The Computational Research Division at Berkeley Lab has an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Scholar that specializes in Tensor Factorization and Mathematical Optimization. In this position, the researcher will contribute to the design and analysis of tensor factorization algorithms with applications to high-order scientific data, and the development of open-source software tools in Python or C/C++. This position will be part of an integrated team of computational scientists and applied mathematicians that work on knowledge extraction and physical law discovery from high-order experimental data to provide a foundation for the development of interpretable machine learning by the broader scientific and engineering community.

 

For full consideration, please submit a Cover Letter, a CV, and a Research Statement. The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Design novel tensor factorization algorithms and mathematical frameworks.
  • Publish results in peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
  • Contribute to open-source tensor factorization software packages.
  • Analyze high-order data collected from high-throughput experiments and facilities.
