PhD Job Position in Telecommunication at Trinity College Ireland

Three-Year PhD Studentship on Variational Bayesian Filtering for Telecommunications at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

A PhD studentship is available in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin, commencing this autumn 2008. The project is at the heart of a collaboration with leading research institutes in Paris and Prague. The aim of the research is to develop new algorithms for Bayesian filtering using the variational Bayes approximation.

The successful applicant will be a national of any country and have a primary degree with a strong mathematical emphasis. Course credits in statistical signal processing, probability and telecommunications will be desirable, but not essential. The candidate will ideally be available to begin their studies in October 2008, and will spend one month each with collaborating partners in Paris and Prague, in 2009 and 2010 respectively. The studentship will be up to the value of EUR 17,000 per annum, and all university fees will be paid. A travel stipend for the collaborative visits (above) and for conference presentations will also be provided.

Candidates should contact Dr. Anthony Quinn [aquinn AT]. The formal application is by way of a full CV, with the names of two referees, and the deadline is 25th September 2008. In addition to this PhD studentship, a post-doctoral research post of 18 months duration will be available from October 2009.

Anyone interested is encouraged to contact Dr. Quinn at [aquinn AT].
