      Dear Genetic Programming Community,

      Keele University is seeking to appoint three teaching fellows who will
      register for PhDs in Computer Science (see advert text below). Teaching
      Fellow activities will average 14 hours per week, leaving the rest of
      your time free to work on your PhD. We would very much welcome
      applications from individuals with an interest in pursuing PhDs within
      Artificial Life, Computational Intelligence, Evolutionary and Adaptive
      Systems, Natural Computation or a related field. Details of Keele's
      Computational Intelligence and Cognitive Science (CICS) group’s research
      can be found in the posts' further particulars (see below) and on our
      website at http://www.scm.keele.ac.uk/research/ci_and_cognitive_science/

      To be eligible for one of the posts you will have (or expect to receive
      this summer) an undergraduate degree in Computer Science or a related
      subject (minimum 2:1 or equivalent) and an ability to teach and assess
      in Higher Education. Please note that the closing date for applications
      is 16 June 2009: less than two weeks away! Initially the posts are
      fixed term for four years, with a starting salary of £28,839 pro rata

      Keele University was founded in 1949 and is situated in a very
      beautiful and spacious campus in the middle of England, in the county of
      Staffordshire. Keele places a high value on excellent research and we
      support nationally and internationally competitive expertise throughout

      Best wishes,
      Alastair.
