Marco Signoretto just sent me the following:

Hi Igor,

can you please post this announcement on nuit blanche? thanks!


Sure Marco, here it is:

Postdoc positions ERC Advanced Grant A-DATADRIVE-B

The research group KU Leuven ESAT-STADIUS is currently offering 2 Postdoc positions (1-year) within the framework of the ERC (European Research Council) Advanced Grant A-DATADRIVE-B (PI: Johan Suykens) http://www.esat.kuleuven.be/stadius/ADB on Advanced Data-Driven Black-box modelling.

The research positions relate to the following possible topics:

-1- Prior knowledge incorporation
-2- Kernels and tensors
-3- Modelling structured dynamical systems
-4- Sparsity
-5- Optimization algorithms
-6- Core models and mathematical foundations
-7- Next generation software tool

The research group ESAT-STADIUS http://www.esat.kuleuven.be/stadius at the university KU Leuven Belgium provides an excellent research environment being active in the broad area of mathematical engineering, including systems and control theory, neural networks and machine learning, nonlinear systems and complex networks, optimization, signal processing, bioinformatics and biomedicine.

The research will be conducted under the supervision of Prof. Johan Suykens. Interested candidates having a solid mathematical background and PhD degree can on-line apply by following the submission guidelines given at the website http://www.esat.kuleuven.be/stadius/ADB/vacancies.php by including CV and motivation letter.

Ice Volcanoes on Pluto?
Release Date: November 9, 2015
Keywords: LORRI, PlutoThe informally named feature Wright Mons, located south of Sputnik Planum on Pluto, is an unusual feature that's about 100 miles (160 kilometers) wide and 13,000 feet (4 kilometers) high. It displays a summit depression (visible in the center of the image) that's approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) across, with a distinctive hummocky texture on its sides. The rim of the summit depression also shows concentric fracturing. New Horizons scientists believe that this mountain and another, Piccard Mons, could have been formed by the 'cryovolcanic' eruption of ices from beneath Pluto's surface.
