Postdoc position in mathematical optimization and artificial intelligence

Postdoc position in mathematical optimization and artificial intelligence

Arbetsbeskrivning

We are looking for a Postdoc candidate to the largest department of mathematical sciences in Sweden. The research direction will be towards inverse optimal control and inverse reinforcement learning. The environment at the department is international and dynamic, and the candidate will also be part of the largest research program in Sweden, the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).

Information about us
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg has about 200 employees, and is the largest department of mathematical sciences in Sweden. We deliver undergraduate and graduate courses for a diverse set of engineering and science programs at both universities, including two Master programs in mathematics. The department is comprised of three academic divisions: Algebra and Geometry; Analysis and Probability; Applied Mathematics and Statistics. More information about us can be found on our website: http://www.chalmers.se/math/

The Division of Applied Mathematics and Statistics conducts internationally recognized research in areas such biomathematics, mathematical optimization, finite element methods, inverse problems, stochastic partial differential equations, mathematical statistics, and data science. The division is also rapidly expanding in the area of Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/math/research/research-groups/AIMS/Pages/default.aspx

We are looking for a motivated, independent, and team-oriented postdoctoral researcher in AI and machine learning, more specifically in inverse optimal control and inverse reinforcement learning. The position is financed by WASP (see below), and the project will develop theory and methods for inverse optimal control and inverse reinforcement learning.

Our department continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all our activities. We work actively to be a parent-friendly organization.

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. The program addresses research on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems. The vision of WASP is excellent research and competence in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry. Read more: https://wasp-sweden.org/

Major responsibilities
The postdoctoral position offers an opportunity to further develop your research profile, where the majority of your working time is devoted to research. As a WASP postdoc at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, you will be part of two international research environments. This will give you ample opportunities for many inspiring conversations, and (if the circumstances allow for it) some travel. Moreover, as a postdoctoral researcher, you are expected to work independently and to be able to supervise/co-supervise Master’s and PhD students.

Qualifications
To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must hold a doctoral degree in a relevant area, such as mathematics, applied mathematics, or other relevant field, or be expect to complete such degree by the time the employment starts. The degree must be awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline. Strong communicative skills and fluency in written and spoken English are a requirement.

The applicant should also be experienced in programming (Python, Matlab, or equivalent languages). Previous experience with machine learning and/or artificial intelligence is meritorious. Experience in some of the following areas (in alphabetical order) may be meritorious: convex analysis; functional analysis; numerical analysis; optimization; stochastic analysis; systems theory.

Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment for two years.

We offer
Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg.
