We invite applications for open PhD and PostDoc positions in the ERC Project "Nonlinear Eigenproblems for Data Analysis".

  • PhD positions: The applicant should have a degree (diploma or master) in computer science, mathematics or physics. The position requires a very strong background in mathematics in particular linear algebra, statistics, probability, and optimization and strong analytical skills. Programming experience in C++ or MATLAB is required. A background in machine learning is appreciated but not necessary.
  • PostDoc positions: You have a strong publication record in the top journals/conferences of either machine learning, statistics or optimization. Moreover, you have a very good background in mathematics. Programming experience in C++ or MATLAB is a plus. The position is initially for one year with the possibility to extend it to up to four years.

Applications (CV, publication list) should be sent by email (single PDF) to:
