KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The division of Software and Computer Systems (SCS) at the Department of Computer Science (CS), KTH, is looking for an excellent candidate for one postdoctoral position in the area of scalable machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL), and reinforcement learning (RL). The successful candidate will join the distributed computing group (https://dcatkth.github.io), in which the research is directed towards fundamental aspects of software and computer systems with a focus on distributed computing, decentralized ML, and scalable platforms for data-intensive computing and ML. In particular, the position is associated with the following sub-topics:
What we offer
We are offering a two-year postdoctoral position, in which the successful candidate will conduct research in the aforementioned research areas, interact with doctoral and master students, and be involved in collaborative work in national and international projects. She/he will also contribute to scientific publications, as well as to new grant applications.
Applicants must hold or be about to receive a doctoral degree in Computer Science (or equivalent). The doctoral degree must have been obtained within the last three years from the application deadline (some exceptions for special grounds, for instance sick leave and parental leave). The candidate should have a strong background at distributed systems, machine learning, deep learning, and reinforcement learning. The successful applicant should have an outstanding research and publication record, as well as experience in developing systems and applications. Strong skills in modern machine learning frameworks (e.g., TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch) is a requirement. We are looking for a strongly motivated person, who is able to work independently, as well as in an international research team. Well-developed analytical and problem solving skills are a requirement. Good command of English orally and in writing is required to present and publish research results.
The applicant should have a well-established international research collaboration network as should be indicated by visits, guest talks or internships outside applicant’s home institutions. Moreover, the applicant should have a gook knowledge in data-intensive computing frameworks (e.g., Apache Spark). Track record in contributing to Open-Source is a plus.
Great emphasis will be placed on personal competence and suitability.
