A one-year  funded Post-Doc position in Computational Intelligence at is 
available at DIBRIS - University of Genoa, (Italy). The deadline for 
application is 21 Aug 2017 at 12.00 (Italian time) and the fellowship 
should start in Dec 2017.

Project title: Unbounded data streams learning: unsupervised methods and 
their applications.

Research activity: The project addresses the problem of clustering 
unstructured, non-stationary data streams. Objectives: (1, 
methodological) Extension of the Graded Possibilistic Clustering method 
to data streams; (2, methodological) Extension of spectral clustering to 
streams with complexity control; (3, applicative) Applications to 
problems in urban traffic forecasting (smart cities), web session 
analysis, wearable sensors for health monitoring. Existing methods will 
be adapted to accept incremental updates, and learning will be 
controlled through appropriate objectives connecting model parameters to 
measures of fit and of model complexity to allow updates when needed and 
to the extent needed.

Required qualification: PhD and/or Master in Computer Science, 
Electronics, Bio-Engineering, Physics, or Mathematics.

We are looking for a self-motivated candidate, interested in the 
mathematical aspects of her/his research, in the development of new 
methods for intelligent data analysis, and in technology transfer, and 
skilled in programming  and  in  thorough experimental data analysis.

Italian and international candidates are invited  to send their cv, a 
letter of  motivation, and the name/email-addresses of  some referees to 
Prof. Stefano Rovetta <[log in to unmask]> A.S.A.P.
