Postdoc Position in Multi-agent Technologies at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoctoral position in game theory. The deadline to apply is March 17, 2019.

The research programme is in the broad area of multi-agent technologies and is led by Professor Nick Jennings.

The project aims to develop mechanisms and algorithms that minimise the amount of information revealed during multi-agent interactions, including cooperation, coordination and negotiation. The mechanisms should encourage participation and the truthful revelation of preferences between selfish agents that are assumed to maximise their individual utility. Moreover, the mechanism should be implementable for practical applications and so computational efficiency is important. The mechanisms should also minimise the amount of private information revealed during the social interactions, thus ensuring differential privacy. Finally, the revealed information may be context and person specific (e.g. more information may be revealed in an emergency situation or with trusted individuals). As well as designing and developing the mechanisms and their theoretical properties, we aim to assess their practicality in trials to explore the burden on users.

This Research Associate post is funded by Samsung Electronics (UK) Ltd. The appointed Research Associate will undertake high quality research involving the development of novel mechanisms for cooperation, coordination and negotiation. The work will have a strong foundational basis, but will also be concerned with practicality in terms of being computationally feasible on internet of things devices and in terms of usability for users of such systems.

The Research Associate will work closely with Samsung researchers as part of a larger collaborative project. The Research Associate will help shape the research programme, undertake high quality research at the interface of multi-agent systems, game theory, decision theory, mechanism design and differential privacy. The Research Associate will also produce high quality research outputs and represent this line of work to the broader scientific and industrial community.

You must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to organise your work with minimal supervision and prioritise work to meet deadlines.
