Seven PostDoc positions at Uppsala University within the eSSENCE initiative

 
During autumn 2019, eSSENCE@UU invited for Letters of Interest to identify 2-year post-doctoral projects focussing on new e-Science methods and tools within the field of AI for the sciences. Seven projects have now been prioritized and will be supported by eSSENCE. The titles of the projects, including links to the announcements of the positions, are found below:
 
This eSSENCE initiative is connected to the new cross-disciplinary effort AI4Research at Uppsala University, with the aim to specifically support this effort by research on new e-Science methods and tools within AI to provide a foundation for the future development of the field.
 

AI for the sciences: New e-Science methods and tools

Apply for a Post-doctoral fellowship with application deadline 12 November.

Uppsala University has launched an initiative in Artificial Intelligence for the Sciences, manifested in part by the announcement of the Beijer professorship and also by other planned and decided initiatives across the disciplinary domains.

As a contribution to the development of the field, the Strategic Collaborative Research Programme in e-science, eSSENCE, has decided to submit a request for proposals for post-doctoral fellowships in the area “AI for the sciences: New e-Science methods and tools”.

Apply no later than 12 November.

Postdoc/researcher position in the area of privacy-preserving federated machine learning

We are always interested in getting in touch with excellent candidates that want to do research in the group. Contact Andreas Hellander (andreas.hellander@it.uu.se) to discuss opportunities.

Open positions

We currently have an opening for a 2 year postdoc/researcher position in the area of privacy-preserving federated machine learning. If your PhD degree was in <3 years from the application end date, you should apply for the postdoc version of the ad:

http://www.uu.se/en/about-uu/join-us/details/?positionId=257859 

If your degree is older than 3 years, apply instead for the researcher position:

We are always happy to assist motivated candidates to apply for their own funding/scholarships to join the lab! Here are some annually occurring opportunities:

Postdocs or researchers to work in the interdisciplinary research project Hierarchical Analysis of Temporal and Spatial Data (HASTE)

We are recruiting up to three postdocs or researchers to work in the interdisciplinary research project Hierarchical Analysis of Temporal and Spatial Data (HASTE),
see http://haste.research.it.uu.se, within the research groups of Prof. Carolina Wählby,
see http://www.cb.uu.se/~carolina/, Assoc. Prof. Andreas Hellander,
see http://hellanderlab.research.it.uu.se and Assoc. Prof. Ola Spjuth,
see http://www.farmbio.uu.se/forskning/researchgroups/pb.

Research project: You will join a recently started project that will run for 5 years and which is funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF). This interdisciplinary project aims at developing new, intelligent ways of processing and managing very large amounts of microscopy images in order to be able to leverage the imminent explosion of image data from modern experimental setups in the biosciences. One central idea is to represent datasets as intelligently formed and maintained information hierarchies, and to prioritize data acquisition and analysis to certain regions/sections of data based on automatically obtained metrics for usefulness and interestingness. To arrive at such smart systems for scientific discovery in image data, we will pursue a range of topics such as efficient data mining in image data, machine learning models with quantifiable confidence that learn an objects interestingness, and development of intelligent and efficient cloud systems capable of mapping data and compute to a variety of cloud computing and data storage e-infrastructure based on the quality and interestingness of the data. Project partners are at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University, Vironova AB and AstraZeneca AB.

We are currently seeking to fill three roles in the project. More information about the specific projects can be found on the project webpage:

  • Detection of informative data from large-scale spatial and temporal experiments (with placement in the Wählby lab)
  • Smart systems for creation and maintenance of information hierarchies in multi-cloud environments (with placement in the Hellander Lab)
  • Machine-learning with quantifiable confidence or probability (with placement in the Spjuth lab)

We welcome applications no later that 2017-05-23. All applications must be submitted via the online recruitment portal. See http://haste.reserach.it.uu.se/recruitment for more information.

Researcher Position in Scientific Computing/Systems Biology

Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6,5 billion.

The Department of Information Technology conducts research and education in a spectrum of areas within Computer Science and Information Technology. The research is organized in five Divisions, and the research at the Division of Scientific Computing has a broad scope, ranging from numerical analysis over software development and high-performance computing to collaborative projects in Computational Science and Engineering and industrial applications.

The researcher will work in an research project funded by eSSENCE, a strategic collaborative research programme in e-science between three Swedish universities with a strong tradition of excellent e-science research: Uppsala University, Lund University and Umeå University. e-science promotes innovation in collaborative, computationally or data intensive research across all disciplines. In Uppsala, a number of projects are supported by the programme. Most of them are in computer simulation and data science in biology, chemistry, and physics. More information about eSSENCE is found at the homepage http://essenceofescience.se/.

The project, described below, will be conducted as part of a collaboration between the the research groups headed by associate professor Andreas Hellander, Uppsala University, see http://hellanderlab.research.it.uu.se, and associate professor Igor Adameyko, Karolinska Institute, see http://ki.se/en/fyfa/developmental-biology-and-regenerative-medicine.
