Research Fellow, Machine Learning, CCM

Applications are invited for Flatiron Research Fellowships (FRF) at the Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM), in the areas of:
• Machine learning for computational physics, chemistry and biology
• Probabilistic and differential programming
• Statistical methodology, modeling, and inference
• Mathematics and algorithms of deep neural networks

FRF positions are initially two-year appointments, renewable for a third year contingent on performance. The anticipated start date is between July and October 2021. Flatiron Research Fellows will report to research scientists, group leaders, or the Center Director, as appropriate. They are also encouraged to carry out an independent research program, collaborate with other Flatiron Institute members, participate in the vibrant activities of the Institute such as workshops and seminars, and to mentor students through our summer internship program. They are expected to disseminate their results through scientific publication, conferences, and/or software distribution. Fellows receive a research budget and have access to the Flatiron Institute's powerful scientific computing resources. Fellows may be eligible for subsidized housing within walking distance of the Institute.

CCM is a leading center for the study of applied mathematics, machine learning, statistics, signal processing and related fields.Tremendous opportunities exist at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, statistics, and their scientific applications, with the lines between theory, algorithm development and software implementation often blurred. A major goal of CCM is to develop the next generation of simulation and analysis methods and to make themavailable to the scientific community. The Center also hosts an array of meetings, workshops and conferences, serving as a focal point for the field internationally. The Center is expected to double in size to about 60 members, including short- and long-term visitors. The Flatiron Institute, located in the heart of New York City, also hosts the Center for Computational Astrophysics, Center for Computational Biology, Center for Computational Quantum Physics, Scientific Computing Core, and the new Center for Computational Neuroscience.
