Qualification Details

The applicant must hold a doctoral degree in Artificial Intelligence/Data Mining/Machine Learning/Information Technology or related fields. The applicant needs to demonstrate a strong research profile in the fields related to topics of interest for this position, including recent activities with high impact. The scientific production is expected to be published in high-quality, peer-reviewed research journals and conferences. Documented experience from innovation, research and development in an industrial environment is also a strong merit. The applicant should share the value that diversity and equality among researchers and teachers brings higher quality to research and education. Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position. The certificate proving the qualification requirement is met, must be received before the employment decision is made. Primarily should those who have graduated no more than three years ago before last application date, be considered.

For appointment as a postdoctoral researcher, the following assessment criteria will be applied:

  • Ability to conduct research of high international quality in artificial intelligence, specifically machine learning
  • Ability to conduct research independently
  • Documented experience from research in collaboration with industrial partners and/or interdisciplinary teams
  • Ability to conduct high-quality teaching and to develop courses at different levels
  • Experience in supervision of master / PhD students
  • Ability to attract external funding
  • Dynamism, curiosity, independence, creativity and good teamwork
  • Willingness to address opportunities and challenges within AI and machine learning

Responsibilities/Job Description

This is a two year position with a possiblity to extension with one year if additional external funding is received. The recruited person will be part of a research project centered around improved preparedness for future pandemics and other health crises through large-scale disease surveillance. The overall aim is to develop new tools and computer infrastructures to improve preparedness for future pandemics, major disease outbreaks and other health crises in the population. In the development, we will use applied artificial intelligence, machine learning and other methods that are suitable for exploratory data analysis based on extensive amounts of data, originating from e.g., population and health care registers, web applications, mobile devices and monitors in public places. The project is a collaboration between Lund, Halmstad and Umeå University together with healthcare and industrial partners.

The current position has a focus on developing machine learning methods that can analyze and find deviating patterns in healthcare data such as to discover e.g. vaccination side effects or upcoming disease outbreaks. Deep learning will be one of the technologies explored during this development.

The employment also includes teaching responsibilities corresponding to a maximum of 20% of full-time. AI and machine learning is an important part of our education. The recruited person will have an opportunity to advance Bachelor and Master level courses such as Artificial Intelligence, Learning Systems, Data Mining, Applied Data Mining, and Deep Learning.

Principal duties

The duties will be:

  • To undertake machine learning research and application development within the project
  • To contribute to academic publications and conference papers (where appropriate leading on these)
  • To contribute to report writing
