Postdoctoral Position in Bayesian Machine Learning
EPFL's Probabilistic Machine Learning Lab (http://lapmal.epfl.ch/), headed
by Matthias Seeger, has an opening for a post-doctoral fellow in the
field of Bayesian machine learning / low level computer vision, as part of
a project funded by the European Research Council.
The initial appointment is for 12 months, extensions up to 3 years are
Topics of interest are:
- Variational approximate Bayesian inference (variational Bayes, expectation
- Bayesian techniques for large scale models (stacks of image frames, 3D
- Exploring links between approximate Bayesian inference and large scale
optimization (theory and algorithms)
- Applications of variational Bayesian inference to adaptive compressive
sensing, magnetic resonance imaging, low-level computer vision or
The Probabilistic Machine Learning Lab is set within a vibrant, world-class
environment at EPFL, one of the leading technical universities worldwide
(the I&C department is top-ranked in Europe).
EPFL is located next to Lake Geneva in a beautiful setting 60 kilometers
away from the city of Geneva. Salaries are internationally competitive
the highest in Europe).
Applicants are expected to have finished, or be about to finish their
Ph.D. degrees. They must have an exceptional background in probabilistic
machine learning, numerical optimization, or statistical physics. A firm
of approximate Bayesian machine learning and/or advanced (medical) image
processing is a plus.
A track record of relevant publications at top machine learning or computer
vision conferences (NIPS, ICML, UAI, JMLR, CVPR, ICCV, PAMI, IJCV, IEEE IT)
and/or top-ranked image processing or physics journals is essential.
The working language at EPFL is English (good skills essential), French is
