Om jobbet

Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

Linköping University


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 area

The 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.
A successful candidate with the first profile will be affiliated with the Computer Vision Laboratory (CVL) at the Department of Electrical Engineering. A successful candidate with the second profile will be affiliated with the division of Artificial Intelligence and Integrated Computer Systems (AIICS) at the Department of Computer & Information Science, and a successful candidate with the third profile will be affiliated with the Media and Information Technology (MIT) division at the department of Science and Technology. For detailed information about the three divisions see home pages at the Computer Vision Laboratory (CVL), the division of Artificial Intelligence and Integrated Computer Systems (AIICS), the Media and Information Technology division (MIT)

Duties
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.
