Post-doctoral position available at IBM Research Collaboratory


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

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
