The University of Virginia was the first university in the US to
establish a School of Data Science (SDS), in part the result of the
largest gift in the university's 200-year history. As a School
without Walls, SDS is being established on guiding principles of
interdisciplinarity, responsibility, openness, transparency and
quality all applied for social good. This is a unique opportunity
to join a new type of young and vibrant organization pushing the
boundaries of education, research and community engagement.
To realize the new School of Data Science vision, UVA seeks
applicants for multiple Research Scientist positions to perform
research on projects related to deep learning and imaging, and to
develop new methods and algorithms that use deep learning.
Candidates must have a Master's of Science or equivalent degree
in Data Science, Computer Science, Systems Engineering, or related
disciplines. Candidates must also have expertise in supervised and
unsupervised learning methods, preferably using deep learning
methods including convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural
networks, autoencoders, and adversarial learning. Candidates must
be proficient in programming using python and associated machine
learning libraries and packages and have experience in the
application of machine learning techniques to image data.
In addition, candidates should have excellent oral and written
communication skills with the ability to present at professional
meetings. The ability to supervise undergraduate and graduate
students on multiple projects along with the PI and faculty members
in the School of Data Science is required.
Positions are one year with the possibility of renewal, based on
funding and satisfactory performance.
