Post-doc position available in Scientific Machine Learning (SciML)

We are happy to announce the availability of a new post-doc position in areas relevant to Scientific Machine Learning (SciML).

The position resides in the Applied Mathematics Group of the Computational Science Initiative (CSI) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and the post-doctoral researcher will work with Dr. Byung-Jun Yoon and Dr. Nathan Urban on a project focused on scientific data reduction.

We invite outstanding candidates to apply for a post-doctoral research associate position in applied mathematics, machine learning, and scientific computing. This position offers a unique opportunity to conduct research in emerging interdisciplinary research problems at the intersection of applied mathematics, machine learning, and high-performance computing (HPC) with applications in diverse scientific domains of interest to BNL and the Department of Energy (DOE).

Topics of specific interest include:

  • optimal decision-guided data reduction
  • feature extraction/engineering in high-dimensional compositional workflows that involve machine learning (ML) models
  • Bayesian inference and uncertainty quantification in scientific ML models
  • learning/optimization of low-dimensional latent feature spaces for ML surrogates.

The position includes access to world-class HPC resources, such as the BNL Institutional Cluster and DOE leadership computing facilities. Access to these platforms will allow computing at scale and will ensure that the successful candidate will have the necessary resources to solve challenging DOE problems of interest.

This program provides full support for a period of two years at CSI with possible extension. Candidates must have received a doctorate (Ph.D.) in applied mathematics, statistics, computer science, or a related field (e.g., mathematics, engineering, operations research, physics) within the past five years. This post-doc position presents a unique chance to conduct interdisciplinary collaborative research in BNL programs with a highly competitive salary.
