Qualification Details

Minimum Qualifications

The successful candidates must have a Ph.D. degree (or receive it soon) from an accredited university in a relevant discipline, such as computer science, bioinformatics, statistics, statistical physics, computational social sciences, computational biology, climate physics, or a closely related discipline. Candidates should be Ph.D. degree holders by the appointment date.


  1. Research experience and thorough understanding of methods and concepts in machine learning and deep learning, particularly in natural language processing, computer vision, human-computer interaction, remote sensing, complex networks. We expect applicants to have leading authorship in publishing papers at top tier conferences and journals such as KDD, ICML, ACL, CVPR, AAAI, CHI, PNAS, Science, and Nature.
  2. Proficiency in computer programming using major programming languages(e.g., high-level languages commonly used in the scientific community such as Python, R, and Scala, as well as related machine learning and deep learning tools such as PyTorch, TensorFlow, and scikit-learn).
  3. Effective communication, collaboration, and organizational skills. Leadership abilities in managing projects, mentoring other members of the group.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We seek talented, highly motivated researchers. Successful candidates for this position will be new or recent Ph.D. graduates with outstanding research potential in the fields of computer science and related fields of data science. Our research group strives to advance the data science research field by developing new computing methods using machine learning and deep learning methods to analyze real-world data about society. Our projects leverage massive-scale datasets, computational models, and theories from sociology, communication, cognitive science, network science, econometrics, climate physics, computational biology etc. Current research includes interdisciplinary projects with a high impact on society, such as computational models for climate change, prediction of population dynamics and poverty mapping using high-resolution satellite images, and the development of new therapeutics using Artificial Intelligence based protein design.

About IBS Data Science Group

IBS Data Science Group at the Center for Mathematical and Computational Sciences, Institute for Basic Science focuses on problems in computational social science, which can have significant impacts on future societies.

Innovative analyses of data reveal interesting patterns that could provide keys to addressing social challenges. Data Science Group at the Pioneer Research Center for Mathematical and Computational Sciences, IBS, is pursuing research to analyze data from disparate sources such as the Internet, social networks, and biological signals to find meaningful insights for tackling various social problems. The group is currently working on improving the quality of life by developing algorithms that can characterize fake news, detect customs fraud, as well as that yield human behavior modeling to improve sleep disorders. Using high-resolution satellite imagery, the group is also developing artificial intelligence methods that can predict population dynamics and poverty mapping. We are dedicated to using data science and artificial intelligence to solving global societal problems.
