Your Role...

The successful candidates are expected to perform the following tasks :

  • Analyzing and investigating novel scenarios and use cases where the application of Machine Learning can bring some benefit
  • Developing novel ML-based solutions able to provide a good performance-complexity trade-off for the identified scenarios and use cases
  • Compare with conventional non-ML solutions and verify the benefits provided by ML in terms of trade-off between complexity and performance
  • Implementing and developing a software or hardware testing environment to compare and evaluate the proposed techniques
  • Disseminating results through scientific publications and conferences
  • The candidates are expected to actively contribute to the different research projects, either coordinating technical contribution and / or preparing project deliverables
  • Preparing new research proposals to attract industrial, national and European projects
  • Providing assistance in the supervision of PhD students
  • Your Profile...
