I keep posting ads for postdocs with other people but this is actually to work with little old me!
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Rutgers University is seeking a dynamic and motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to work on developing distributed machine learning algorithms that work on complex neuroimaging data. This work is in collaboration with the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, New Mexico under NIH Grant 1R01DA040487-01A1.
Candidates with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics or related areas with experience in one of
- distributed signal processing or optimization
- image processing with applications in biomedical imaging
- machine learning theory (but with a desire to interface with practice)
- privacy-preserving algorithms (preferably differential privacy)
are welcome to apply. Strong and self-motivated candidates should also have
- a strong mathematical background: this project is about translating theory to practice, so a solid understanding of mathematical formalizations is crucial;
- good communication skills: this is an interdisciplinary project with many collaborators
The Fellow will receive valuable experience in translational research as well as career mentoring, opportunities to collaborate with others outside the project within the ECE Department, DIMACS, and other institutions.
The initial appointment is for 1 year but can be renewed subject to approval. Salary and compensation is at the standard NIH scale for postdocs.
To apply, please email the following to Prof. Anand D. Sarwate (firstname.lastname@example.org):
