The thesis will be in the field of Machine Learning, focusing on one of the following areas:
(a) Cluster Analysis: study of clustering evaluation indices in the context of “unusual” data such as those in bioinformatics and text mining.
(b) Temporal Data Analysis: data mining algorithms for complex temporal data.
(c) Relational Learning: data mining and machine learning for structured data, based on logical representations.
We are looking for a candidate who has recently received, or is expecting to finalize within a few months, a Master's degree in a relevant field such as Computer Science, or similar. Particular strength or experience in machine learning, data mining, computer programming or applied mathematics is highly appreciated. French and/or English are the working language.
