post-doc: 3 Year Research Fellowship
Where: University of Birmingham, United Kingdom United Kingdom
What: Applications are invited for a 3-year Research Fellowship (postdoc) in
the theory of co-evolutionary computation at the University of
Birmingham. Co-evolutionary algorithms are heuristic optimisation
techniques, mimicking biological principles of natural selection,
e.g. for minimax/robust optimisation and learning game playing
strategies. Such algorithms have been successfully applied to various
industrial optimisation domains. However, the theoretical understanding
of these methods has been limited.

The successful candidate will contribute, together with other project
team members and international academic and industrial partners, towards
developing the theoretical foundation necessary for the design of
efficient and reliable co-evolutionary algorithms. The fellowship is
funded by the UKRI Turing AI Acceleration Fellowship project "Rigorous
Time-Complexity Analysis of co-Evolutionary Algorithms", providing
generous travel allowance, computing facilities etc.

The ideal candidate will have a strong research track record in theory
of evolutionary computation, algorithmic game theory, and/or randomised

The closing date is on 28th August 2022, see https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/CSG036/research-fellow-in-theory-of-co-evolutionary-computation for more information.
