Post-doctoral position available at IBM Research Collaboratory - Singapore

IBM Research Collaboratory in Singapore welcomes qualified post-doctoral
    candidates to apply for a fellowship starting as early as January 2014.

    The successful candidate will be working on the 'next generation' of
    real-time analytics leveraging massive multimedia and unstructured datasets (such as cognitive computing).

    We welcome applications from candidates with background experience in optimal control, inverse problems, data assimilation, or machine learning, who feel that their experience will assist in the development of online operational analytics across multiple application areas from transportation to environmental sensing.

    The position involves working with an international research team developing models and algorithms for real-time analytics. The position involves both innovative research and writing articles as well as significantly contributing to real-world client projects. There is a component of the position that involves programming, and experience in Java is preferred. However, the position is not primarily a programming position.

    Salary and benefits are very competitive. The actual salary is determined by
    the IBM Research Human Resources department and cannot be provided ahead of
    an offer being made to the candidate. But, it can be expected that the
    salary and benefits will be very attractive, as compared to academic
    positions and to other positions in industry.

    The position is for one year and can be renewed up to two more years based
    on mutual agreement. As such, this is a duration-limited position. Of the
    postdoctoral researchers at IBM Research, some are converted to permanent,
    non-duration-limited, positions during the course of their postdoctoral
    fellowship. However, no guarantee of such conversion can be made ahead of

    We are actively recruiting for this position now and wish to fill at least
    one position soon, but regardless of your availability date, we encourage
    you to apply to the position, as it is possible for multiple positions to
    become available during the course of 2014. Therefore, while there is a
    preference given to candidates who are available to start early in 2014, all
    qualified and interested candidates should apply.

    Cognitive computing is an exciting area of research within IBM and if this position appeals to you, 
    please send a recent CV and please have 1 or 2 recommendation letters emailed directly to 
    Dr. Sebastien Blandin, at
