Luleå University of Technology experiences rapid growth with world-leading expertise within several research domains. We shape the future through innovative education and groundbreaking research results and drawing on our location in the Arctic region, we create global societal benefit. Our scientific and artistic research and education are carried out in close collaboration with international, national and regional companies, public actors and leading universities. Luleå University of Technology has an annual turnover of SEK 1.9 billion. Today, we have 1,815 staff and 19,155 students.

In the coming years, multi-billion investments will be made in large projects in Northern Sweden to create a fossil-free society both nationally and globally. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these cutting-edge research projects and in the societal transformation that they entail. We offer a broad range of courses and study programmes to match the skills in demand. We hope that you will help us to build the sustainable companies and societies of the future.

The Machine Learning Research Laboratory at Luleå University of Technonlogy has an open position in the area of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing available. We can offer well-equipped laboratory facilities for performing research and good academic network in Sweden and abroad.

Subject description Machine learning focuses on computational methods by which computer systems uses data to improve their own performance, understanding, and to make accurate predictions and has a close connection to applications.

Project description Natural Language Processing will be applied to the output of text recognition algorithms to improve recognition accuracy and to enable analysis of the results. Research should be conducted in Machine Learning, especially Deep Learning for applications in the area of Pattern Recognition (e.g., natural language processing, document processing, robotics, eHealth, unsupervised learning, and time series analysis). The Postdoc should furthermore strongly participate in acquisition of future projects.

Duties The duties of a postdoctor primarily comprise research. Teaching and pedagogical development work may be included in the duties, up to a maximum of 20% of the working hours. As a postdoctor you will also participate in the acquisition of future projects.

Qualifications In order to be eligible for employment as post doctor you must have a PhD or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD in Cumpter science or some above- mentioned areas . A doctoral degree awarded no more than three years before the application deadline provides a useful qualification. Candidates who have been awarded a doctoral degree at an earlier date may also be considered if there are special grounds, for example, different types of statutory leave of absence. You should also have some experience in international research project collaboration. It is expected that you have practical experience in at least two of the following topics: Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, working with low-resource language data sets. We are looking for you who can conduct state-of-the-art research and who has good knowledge of English, both spoken and written, and has the capacity to work independently as well as in a team. Participation in international research projects is advantageous. As Luleå University of Technology is very strong in applied research, industrial experience is very welcome.
