Funding is available for a 3-year PhD stipend in the Machine Learning Group of Herbert Jaeger at Jacobs University Bremen, starting in August 2010 or later. The stipend amounts to 1000 Euro / month.

This stipend offers great freedom, because it is not tied to a funded project. It is expected that the research under this stipend aims at fundamental and rigorous innovations in the modeling of stochastic dynamics. Indicative topics and further details can be found at
The successful applicant should have a dedicated analytical inclination and training. A suitable background would be, for instance, mathematics, theoretical (especially statistical) physics, machine learning, or signal processing and control. Exceptional BSc degree holders are encouraged to apply; they would be entered into an integrated PhD program with a Master option after two years.
