Postdoc position in Knowledge Discovery in Multimedia Databases
----------------------------------------------------------------

The research group on Internet and Multimedia in Telefónica R&D*
Barcelona invites for applications for a Junior Research position in the
area of Knowledge Discovery in Multimedia Databases. 

We are looking for dynamic, creative, and resourceful individuals to
join our research efforts in modeling of complex systems and companion
analysis of large data sets related to multimedia content. Our research
impacts all areas of the company, including projects related to IPTV or
internet content distribution. The successful candidate will join a
multi-disciplinary team of scientists dedicated to advance and use
computational methods to solve challenging user-oriented problems such
as Recommendation Engines or Content-based indexing and IR.

The applicant should have a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical
Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or other related
scientific disciplines, combined with strong computational modeling
and/or algorithmic skills. Knowledge and experience in additional areas
such as statistical data analysis, data mining, signal processing, 
machine learning and pattern recognition, and other topics in artificial
intelligence are desirable. Experience in the multimedia field will be
taken into account but it is not strictly necessary. 

Although this particular position is designed for a postdoctoral
candidate the group is also actively seeking for doctoral students in
this area that might be interested in finishing their Thesis in
Telefónica R&D or in doing a research internship. If you are in either
of these situations please do not hesitate to apply.

We offer competitive salary and benefits and a great working atmosphere
in beautiful Barcelona (Spain).

Screening of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled. An initial appointment for a one year term is
anticipated with the possibility of reappointment.

Inquiries and applications should be sent to
