Idiap has a new opening for a Senior Researcher position
Highly qualified candidates with strong academic management, publication and funding records:
The Institute is especially interested in those candidates committed to novel theories and applications of machine learning and signal processing, while contributing to the diversification of Idiap’s activities and bringing expertise in new application areas. Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to) new applications of deep learning, multimedia processing, autonomous systems, knowledge management, and collaborative systems (collective intelligence, digital humanities). Priority, however, will always be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any specific area of specialization.
The successful candidate is expected to initiate independent, creative research programs at the Idiap Research Institute, possibly in collaboration with EPFL. As part of our affiliation with EPFL, duties could also include the participation in undergraduate and graduate teaching in Lausanne. Given the links between Idiap and EPFL, academic careers can also be considered for exceptional candidates. In that context, candidates should demonstrate that they compare well with peers either on tenure track or having secured a tenured (associate professor) position.
Idiap offers internationally competitive salaries and benefits. For additional supporting information about Idiap and our activities, see http://www.idiap.ch. Further information about EPFL can be found at http://www.epfl.ch.
