Research Scientist- School of Data Science

Company: University of Virginia
Location: Charlottesville
Posted on: June 6, 2021

Job Description:

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.
