PhD and PostDoc Positions (Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in)

PhD and PostDoc Positions (Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in) in the area of Machine Learning and Data Analytics.

We are looking for talented and highly motivated computer scientists (or people with a related background) interested in the design, development, and analysis of novel machine learning methods. Particularly, we are currently offering positions focusing on the following topics:

  • robust and adversarial machine learning
  • transfer learning
  • anomaly and outlier detection in event and sequence data
  • machine learning for graphs

The developed methods will be applied and evaluated in various domains such as the natural sciences (e.g., molecular graphs), the field of engineering (sensor and diagnosis signals), and the web (e.g., social networks, knowledge graphs). Some of the positions are supported by the BMW AG and, thus, offer the opportunity for close collaborations in the field of machine learning in the automotive industry.

** Candidate skills & profile **

  • University degree (M.Sc.) with very good grades in Computer Science or related fields (For PostDocs: Ph.D. in the corresponding area and publications at the relevant top-tier venues)
  • Strong background in machine learning / data mining
  • Strong programming skills in at least one programming language (preferably Python)
  • Good English language skills (your responsibilities include to write publications and to give international presentations)
  • Knowledge of German is an asset, but not a must (e.g. participation in national conferences)

** How to apply? **

Please send your application (in a single file in pdf format; in English or German) by email to Prof. Dr. Stephan Günnemann (guennemann@in.tum.de; subject: PhD Application). The application should include a brief statement of interests/motivation letter, a curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, a summary/abstract of the master thesis, and (if already available) a list of publications. Applications will be considered as they are received and until the positions are filled.
