JSI: Computational intelligence

The Computational Intelligence (CI) Group of the Department of Intelligent Systems at the Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia, offers a PhD student position starting in October 2023 under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Tea Tušar.

The CI group studies evolutionary algorithms for single- and multiobjective optimization, visualization of their results, and performance assessment methodology. We deal with both basic research and applied projects, and have many collaborations with researchers from other European countries (Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Germany; Inria Saclay and École Polytechnique, France; University of Trieste, Italy; Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic).

We are looking for a PhD student who is curious, likes to develop new ideas and knows the Python programming language. The candidate must complete a second-level university study program (mathematics, computer science or other relevant fields) by mid-September 2023 with an average study grade of at least 8 (out of 10).

The PhD student will be involved in research in the field of computational intelligence. You will be employed at the Jožef Stefan Institute and enrolled in the PhD program at the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School.

The official application deadline is yet to be announced (it will probably be set to the end of August 2023), but we encourage early expressions of interest since the position can be filled before the deadline.
