Candidates should work on mathematical and/or computer science aspects of problems arising in computational medicine and have documented experience in related interdisciplinary work. Particular research areas with relevant medical applications include (but are not limited to): reliability, dependability, interpretability, scalability and performance of machine learning methods with complex biomedical data sets; privacy-preserving and distributed data mining methods; computational biomedical image analysis; data-driven modelling and simulation; optimization and control of processes governed by partial differential equations; uncertainty quantification and reliable decision support systems in computational medicine; or machine learning and statistical methods for data analysis. The position is part of an initiative to strengthen the translational research between the University of Vienna and Medical University of Vienna. Consequently, the holder of the position is expected to be in close interaction and cooperation with related research groups at both universities.
