The position integrates into an attractive environment of existing activities in artificial intelligence such as machine learning for robotics and computer vision, natural language processing, recommender systems, schedulers, virtual and augmented reality, and digital forensics.
The candidate should engage in research and teaching in the general area of artificial intelligence. Examples of possible foci include
- machine learning for pattern recognition, prediction and decision making
- data-driven, adaptive, learning and self-optimizing systems
- explainable and transparent AI
- representation learning; generative models
- neuro-symbolic AI
- distributed/decentralized learning
- environmentally-friendly, sustainable, data-efficient, privacy-preserving AI
- neuromorphic computing and hardware aspects
- knowledge representations, reasoning, ontologies
Cooperations with research groups at the Department of Computer Science, the Research Areas and in particular the Digital Science Center of the University as well as with business, industry and international research institutions are expected. The candidate should reinforce or complement existing strengths of the Department of Computer Science.
Applications must be received by 22.12.2023.
The University of Innsbruck is committed to increasing the percentage of female employees especially in leading positions and therefore explicitly invites women to apply. In the case of equivalent qualifications, women will be given preference.
