PhD Positions in Computer Science at University of Ghent, Belgium

PhD projects

IDEA: Intelligent, Distributed Environmental Assessment is a newly
granted project that will run for four years to come. The project will
greatly improve methodologies for measuring the quality of the local
living environment and support policy action taken on the basis of an
intelligent interpretation of results. The project will focus on
improving spatial measurement accuracy by using cheaper sensors (e.g.
for noise) suitably organised in a network, alternative measurement
methodology (e.g. mobile particulate matter measurement), combined
environmental agent interpretation based on the structure of the
underlying source mechanisms (e.g. traffic networks) and the physics
of propagation, etc. New methodologies for distributed processing of
the collected data will lead to more efficient use of computer
. Computational intelligence will be promoted to interpret
the observations made by this high performance network and support
decision making based on its measurement results.

To strengthen the IDEA team we are currently looking for 2 or 3
students that are interested in starting a PhD (granted by Ghent
, in this area. They will work as part of the
team of approximately eight researchers involved in the realisation of
IDEA and will be fully paid (PhD grant) for four years. After four
years of intensive training by the team's experts, the PhD graduate
will be ready for an academic carrier or take a high ranked job in
environmental protection, sensor network related business, or similar.

The project will benefit from a team of researchers having different
expertise and background. Applicants with a background in computer
, electronic engineering, environmental engineering, physics
engineering, information sciences and mathematics will be welcomed.
The position is open to applicants of any nationality with good
knowledge of English and/or Dutch. A strong interest in environmental
protection, sensors, distributed computing and sensor networks or
computational intelligence and natural computing is a plus.

Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae and
motivation to: Prof. Dr. ir. Dick Botteldooren
(, Prof. Dr. ir. Bert Dhoedt
( or Prof. Dr. ir. Abdellah Touhafi

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor
Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya No. 4
Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
