Postdoctoral position in machine learning, San Diego CA (U.S.A.)


Postdoctoral position available in machine learning

The computer science department at the University of California, San Diego 
(UCSD) is looking for an outstanding postdoctoral scholar to do research 
in basic and applied machine learning. The successful candidate will work 
closely with Professor Charles Elkan on an interdisciplinary project 
funded mainly by a gift from Intel. The funding is to support innovative 
analyses of massive data collected by Intel and its partners concerning 
how personal computers are used. This position is for an independent 
individual who is enthusiastic about launching a world-class research 
career. Applicants should have a strong record of high quality published 
research in machine learning and/or related fields. They should be 
motivated to be the main author of papers to be published at top venues 
such as JMLR and PNAS. They should also have strong implementation skills 
and be eager to develop well-engineered software for use by practitioners 
and by other researchers. UCSD is a world center for research in machine 
learning, and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to 
collaborate with a wide range of other researchers. Taking initiatives and 
working on other themes in addition to the Intel project will be 
encouraged. Applicants with interests in probabilistic methods, neural 
networks, computational social science, computational finance, and 
computational biology are especially welcome. Applicants must possess a 
doctorate in computer science or a related area. There are no restrictions 
on citizenship, and applicants from leading universities outside the U.S. 
are welcome. The starting date can be as soon as July 1, 2013. Assuming 
strong performance, funding is expected to be available to extend the 
position. The salary will be competitive and UCSD benefits are excellent. 
Funds for professional travel will be available. Please send expressions 
of interest and applications to Charles Elkan at elkan@ucsd.edu, 
mentioning "Intel postdoc" in the email subject line. The review process 
will start immediately and will continue until the opening is filled. 
Leading applicants will be interviewed by video Skype and may be invited 
to visit in person. UCSD is an equal opportunity employer with strong 
commitments to diversity and excellence. These are links to more
