The position is part of the ERC-funded project "INFLUENCE: Influence-based Decision-making in Uncertain Environments" which aims to significantly scale up decision making for complex systems. For instance, we will develop techniques to enable city-scale coordination of traffic lights control or better autonomous warehousing (e.g., order picking) with large teams of robots.
You will work in a team of several postdocs and PhD students.
This position will emphasize theoretical aspects of decision making under uncertainty and multiagent reinforcement learning and coordination. You will be expected to work on individual research goals, as well as to play a key a role in analytical questions in joint research.
The ideal candidate:
- has a PhD degree in AI or closely related topics in computer science, math, or physics.
- has an excellent track record in the general area of machine learning, (multiagent) reinforcement learning or planning under uncertainty, as evidenced by publications at top-tier venues,
- has demonstrable experience in theoretical analysis of algorithms (e.g., proving approximation or sample bounds)
- is self motivated; has the drive to succeed individually
- is a team player; has the desire to succeed as a team
Additionally, experience with modern machine learning and/or robotics frameworks (e.g., tensor flow, ROS) or HPC computing frameworks (e.g. CUDA, openMP, MPI) will be considered a plus.
