IAML is a new course being taught for the first time in Autumn 2008.  The course text will be Data Mining (2e) by Ian H. Witten and Eibe Frank, Morgan Kaufmann (2005).

The TA will be responsible for:

 - helping to develop examples for the lectures
 - helping to develop questions for the one assignment
 - helping to develop materials for labs and tutorials
 - running lab sessions (2 x 4 hours)
 - conducting tutorials for 2 tutorial groups (4 sessions for each group)
 - marking of the assignment

The TA will need to be familiar with machine learning methods, and ideally will have experience of applying these methods to real-world data.   Having done well in courses like LfD and DME would be suitable preparation.
