Position Title: Postdoc Positions in Geometry, Probability, and Deep Learning 

Position Type: Postdoctoral 

Quantity: 3 

Location: NTU, Singapore 

Deadline: 15/07/2022 

Subject Area: Mathematical Data Science 

Applications are invited for 3 postdoctoral positions in Geometry, Probability, and Deep Learning at the Department of Mathematics, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore. The ideal candidates will have an excellent research background in at least one of these fields, including particularly in infinite-dimensional Riemannian or metric geometry, infinite-dimensional probability or stochastic analysis, statistical learning theory, coding theory, inverse problems, or harmonic analysis. 

The positions are part of the project "Geometry, Probability, and Deep Learning" funded by Singapore's National Research Foundation and Nanyang Technological University Singapore. The goal of this project is to use geometric and probabilistic methods for analysing the effectiveness of deep learning, to use deep learning methods for improving algorithms in probability and geometry, to advance the mathematical foundations of these methods, and to develop applications in e.g. mathematical finance or biomedical shape analysis. The positions are for 2 years with optional prolongation to 3 years and come with an attractive salary package. The starting date is as soon as possible, any time from now. 

If you are interested, please send your CV, list of publications, research statement (1-2 pages), and names of 2 references in a single PDF to Philipp Harms as soon as possible. The search will continue until the positions are filled.

Research opportunity at the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore) 

I am looking for candidates to fill a position in my research group at the postdoctoral level. I am looking for mathematicians, statisticians, physicists, or candidates with diplomas in closely related fields, interested in research at the interface between geometry, dynamics, and learning. Even though it is not a necessary condition, candidates with expertise in reservoir computing, geometric mechanics, variational and structure-preserving integration, dynamical systems, or statistical learning will be highly considered. 

The postdoctoral position is a two-year full-time research position with no teaching responsibilities. Applicants should hold a PhD diploma already at the time of application. For administrative reasons, the starting date for this position has to be fixed for a date before the end of December 2022. 

Interested candidates should contact Prof. Juan-Pablo Ortega at Juan-Pablo.Ortega@ntu.edu.sg
