PhD position on 'Probabilistic Decision Support for Forensic Investigations' at Utrecht University

Deadline: Saturday 1 October 2016

The Department of Information and Computing Sciences of Utrecht University is looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate for our PROBAS project (Probabilistic decision-making Based on Arguments and Scenarios). In this project, fundamental research on language, logic and algorithms is combined with research into knowledge elicitation and decision-support in the context of large forensic investigations.

The aim of this interdisciplinary project is to determine how logical arguments and scenarios are used in actual decision-making, how they can be used to construct and compare Bayesian networks, and how subsequently mathematical and computational techniques can be used to refine and choose between alternative networks.
