Interested in working with us?

We are looking for talented and highly motivated computer scientists (or people with a related background) interested in the design, development, and analysis of novel machine learning methods. Particularly, we are currently offering positions focusing on the following topics:

  • Machine learning for graphs / geometric deep learning
  • Robust and adversarial machine learning
  • Transfer learning
  • ML models for temporal data (e.g. event sequences)
  • Anomaly and outlier detection
  • Uncertainty in ML (e.g. Bayesian neural nets)

The developed methods will be applied and evaluated in various domains such as the natural sciences (e.g., molecular graphs), the field of engineering (sensor and diagnosis signals), and the web (e.g., social networks, knowledge graphs).

Candidate skills & profile

  • University degree (M.Sc.) with very good grades in Computer Science or related fields (For PostDocs: Ph.D. in the corresponding area and publications at the following venues: ICML, KDD, NeurIPS, ICLR, or WWW)
  • Strong background in machine learning / data mining
  • Strong programming skills in at least one programming language (preferably Python and with experience in TensorFlow, PyTorch or similar)
  • Good English language skills (your responsibilities include to write publications and to give international presentations)
  • Knowledge of Russian is an asset, but not a must (e.g. participation in national conferences)

How to apply?

Please contact us and send your application (in a single file in pdf format; no links to external files; in English or Russian) by email; subject: PhD Application). The application should include:

  • a brief statement of interests in the form of a motivation letter,
  • a curriculum vitae, copies of certificates,
  • a summary/abstract of the master thesis,
  • and (if already available) a list of publications.

A list of references (names, contact information) is helpful as well.

Applications will be considered as they are received and until the positions are filled.
