Hi,
   I would be grateful if anyone can circulate this around their 
departments.
   Best wishes,
	James Marshall

Applications are invited for a 3.5-year CASE (PhD) studentship in Novel 
Approaches to Logistics Network Optimisation, to be co-supervised by 
Eurobios, and the Machine Learning and Biological Computation group in 
the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol. The 
studentship will seek to apply novel approaches to optimisation problems 
in logistics networks, and is an exciting opportunity to work closely 
with one of the world's foremost consultants in the application of 
complexity science to business problems. The project will involve very 
close co-supervision by Dr Vince Darley and Dr Proshun Sinha-Ray at 
Eurobios, with the successful applicant spending on average two months 
per year working in Eurobios' London office. The successful applicant 
will have a background in a numerate discipline such as mathematics, 
physics or computer science. The project will emphasise both application 
to real-world problems, with industrial data and tools provided by 
Eurobios, and advancing the state of the art and underpinning theory of 
the optimisation approaches used. Therefore an ability to tackle both 
practical and theoretical problems will be essential. Sound software 
engineering abilities, particularly in Java, will also be required. No 
particular optimisation approach will be prescribed for the project, but 
investigations may include such areas as co-evolutionary algorithms, 
ant-inspired algorithms, simulated annealing, etc.

Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements for an EPSRC 
studentship (UK or EU citizen). Financial support will be provided in 
line with EPSRC support levels (currently 12,500 per annum for UK 
citizens, EU citizens receive fees-only support). The anticipated start 
date is on or around October 2nd 2006, but an earlier start date may be 
possible.
