DATA SCIENCE:

Multiple postdoc positions are available to work with Prof. Roberto Trotta as part of his new group within SISSA's novel Data Science Initiative. The group will expand its world-class expertise in Bayesian inference and model comparison, hierarchical models, astrostatistics and cosmology in the direction of interpretable machine learning, symbolic AI and Bayesian learning.  The successful candidate(s) will thus have the opportunity to contribute shaping the aims and direction of the project.

Applicants should have a strong first degree in a computational subject (e.g. computer science, mathematics or statistics, physics) and a PhD on a related discipline. We are looking for individuals comfortable with cross-disciplinary research, original thinkers with a desire to pursue creative ideas and outstanding communication skills. A track record of publications in machine learning is desirable. Women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

COSMOLOGY:

Postdoc position available to work with Prof. Roberto Trotta as part of his new group within SISSA's novel Data Science Initiative. The group will expand its world-class expertise in Bayesian inference and model comparison, hierarchical models, astrostatistics and cosmology in the direction of interpretable machine learning, symbolic AI and Bayesian learning.  This position is to work on the development and application of machine learning methods for supernova type Ia cosmology.

Applicants should have a strong first degree in physics, theoretical physics or astronomy and a PhD on a related discipline. We are looking for individuals comfortable with cross-disciplinary research, original thinkers with a desire to pursue creative ideas and outstanding communication skills. A track record of publications in machine learning and/or supernova type Ia cosmology is desirable. Women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants should upload a CV including full list of publications, contact details for three referees (at least two academic), and a brief research interests statement (2 A4 pages). Successful applicants will be appointed for an initial period of two years, with the possibility of an extension afterwards.

The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) is a PhD school and research institute located in the beautiful North-Eastern Italian seaside city of Trieste.  SISSA focuses on excellence in education and research in Physics, Mathematics, Neuroscience and their interdisciplinary applications. The Data Science initiative, funded by an Excellence grant from the Italian government, aims to build a world-leading Data Science cross-disciplinary group. SISSA enjoys a high scientific reputation and strong academic links with other top institutions internationally. Trieste offers a very high quality of life, and is close to UNESCO world heritage sites including the city of Venice, the Dolomites and the Croatian coast.
