Postdoctoral position on Artificial Intelligence/Physics at Open Universiteit

In the context of the Einstein Telescope research grant, The Open Universiteit (OU) invites applications for a fully financed postdoc research position at the intersection of physics and Machine Learning with a focus on defining generative models for gravitational-wave data.

for an enthusiastic candidate, motivated to work in a multidisciplinary and multinational environment. The candidate should hold a Ph.D. (or be close to completion) in Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, or Computing, with a pronounced interest in signal processing and machine learning. Good programming skills in Python or a similar high-level programming language. Some background understanding of gravitational wave theory, interferometry, or machine learning would be appreciated. Candidates should be curious, with cross-disciplinary interests, and critical thinkers. Demonstrable research skills and/or technical skills through code development are also essential and have a commitment to research excellence. The project will make use of quantitative methods and work with open data sets concerning gravitational waves, interferometer analysis in the time and frequency domains.

Duration: A full-time employment for 2 years.

Salary

The Postdoctoral position on Artificial Intelligence/Physics includes the following:

  • A maximum gross salary is € 5.922
  • A free access to high-quality training programs on general skills, didactics and topics related to research and valorization.
