We are now looking to appoint a postdoc in machine learning with a focus on
generative deep learning, placed at the Division for Media and Information
Technology at the Department of Science and Technology, Campus Norrköping.
The position is part of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software
Program (WASP). 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. For more
information, please see: https: // wasp-sweden.org/
The research area for the advertised position lies in the intersection of
machine learning, deep learning, computer graphics and computer vision. The
goal is to create synthetic image data with combinations of computer graphics
and generative deep learning. The generated images will be used as training
data in machine learning applications, for improving performance and
robustness, or as a tool for anonymizing sensitive images. The developed
methods will be tested in various applications, e.g. for medical imaging
diagnostics. The project includes both basic research on the development of
new image generation methods, as well as applied research to show the benefits
of the new methods.
Our research group consists of 20 PhD students, senior researchers and
research engineers. We conduct research projects in areas spanning from deep
learning and medical imaging, to computer graphics and computational
As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of
teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.
In addition to independently conducting research projects, you will
collaborate with doctoral students and senior researchers within our research
To be qualified to take employment as postdoc, you must have been awarded a
doctoral degree or have a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a
doctoral degree. This degree must have been awarded at the latest by the point
at which LiU makes its decision to employ you.
It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three
years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for
having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these
may be taken into consideration.
You should have a doctoral degree in computer science, with a focus on machine
learning for imaging applications. You must have previous experience of
running projects in basic and/or applied machine learning, and specifically in
deep learning. Experience in generative deep learning, computer graphics, and
computer vision is particularly meritorious.
Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities and suitability.
