PhD: Vacancy: PhD position Machine Learning for engineering (ML4ENG)
Where: IDLab, Ghent University - imec, Belgium Belgium
What: The activities of the PhD position are embedded in this stimulating environment with a focus on data-efficient machine learning (or surrogate modeling) techniques to solve complex and challenging engineering problems with use cases from various engineering disciplines such as electrical and mechanical engineering.

In particular, the goal of the PhD research is to design tools and techniques to improve key parts of the engineering design pipeline, aiding designers in several computer aided design (CAD; design and analysis of computer experiments) activities such as uncertainty quantification, calibration, sensitivity analysis, design space exploration and optimization, etc. Machine learning algorithms such as Gaussian Processes and Bayesian optimization will be used to create a modern design flow, e.g., for the efficient design of electromagnetic and electronics circuits. This includes techniques for physics-informed modeling, generative design, preference-based learning, explainable engineering design, spatiotemporal modeling, efficient data collection and labeling, etc. The proposed PhD research is defined within the context of several national and international research projects on automation in machine learning (AutoML).

post-doc: Postdoc position at Newcastle University on Biomedical Data Science
Where: Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom United Kingdom
What: -------------------------
  • 1 postdoctoral position in Biomedical Data
  • Fixed-term 1-year contract.
  • Location: School of Computing, Newcastle University, UK
  • Deadline for application: 18th November 2022

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional biomedical data scientist to
analyse of the wealth of data that was generated in the APPROACH
project. This project focused on the identification of Osteoarthritis
(OA) disease phenotypes. It constructed a longitudinal cohort and
dataset that included clinical data, questionnaires, imaging data, and
biological assays from participants across Europe.

You will be responsible for the design innovative data integration
strategies, which will enable the project team to extract the maximum
value from the wealth of data that the project created, particularly
focusing on the discovery of new OA phenotypes and the identification of
biomarker panels to predict disease progression.

You should have a PhD awarded (or nearing completion) in Data Science or
a closely related discipline with a good record of accomplishment in
publications. You should have demonstrable communication and
interpersonal skills and an aptitude for engaging with stakeholders at a
local and international level. You should have the ability to use
personal initiative and creativity to solve problems.
