Our lab at Helmholtz AI in Munich focuses on the interface between Bayesian inference and deep learning with the goals of improving robustness, data-efficiency, and uncertainty estimation in these modern machine-learning approaches. Important research questions include, but are not limited to,
In this context, the Fortuin lab is looking for PhD candidates who have experience in Bayesian machine learning, deep learning, or similar, and who have a strong interest in the aforementioned research directions. You will be working closely with the rest of the Fortuin lab to drive your own research, and be involved in interdisciplinary projects within Helmholtz and in additional international collaborations. You will be given ample opportunity to publish your scientific results and present them at international conferences.
Munich, with its river, numerous lakes, and its vicinity to the Alps, is considered to be one of the cities with the highest quality of life worldwide. Thanks to its first-class universities and world-leading research institutions, it offers an intellectually stimulating environment for learning and research.
The PhD positions are fully funded and the remuneration and social benefits are based on the collective wage agreement for public-sector employees at the federal level (75% EG 13 TV EntgO Bund, i.e., around 3000€ salary per month plus pension and healthcare contributions). The positions are (initially) limited to three years, but under certain circumstances, an extension can be arranged. To promote diversity, we encourage applications from researchers who are still underrepresented in science with respect to their cultural background, nationality, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity, physical abilities, religion and/or age. Qualified applicants with physical disabilities will be given preference.
We are operating on a rolling interviewing schedule, so there is no fixed deadline. If you are currently unsure about doing a PhD, consider reading this post.
