Job description

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in Machine Learning (2 posts available) at the Predictive Analytics Lab (PAL) in the Department of Informatics at the University of Sussex. The duration of the position is originally for one or two years with the possibility of an extension. The position is part of the ERC funded project “Bayesian Models and Algorithms for Fairness and Transparency” (BayesianGDPR– led by Dr Novi Quadrianto.

It involves the development of novel inference and computational methods towards the realisation of fair and transparent machine learning systems in static and dynamic settings. In particular, the project will focus on Bayesian methods and their “deep” extension. The successful candidate will develop and apply a range of techniques in variational inference, generative models, and reinforcement learning.

The successful applicant should have a PhD in machine learning in a field related to our research area such as approximate inference, reinforcement learning along with a good publication record  in leading machine learning conferences (e.g. NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR). The salary offered will be appropriate to the qualifications, standing and experience of the successful candidate. Informal enquiries are welcome and can be made to Novi Quadrianto (N.Quadriantosussex.ac.uk).
