Hereby advertises at least one tenure track position as
Research Fellow in Machine Learning
based at the Faculty of Science and Engineering
Description of the subject areaThe Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest individual research program ever; a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment (see https://wasp-sweden.org). WASP comprises five Swedish full partner universities and a substantial part of Swedish industry and commerce. The WASP initiative includes among many instruments an international recruitment program and the present announcement aims to strengthen Linköping University specifically in the field of machine learning within the AI focus-area of WASP. While not excluding applicants also with other specializations of machine learning the present announcement targets three specific profiles of machine learning:
- we seek competence in Machine Learning for Visual Perception with focus particularly on mathematics and algorithms for machine learning and pattern recognition relevant to computer vision problems.
- we seek competence in Machine Learning for Causality with the objective of extending the theoretical foundations of causality, developing new methods and algorithms for causal learning and inference, and applying these on real world applications.
- we seek competence in Machine Learning and Visualization with focus on the development of approaches to explainability based on visualization of complex networks and training data to gain insight into machine learning foundations and in particular investigation of dependencies on network design, hyperparameter selection and settings, as well as choices of training data.
The successful candidate will primarily be engaged in research and PhD mentoring. Assuming a separate decision from WASP the position comes with financing for own salary and expenses for the full duration of the employment, plus salary and expenses for two postdocs (2 years each) and for two PhD students (4 years each). The holder of the position is expected to build a new research group and engage in WASP’s graduate school, WASP national meetings and other activities. The holder of the position is also expected to actively engage in applying for external research funding. The duties include also approximately 20 per cent teaching.
