Post-Doctoral  Positions at the
Middle  East Technical University (METU), Northern Cyprus Campus

Applications are currently being requested  in the following fields and areas:

1. Computer Engineering / Computer  Sciences.
The following post doctoral speciality are needed
A. “Investigation of Analysis and Processing Techniques of Sensor Data for Activity Recognition”. Candidate should have prior knowledge and experience in new machine learning trends (such as deep learning), and data science is advantageous.

For more  information, you can contact:
Dr. Yeliz Yesilada, Associate Professor, Computer Engineering Department,
Dr. Enver Ever, Associate Professor, Computer Engineering Department,

B. “Agent-Based Simulation – Coherence-Driven Cognitive Agent”

Candidate should have prior knowledge and experience in Cognitive Science, Agent-Based Simulation, Social Simulation, Artificial Intelligence, specifically intelligent agents field, and/or Multi Agent Systems is advantageous. In social simulations, including the user social behavioral modeling, the cognitive abilities are the most important properties that an intelligent and social agent must own. Unfortunately, the state-of-the-art autonomous agent architectures (e.g., rule-based systems, utility-based and goal-based agents, etc.) generally are lack of the cognitive abilities. We believe that an agent with these capabilities will significantly improve the user behavioral modeling and social testing.
