[DMANET] Post doc position in theoretical aspects of machine learning at Computer Science, Aarhus University

A post doc position in theoretical aspects of machine learning is
available. The post doc is under the supervision of Professor Kasper
Green Larsen, Aarhus University, Denmark.

The focus of the research project is on developing and
analyzing machine learning algorithms in terms of their generalization

Candidates with expertise in theoretical computer science
and/or machine learning are preferred.

The candidate is expected to work on theoretical research questions in
machine learning. The research is carried out in collaboration with
Kasper as well as Ph.D. students and post docs in the group.

The candidate is expected to have a strong theoretical background
to carry out proofs independently or with minor guidance.

It is not expected that the candidate will do implementations, however, if the
candidate wishes to do so, and it is natural in the project, then
implementation work is most welcome.

In addition to research, there may be minor teaching activities, such as presenting at seminars in the research group or guiding Ph.D. students in joint projects.

Candidates must have expertise in machine learning and/or theoretical
computer science. Publications at top venues in ML, such as ICML and NeurIPS, or top TCS venues such as STOC, FOCS, SODA, ICALP are appreciated.

The daily work will be carried out in the Algorithms, Data Structures and Foundations of Machine Learning group at Aarhus University, Denmark.

The group is headed by Kasper Green Larsen and also includes faculty members Professor Gerth S. Brodal, Associate Professor Peyman Afshani and Assistant Professor Chris
Schwiegelshohn as well as Ph.D. students and post docs.

The group also collaborates closely with the Game Theory and Complexity group
consisting of faculty members Prof. Iannis Caragiannis, Assoc. Prof. Srikanth Srinivasan and Assoc. Prof. Kristoffer Arnsfelt Hansen.

The project is funded by a DIREC - Digital Research Centre Denmark.

The position is available from February 1st, 2023 or earlier (a later start date may be negotiated). The position is for 1 year.

The application deadline for the position is December 1st,
2022. Applicants should apply online via our recruitment system by
sending a letter of interest and a CV, as well as indicate at least
two names of references for recommendations.

The application must be submitted through the online system at:
