Postdoc Position at Imperial College London

Imperial College London has an opening postdoctoral position in artificial intelligence. The initial contract for this position is 2 years. This position is closed on December 08, 2019.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position at the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London. The successful candidate will be a statistician/data scientist with experience in computationally intensive statistical modelling and/or probabilistic machine learning.

Supervised by Professor Emma McCoy, the Research Associate will work at the Alan Turing Institute as part of the Data Centric Engineering Programme. As the National Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, the Alan Turing Institute provides a dynamic research environment with state-of-the-art facilities, and the opportunity to interact with the best data scientists from across the UK. The Data-Centric Engineering programme is led by Professor Mark Girolami at the Alan Turing Institute. The programme involves mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers from across Imperial.

You will develop methodology for modelling complex engineering systems involving "wicked" problems. In particular, they will aim to predict system interactions, potential failures and the effect of interventions using the potential of causal inference and machine-learning approaches through both supervised and unsupervised learning. One potential application of the methodology will be to seek to identify patterns of relevant information and build predictive models to revolutionise the engineering practice of design assurance, which involve checking designs meet standards and requirements. In this application, the models will be multimodal in nature, fusing a rich and detailed structured data-set of time logs with associated textual design documents.

The project is an opportunity to engage with engineers and other experts on a regular basis to progress cutting-edge research that is both suitable for publication into leading academic journals and has impact on the development of data-driven design under uncertainty in complex engineered systems. You will also be closely linked to the Transport Strategy Centre, led by Professor Dan Graham (co-lead of Grand Challenge II) and the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation, led by Professor Whyte (who leads Grand Challenge III), both Centres are in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and will engage broadly with the active research communities in data-science at Imperial College London.

The position is for 2 years. The expected start date is 2nd January 2020 or as soon there-after as is practical.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 35,477 – 38,566 per annum.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
