Postdoc/Research Associate at NYU in Machine Learning/Scientific Computing for high-dimensional systems

The Center for Data Science and the Courant Institute at New York University (NYU) invite applications for a postdoctoral or research associate position to lead scientific machine learning research as part of a new multi-institution international project, M²LInES. The scientific goal of this project is to develop machine learning techniques to improve climate change simulations.

The successful applicant will integrate the M²LInES NYU team, currently composed of Profs Joan Bruna, Carlos Fernandez-Granda and Laure Zanna, as well as multiple postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students, and collaborate closely with M²LInES researchers at other institutions. The successful candidate will contribute by developing independent ideas at the growing interface between Machine Learning and Climate Science. Topics currently under study include closure modeling for high-dimensional systems, uncertainty quantification, inference with massive heterogeneous noisy datasets, interpretability, latent space search, and dimensionality reduction, with the broader context of further integrating Machine Learning algorithms and foundations into Scientific Computing for physics applications (e.g., fluid flows).

This appointment, available immediately, will be for one year initially, with the possibility of renewal for up to 3 years, based on performance and availability of funding.
