Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence
UNIVERSITY RESEARCH CLUSTER on DATA ANALYTICS and ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE in X
The university research cluster on Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in X is developing cutting-edge technologies on AI towards interdisciplinary research. The university's AI cluster is now seeking outstanding applicants for the posts of Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Research Assistant to work on a collaborative project between the Department of Computer Science and School of Chinese Medicine. The aim of the project is to develop computational methods to explicitly model the multi-level regulatory network evolution in inflammation-induced cancer by analysing multiple, heterogeneous ‘omics' data.
The primary responsibilities for the candidates are to develop novel algorithms to model and analyse evolving multi-level regulatory network. The candidates are expected to have a PhD degree in computer science, electronic engineering, bioinformatics or a related field and sufficiently demonstrate abilities to conduct high-quality research in one of the following areas: (i) probabilistic graphical model; (ii) evolving network/graph analytics and mining; (iii) biomedical data mining. Proficiency in data mining and machine learning techniques and programming (e.g., Python, R, or MATLAB) is essential. Experience with ‘omics' data analysis is a plus. Applicants should demonstrate great oral and written communication skills and the ability to effectively work in a multidisciplinary research team.
Initial appointment will be made on a fixed term contract of up to two years, starting in the Fall of 2018. Re-appointment thereafter is subject to mutual agreement and availability of funding.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applicants are invited to submit their applications at the HKBU e-Recruitment System (jobs.hkbu.edu.hk). Applicants not invited for interview 8 weeks after the closing date may consider their applications unsuccessful.
