Associate Professor in Statistical Machine Learning for Neuroimaging (part-time)
DTU Compute’s Section for Cognitive Systems, invites applications for a part-time appointment (17.5 hours/week) as Associate Professor in statistical machine learning for neuroimaging data.
The position is available from January 1, 2021 or according to mutual agreement. The Section for Cognitive Systems is a lively and research oriented group of scientists and support staff with a shared interest in information processing in man and computer, and a particular focus on the signals they exchange - audio, imagery, behaviour – and the opportunities these signals offer for modelling and engineering of cognitive systems.
The Section is working actively to keep a healthy work-life balance and we are aware of the challenges facing young families in academia. Working at DTU provides much flexibility and families in Denmark enjoy a highly developed and affordable childcare system. Modern neuroimaging techniques generate large amounts of complex data and sophisticated machine learning methodology is needed to process and analyse these types of data in efforts to develop potential biomarkers and improve our understanding of the human brain. To strengthen the Department’s teaching and research in this field, we are seeking an Associate Professor in statistical machine learning for neuroimaging.
Responsibilities and tasks
You will advance interdisciplinary research on analysis of functional neuroimaging data, working at the intersection between cognitive science, physics, health, and computer science. You will contribute to develop novel methods for analysis of neuroimaging data with special emphasis on methods for uncertainty quantification, active learning and causal inference.
The successful candidate is supposed to participate and develop departmental teaching on machine learning, covering Bachelor-, Master- and PhD-level courses, and participate in the supervision of graduate students.
The successful applicant will collaborate with DTU Compute faculty to develop innovative research and teaching and contribute to educational activities in the health sector.
