Doctoral researcher / PhD - Statistical Machine Learning research group
100%, Zurich, fixed-term
Thematically, possible topics may be in the intersection of high-dimensional and non-parametric statistics, theory for overparameterized models, frequentist inference, and theory for domain generalization and distribution shifts. Related areas of interest can also be discussed. For a flavor of recent work in our group, please visit sml.inf.ethz.ch. Important is a combined passion for solving relevant data science problems in practice with the curiosity to gain a deep theoretical understanding of modern phenomena in data science.
Qualifications and Skills:
- an excellent completed (by the start date) Master's degree preferably in Statistics, Mathematics or Data Science, but also accepting applications from Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or other strongly mathematically oriented programs
- research experience in the field of machine learning (at least one project on a theoretical ML topic)
- proven software engineering skills in Python or similar
- fluency in English
You should be highly self-motivated, be interested in tackling challenging research problems, have organizational skills, be open-minded, and have scientific leadership potential.
