Postdoctoral Positions on Model-Based Machine Learning
Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics (MPA) in Garching (near Munich), Germany invites applications for
THREE POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS ON MODEL-BASED MACHINE LEARNING
Kennziffer 02/2017 starting as soon as positions are filled
to research and implement new Bayesian machine learning methods for high-dimensional inference problems. The goal
is to advance current density estimation methods beyond the current state-of-the-art such as mixture models to enable
automated detection of structure within data, including data classification, while keeping the full capabilities of
the calculus of conditional probabilities. The project is part of an interdisciplinary collaboration between the MPA
and two industrial companies located in Bavaria. The project seeks to develop a self-learning and self-organizing
feedback control system which can be applied to different projects in astrophysics and industry.
The successful candidates will work closely as a team and should have a PhD in scientific computing, applied mathematics,
artificial intelligence or within the big data domain. Within the team several skill-sets and purposes need to be covered:
Expert level experience with Bayesian inference, classification or machine learning
Hands-on experience with computational algorithms and optimization methods
Strong programming skills in statistical languages/packages, such as Python, R, C++ with a focus on numerical efficiency
Solid software development experience in object-oriented programming
Experience in big data computing/parallelization
Excellent oral and written communication skills in German
Interest in project coordination within the team and with the industrial partners
Good English language skills are required for all team members.
Although you contribute to fundamental research, you have the possibility to apply the new framework not only to astrophysical
datasets, but within industrial contexts as well. This interdisciplinary project is funded by the Bavarian government.
Find more information on the academic setting of the project at http://www.mpa-garching.mpg.de/109183/Information-Field-Theory.
Please send your inquiries to email@example.com.
The appointments will be for a fixed term of up to three years. The salary is based on the German federal public service scale. Please send your application, including a brief description of your past projects,
copies of University degrees/records and your curriculum vitae, and the names of references by August 31th 2017 in electronic form (pdf) to
Later applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
MPA is an equal opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications
from women and minorities.
