MARIE CURIE EARLY STAGE RESEARCH TRAINING FELLOWSHIPS at IRIDIA, FREE
UNIVERSITY OF BRUSSELS (ULB)
The IRIDIA (Institut de Recherches Interdisciplinaires et de
Développements en Intelligence Artificielle- http://iridia.ulb.ac.be/)
research group at the Free University of Brussels (ULB) has been
nominated by the European Commission to act as a Host Institution for
Marie Curie Early Stage Research Training (EST) Fellowships. Subject to
final budget approval by the Commission, IRIDIA-ULB plans to offer a
number of long-term 'Ph.D. grants' (3 years) and short term 'Visiting
Fellowships' (from 6 to 12 months) with a starting date in April 2004.
The COMP2SYS (COMPutational intelligence methods for COMPlex SYStems)
Early Stage Training project focuses on the training of early stage
researchers to the use of Computational Intelligence techniques for the
treatment of complex systems in science and engineering. The programme
aims at developing the knowledge and skills necessary to solve complex
problems using the powerful emergent methods and tools of Computational
Intelligence. The programme will focus on five main topics:
1. Evolutionary computation
2. Ant colony optimization
3. Artificial chemistry and biological networks
4. Theoretical and applied machine learning
5. Swarm intelligence and swarm robotics
The COMP2SYS training programme will interest two profiles of early
o Grant holders: they will spend a research period of 3 years at
ULB-IRIDIA. They are expected to enroll as doctoral students in the
doctoral program of ULB.
o Young visiting scientists: typically they are doctoral students of
other universities who are pursuing their doctorate on a topic related
to Computational Intelligence. Occasionally they can be early stage
researchers in companies research labs. Their typical stay at
ULB-IRIDIA will last for a period of time ranging from 6 to 12 months.
Shorter visits, 3 to 6 months, might occasionally be considered.

We explicitly encourage women to apply for our advertised positions,
including those returning to work and/or those with flexible working
needs. We guarantee that the selection process will give equal
opportunities to female and male applicants and that regarding salary,
promotions, career development and all other aspects of employment,
equal opportunities shall be vigorously pursued. NB: mobility allowances
for employees with dependants may be higher.
Eligibility conditions are restricted, so please carefully check these
before contacting IRIDIA-ULB.
