Call for candidature: postdoctoral positions in Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence at Télécom ParisTech, Institut Polytechnique de Paris, France

We are currently opening one 3-year and one 2-year postdoctoral positions in Machine Learning to join the chair “Data Science and Artificial Intelligence for Digitalized Industry and Services” at Télécom ParisTech (in the newly created Institut Polytechnique de Paris, France) to work on one of the following topics:

  • Robustness and Interpretability for Trusted Machine Learning
  • Deep Kernel Machines
  • Zero-Shot Learning/Transfer Learning
  • Autonomous learning/lifelong learning

DSAIDIS, a 5-year chair sponsored by five major companies: Airbus Defense & Space, Engie, Idemia, Safran and Valeo, is holded by Prof. Florence d’Alché-Buc. Driven by the issue of decision-making in critical areas (defense, transportation, industry), the DSAIDIS scientific program puts emphasis on the critical issues of learning with guarantees (robustness, reliability, transparency) in the context of large, multi-modal, and weakly labeled data.

Role

The postdocs are expected to have a strong background in both theoretical and computational aspects of Machine Learning. They will conduct researches on the cited topics with the team and participate to the supervision of PhD students. They will publish in the main top-ranked international conferences in Machine Learning. They will also actively contribute to the scientific animation of the Chair and will contribute to foster collaborations with the industrial partners on applications.

Qualifications

The successful candidates will hold a PhD in machine learning, statistics/biostatistics, computer science, have a strong publishing experience in peer-reviewed journals and  conferences in Machine Learning and an excellent background in applied mathematics/statistics. Strong interest for computational aspects of Machine learning is expected as very good skills in programming (Python).

Salary

Needs to be discussed according the profile of the candidate.

Location

Campus of Institut Polytechnique de Paris (25 km from Paris): Télécom Paris, 19 place Marguerite Perey, F-91120 Palaiseau with transportation.

Duration
