    Two Postdoc Positions in Generative Modelling with Applications to Physical Systems and Life Science – DTU Compute

    We invite applications for two distinct two-year postdoctoral positions that promise a platform for professional growth and the prospect of contributing to cutting-edge research with substantial real-world impact. These positions are embedded within collaborative research initiatives dedicated to advancing and applying advanced generative modelling techniques, including diffusion and score-based modelling, aimed at addressing complex challenges in the respective fields of physical systems and life science.

    The first position focuses on integrating physics-aware machine learning to enhance the computational efficiency of simulations critical for understanding natural phenomena and advancing technologies for environmental sustainability. To allow larger and more complex simulations of physical systems, we wish to do simulations where the physics only has been solved in a few discrete points and then use deep generative models to, e.g., fill in the simulation in the remaining space in a physically correct way. We want to initially attempt this for magnetic fields because magnets are used in many sustainable applications, and their physics is well-described and understood. This role will work initially on learning deep generative models to interpolate and extrapolate in a physically correct way by training it not only on magnetic field simulations but also defining the model such that Maxwell’s equations governing the physics of magnetic fields are fulfilled. This technique can then be transferred to additional physics subsequently by defining similar appropriate models for these. The postdoc will be co-supervised by Professor Rasmus Bjørk from DTU Energy.

    The second postdoc position will be affiliated with the Centre for Basic Machine Learning in Life Science (MLLS,, a centre established to develop a solid machine learning foundation for research in the life sciences. This role focuses on methodological developments of deep generative models, particularly diffusion and score-based models, with potential applications in any branch of the life sciences. In the centre, we are particularly interested in representation learning and in settings where data is noisy and incomplete. The position can be co-supervised by any other PI from MLLS.

    Both positions are methodologically oriented and prioritize the advancement of deep generative models.

    PhD Position in Geometric Deep Learning for Financial Investor Network Analysis – AU

    Applicants are invited for a PhD fellowship/scholarship at Graduate School of Technical Sciences, Aarhus University, Denmark, within the Electrical and Computer Engineering programme. The project is supported by a grant by the Independent Research Fund of Denmark for conducting basic research in Deep Learning-based financial investor network analysis. Work will be focused on proposing new techniques and methodologies, including graph neural networks, convolutional neural networks, and spatio-temporal deep learning models, for financial graphs coming from stock exchanges to detect investment activities, analysis of changes in investor activities over time, and investor community detection. The popularized description of the project is as follows:

    The inability of conventional financial models to meet empirical observations from real-world markets has led to a growing level of dissatisfaction. Existing models set unrealistic assumptions for investors’ behavioural characteristics and the information flow inside and outside the market. The few recent interdisciplinary studies following data-driven analyses are based on crude behavioural investor categorizations, generic attributes for expressing properties of these investor categories (like age and gender), and simple (linear) mathematical models.

    PhD Position in Distributed Learning and Inference for Artificial Intelligence of Things – AU

    We invite applications for a PhD position financed by the Horizon Europe project PANDORA and the NordForsk project Nordic University Cooperation on Edge Intelligence (NUEI). The selected candidate will have good opportunities to work, interact, and network with researchers, scientists, and engineers working in European Universities, Research Institutes, and Companies forming its consortium. In addition, the PhD candidate has opportunities to participate in the summer schools and PhD courses in NUEI.

    The PhD project aims at developing novel techniques for distributed learning and inference for Transformer-based Deep Learning models in the IoT-Edge-Cloud continuum. Large DNN models with enormous number of model parameters hinder their deployment on a single resource-constrained device. The project aims to design novel learning and inference algorithms to accelerate distributed learning and inference processes, for example, how to leverage model sparsity to reduce inference time and memory footprint, and how to leverage parallelism. In addition, from system perspective the project aims to efficiently manage the trade-off between resource utilisation, and inference accuracy, communication and computation time and energy consumption across the continuum, by adapting to the dynamic changes in the communication networks and data processing environment. We will propose and develop novel algorithms for dynamic workload distribution, load balancing, and energy management, to optimise distributed learning and inferencing in the IoT-Edge-Cloud continuum. The research outcomes will contribute to the advancement of resource-constraint foundation models.

    As part of the PhD project, the selected candidate will interact with the collaborators in the two projects, perform knowledge dissemination, e.g., through conference participation and project reporting to present their work, and have the opportunity to participate in activities of the project.
