Postdoc Position in Verification of Learning-enabled Cyber-physical Systems

Applications are invited for a postdoc position in artificial intelligence to join Imperial College London. Applicants should apply before January 01, 2019.

The Department of Computing at Imperial College London is a leading department of computer science, with a strong international presence in areas relevant to this position, such as verification, and artificial intelligence.

We are seeking to hire a Research Associate in the research group of Verification of Autonomous Systems, presently lead by Prof. Alessio Lomuscio. The group is active in the areas of verification of intelligent agents, both at theoretical level and in terms of implementations, including the MCMAS toolkit which is developed and maintained in the group.

The goal of this project, funded by DARPA under the Trusted Autonomy Program, is to develop verification methods for autonomous agents and cyber-physical systems based on machine-learning. The techniques will initially target systems based on feed-forward neural networks and then progress to address more sophisticated networks. The project will include both a theoretical component with strong emphasis on SMT-solving, mixed-integer programming and verification techniques, as well as tool construction. All outputs of the project will be openly published and all software will be released as open-source. Applicants can refer to this paper as one of the starting points of this research direction.

Applicants are also expected to hold (or shortly expect to receive) a PhD degree in Computer Science or a related field, and will have a proven track record with strong publications in relevant areas.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 to 35,061 per annum.

Informal inquiries about this position can be directed to Prof. Alessio Lomuscio.
