Ref: F1-50011608A (to be mentioned in all correspondence)
Full-time position (40 hrs/week)
Earliest starting date: September 2020
Fixed-term contract: 5 years, with perspective of a permanent position and promotion to Associate Professor upon a positive evaluation. In case of an excellent more senior candidate, a direct appointment at the level of Associate Professor may be considered

To diversify the existing skills and expertise within DCS, the candidate is expected to:
advance state-of-the-art research in the area of Machine Learning
offer focused Machine Learning courses at both Bachelor and Master level
supervise PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers at the University of Luxembourg
collaborate across the various departments within the FSTM (such as Mathematics, Physics and Materials Science, Engineering, Medicine, Computational and Life Sciences), with other faculties, as well as with the adjunct research centres (LCSB, C2DH, SnT, LIST)
The initial package includes a PhD and a post-doctoral researcher position. The Luxembourgish research funding agency (FNR) offers a broad range of further funding opportunities through projects and special excellence programs (ATTRACT/PEARL). Academic salaries in Luxembourg are very competitive and among the highest in Europe.
The FSTM is seeking to hire an outstanding and visionary candidate in the area of Machine Learning. Applicants should have an excellent international track record, a strong background in the theoretical foundations of Machine Learning, an interest in innovative Machine Learning techniques, and be open for interdisciplinary collaborations with both academia and industry. Strong candidates with a more practical orientation will also be considered. Non-exclusive possible areas of interest are Bayesian and statistical-relational learning, learning probabilistic and causal graphical models, learning other types of structured/logical knowledge, explainable learning, deep learning, unsupervised learning, big data applications (scalability, distributed and parallel execution of learning techniques), applications for natural-language processing and computer vision, autonomous systems, space research, and industry 4.0.
The University of Luxembourg is set in a multilingual context. The person hired on this position must be proficient in English and in either French or German. The University encourages its staff to learn the other language and provides free access to language courses if needed.
An international team at a young and dynamic university

The University of Luxembourg, which currently ranks 17th among the worldwide best universities under 50 years on the Times Higher Education (THE) list, is a public
university with a strong focus on research and a very international faculty. With far more than 300 researchers, it is a major and ambitious player in Computer Science,
laying the foundations for futuristic computational systems and supporting the digitization of science and society in the 21st century. The Department of Computer Science
(dcs.uni.lu), one of the main pillars of research excellence at UL, performs fundamental and applied research in intelligent, secure, communicative, and advanced software
systems. It promotes interdisciplinary research and closely cooperates with other high-profile research centres in Luxembourg and beyond, as well as with industry and society,
including the newly established Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA). The DCS entertains various successful and growing teaching programs and supports various lifelong learning
activities. It will strongly profit from Luxembourg's involvement in the EU High Performance Computing (EuroHPC) initiative.
Living in Luxembourg: Luxembourg is a cosmopolitan country, the green heart of Europe combining the convenience of a metropolis with a human touch
(www.euraxess.lu). There are International/European schools as well as international tracks in local schools. The main part of the University is situated in
Esch-Belval, a new and modern campus in a highly original environment with excellent public transport connections.
