Postdoctoral Researcher Position in Mechanistic Machine Learning

The Faculty of Science and Engineering is offering a postdoctoral researcher position within the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science, and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen, for a project named mechanistic machine learning: combining the explanatory power of dynamic models with the predictive power of machine learning“.

Systems of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) gained a tremendous amount of interest in recent years, demonstrating great performance for a wide variety of tasks, but typically only if they are trained on huge amounts of data. Moreover, frequently no insight into the decision making is available or required. Experts desire to know how their data can inform them about the natural processes being measured. Therefore, they develop a transparent and interpretable model- and data-driven hybrid methods that are demonstrated for applications in medicine and engineering.

As a postdoc, candidate will work together with Kerstin Bunte and her team within the Intelligent Systems group, as well as a network of interdisciplinary collaborators in the UK and Europe from various fields, such as Computer Science, Engineering, and Applied Mathematics.

Duration: a full-time postdoc position for two years.

Starting Date: starting date upon agreement, but preferably before December 1, 2023


The position offer:

  • a full-time gross salary ranging from € 3,557 to € 4,670 per month
  • benefits including 8% holiday bonus and 8.3% end-of-year bonus
  • a pension scheme, partially paid parental leave, and flexible employment conditions based on the Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities.

Job Requirements

The successful applicant for the project Mechanistic Machine Learning has:

  • a PhD degree in computer science, applied mathematics, engineering or other relevant fields.
  • a keen interest in at least one of the following topics: machine learning (Bayesian methods), dynamic systems (differential equations), information theory, and/or applied mathematics, such as system identification, structural identifiability, model reduction, or sampling techniques
  • a working proficiency in English (knowledge of the Dutch language is not required).
