RA Position Available

M.S. level research assistantship is available for externally funded projects for Fall 2004. The project involves developing signal processing and pattern recognition algorithms for a variety of applications. In particular, we are working on

  • Increasing pattern separability for difficult to identify patterns (overlapping pattern space problem);

  • Incremental learning of additional information that later becomes available to a classification algorithm, after it has already been trained on a previously existing database; and

  • Data fusion

The projects require exceptional problem solving, analytical thinking and programming skills (particularly in C/C++ and Matlab). Background in pattern recognition, in particular machine learning algorithms, such as artificial neural networks, is highly desired, though not required.

For all applicants, regardless of native language, adequate oral and written communication skills commensurate with the requirements of graduate work is expected. The position will pay for in-state graduate tuition at Rowan University, as well as a stipend for one year, with possible extension to a second year, based on availability of the funds.

If you are interested, please send a detailed resume or curriculum vita, including a statement of purpose describing your interest in the project, and why your background uniquely qualifies you for this position. You are highly recommended to download and read the recent articles published by the SPPRL before applying to acquire a better understanding of our current areas of interest.

You may send this material to Dr. Polikar by e-mail to expedite the process. Strong applicants will be invited for a phone interview. The position will remain open until filled.
