year post-doctoral position is offered at the Laboratoire Traitement et Communication de l’Information (LTCI), the joint laboratory of CNRS and Telecom ParisTech (aka ENST), physically located in Telecom ParisTech‘s buildings in downtown Paris.

The position is within the project MGA (Graphical Models and Applications), funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR). The MGA project is a joint research project with teams from INRIA (Francis Bach), Mines ParisTech (Jean-Philippe Vert) and Ecole des Ponts ParisTech (Jean-Yves Audibert). The MGA projects deals with graphical models (in a broad sense) and applications in bioinformatics, computer vision and natural language processing. The MGA team is, among other things, organizing a regular seminar on machine learning that gathers researchers and students from Paris area in mathematics, computer science, and various application domains. Within LTCI, the postdoc will be in the STA (Statistics and Applications) Group and supervised by Olivier Cappé.

Candidates should have a PhD in the areas of machine learning, computational statistics or signal processing. Familiarity with (at least one of) kernel methods, graphical models, Bayesian computation, inference in latent variable models will be appreciated.

The postdoctoral researcher will be employed by the CNRS with a net salary of about 2000 EUR per month. The position is for one year, starting January 2010. Candidates should send a detailed CV, including a list of publications to Olivier Cappé (cappe [à]
