Last modification : Monday, August 29, 2022

The research group KU Leuven ESAT-STADIUS is currently offering 2 Postdoc positions (1 year, possibly extendable) within the framework of the ERC (European Research Council https:// Advanced Grant E-DUALITY https:// www. (PI: Johan Suykens) on Exploring Duality for Future Data-driven Modelling. Within this project we aim at realizing a powerful and unifying framework (including e.g, kernel methods, support vector machines, deep learning, multi-layer networks, tensor-based models and others) for handling different system complexity levels, obtaining optimal model representations and designing efficient algorithms. The research positions relate to the following possible topics: -1- Duality principles -2- Multiple data sources and coupling schemes -3- Manifold learning and semi- supervised schemes -4- Optimal prediction schemes -5- Scalability, on-line updating, interpretation and visualization -6- Mathematical foundations -7- Matching model to system characteristics The research group ESAT-STADIUS https:// www. at the university KU Leuven Belgium provides an excellent research environment being active in the broad area of mathematical engineering, including data-driven modelling and machine learning, nonlinear systems and complex networks, optimization, systems and control, signal processing, bioinformatics and bio-medicine.
