Jobs at the Pioneer Centre for AI
- PhD openings: Join the 2023 cohort of Pioneer Centre for AI PhD students – we expect 15+ new students to start in the fall, across the centre’s partner universities. Each student will be employed at one of the partner universities AND become a part of the Pioneer Centre for AI. PhD students at the Pioneer Centre for AI have extraordinary access computing resources, to international researchers across many disciplines within computer sciences and other academic areas, as well as courses and events at the centre, and meaningful collaboration with industry, the public sector, and the start-up ecosystem. The application deadline for the projects is April 1st (May 1st for Aarhus University). You can read about the projects and find links to the application pages here>>.
- PhD Fellowship: All Danish universities (deadline 19 March 2023): Danish Data Science Academy (DDSA) invites applications for ten three-year PhD fellowship to visionary and ambitious young data scientists who want to pursue their own research ideas in collaboration with a Danish research environment. You can apply for a fellowship with a Pioneer Centre for AI faculty supervisor. Find more information and link to application here >>.
- Postdoc Fellowship: All Danish universities (deadline 19 March 2023). Danish Data Science Academy (DDSA) invites applications for six two-year postdoctoral fellowships to individual research projects. These fellowships will be awarded to visionary and ambitious young data scientists pursuing their own research ideas in collaboration with a strong hosting environment at a Danish research institution – including the Pioneer Centre for AI partner universities. It is a requirement that the applicant has a well-defined research proposal as well as an agreement with a host institution. Find more information and link to application here >>.
Jobs in Denmark
- Ph.D. and postdoc positions in quantum-inspired (tensor network) algorithms for differential equations ITU (deadline: 31 Marts 2023): The quantum algorithms group at the IT University of Copenhagen is inviting applications for several PhD and postdoc positions to work on quantum-inspired tensor network algorithms for solving differential equations. The project will involve both analytic and numerical components. Collaboration on projects on tensor network algorithms for quantum computing research might also be a part of the PhD and postdoc projects. Find more information and link to application here>>.
- Industrial PhD Fellowship – audio signal processing & machine learning for hearing assistive devices AAU & Oticon A/S and Dept. Electronic Systems (deadline: 16 April 2023): An industrial PhD position is offered by Oticon A/S and Dept. Electronic Systems, Aalborg University under the supervision of Dr. Meng Guo (Oticon), Prof. Jesper Jensen (Oticon/Aalborg University), and Prof. Zheng-Hua Tan (Aalborg University). An Industrial PhD project is an industrial-oriented research project carried out in collaboration between a private company in Denmark, an industrial PhD student, and a university. The research will be undertaken mainly at Oticon – a world-leading hearing aid manufacturer, and partly at Aalborg University – one of Europe’s top universities. The topic of the PhD project is: “Novel Feedback Prevention for Hearing Assistive Devices”. Find more information and link to application here>>.
- Assistant professorship in modular robotics and embodied artificial intelligence ITU (deadline: 19 June 2023): The Robotics, Evolution, and Art Lab (REAL) is based at the IT University of Copenhagen. Our vision is to do research on the border between fiction and fact, to create new, feasible solutions for the society of tomorrow. The lab has an interdisciplinary experimental practice and explores what-if scenarios using fundamental science and engineering to work towards the realization of these scenarios. Academically, the group is rooted in artificial intelligence with specific interests in robotics and evolutionary computation, but generally the research agenda is driven by opportunities arising both within science and in society.
