[DMANET] Several PhD scholarships in Evolutionary Computation at the University of Adelaide, Australia

Several PhD scholarships within Australian Research Council Future Fellowship "Bio-inspired computing for problems with chance constraints" available

The Optimisation and Logistics group at the

School of Computer Science,

The University of Adelaide, Australia

has several scholarships available for PhD students working

within the ARC Future Fellowship "Bio-inspired computing for problems with chance constraints" starting in July 2021.

Scholarships are for the duration of 3 years with a possible extension of 6 months.

There are no teaching duties, but students are able to take up additional paid casual teaching work during their candidature and get involved in teaching courses within Computer Science.

We are seeking excellent candidates with a master or honours in computer science

mathematics, or statistics.

A successful applicant should carry out theoretical or applied work on

evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimisation, and related bio-inspired computing methods for problems with stochastic constraints.

Candidates having experiences in the field of randomised methods, statistics and/or

computational complexity of bio-inspired computation are highly encouraged to apply.

Currently, around 20 researchers

from several nationalities work in the Optimisation and Logistics group.

The group collaborates with several of the major research

institutions in Europe and the U.S. and has high international visibility.

Applications (including curriculum vitae, IELTS test results, list of publications if

applicable, university transcripts, and names of two references with their

e-mail addresses) must be sent by email in PDF format with subject line

"PhD application: Bio-inspired computing for problems with chance constraints" to Prof Frank Neumann

( by 31 March, 2021.
