Currently I have no money, but I may have (another) Research Fellow position available
in the area of Machine Learning or (Algorithmic) Information Theory or
(Bayesian) Statistics or Artificial Intelligence or related in 2014.
It will probably be similar to http://www.hutter1.net/rsise/postdoc09.htm.
Please check again End of October 2014.
The PhD will be awarded by the
Australian National University,
possibly paying a top-up scholarship. The total value of scholarships
is typically $20'000-$30'000 per year, plus fee waiver.
The PhD program is 3-4 years.
apply at the official ANU site,
I recommend you make yourself familiar with my research projects, and
read a couple of my papers to see whether you feel comfortable to work on some of these topics.
I will not answer mass emails. Otherwise you're welcome to contact me by email
in advance of the application deadline with subject line "PhD Candidate"
and attach (1MB max),
(i) detailed curriculum vitae,
(ii) academic transcript,
(iii) two or three references,
(iv) a specific letter of interest (1-2 pages),
(v) links to publications and/or theses.
Note that scholarships for non-residents of Australia are very difficult to get,
and you would typically need a couple of relevant and high quality
publications in the area already, or excellent results from a top
university Masters degree.
The College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS)
at the Australian National University (ANU) has a
Summer Research Scholar Program
for 8-12 weeks typically around November till February. Application deadline is 31 August.
We do not have a (fully) funded internship program for international students.
In case you already have a scholarship from your institution,
please let me know (you would need at least A$3'000,- total).
Your best chance to visit the ANU as an undergraduate is to
attend one of our annual Summer Schools. We have a limited number of
scholarships for them, and there might be a possibility to stay longer
than the 2 weeks.
I have student projects in the areas of artificial intelligence,
Bayesian statistics, machine learning, universal forecasting,
information theory, agent/control theory,
complexity theory, decision theory, image processing,
computer vision, philosophy of science, and/or related areas.
All projects require excellent analytical skills and good mathematical background.
You should have completed at least 5 pure math courses (e.g. algebra, analysis, numerics, statistics, discrete math) with excellent grades.
The Australian National University (ANU) is located in the city of
Canberra, the Federal Capital of Australia. The ANU consistently ranks
top among all Universities in the southern hemisphere, third in the
Asia/Pacific region, and in the top 50 worldwide.
The National ICT (Information & Communication
Technology) Australia with about 300 researchers
across the country plays a major role in the Australian Government’s
policy to promote science and innovation. It is capitalizing on
Australia’s and international extensive ICT talent through world-class research,
commercialization, education, and industry collaboration.
With a population of about 300'000, Canberra is a very clean and quiet
city, surrounded by bush land and parks,
and with Lake Burley Griffin in its geographical centre.
It is a three-hour drive from Sydney, surfing beaches, and Australia's ski
