      We are seeking an outstanding PhD student in the field of
      evolutionary computation, with experience / interest in at least
      some of the following topics: genetic algorithms, evolutionary
      strategies, co-evolution, evolutionary reinforcement learning,
      evolving (recurrent) neural networks, evolutionary dynamics,
      fitness estimation, linkage learning, ensemble methods.
      Goal: to advance the state of the art in evolutionary
      algorithms, and to solve challenging reinforcement learning
      tasks for virtual or real robots, etc.

      Salary: ~ SFR 48,000 per year ~ US$ 48,000 (15 April 2008)
      Start: now or soon

      To apply, please follow the instructions under

      ------------------------------

      IDSIA is small but visible, competitive, and influential. For example,
      its ant colony optimization algorithms broke numerous benchmark
      records and are now widely used in industry for routing, logistics
      etc. - today entire conferences specialize on artificial ants. IDSIA
      is also the origin of the first mathematical theory of optimal
      universal artificial intelligence and self-referential universal
      problem solvers. IDSIA's artificial recurrent neural networks learn to
      solve numerous previous unlearnable sequence processing tasks through
      gradient descent, artificial evolution and other methods. Research
      topics also include complexity and generalization issues, unsupervised
      learning and information theory, forecasting, learning robots. IDSIA
      was the smallest of the world's top ten AI labs listed in the 1997 "X-
      Lab Survey" by Business Week magazine, and ranked in fourth place in
      the category "Computer Science - Biologically Inspired". IDSIA's most
      important work was done after 1997 though.
