- Do you have an interest in machine learning and artificial intelligence?
- Use your skills to reimagine complex processes to support decision-making
- Join CSIRO’s Data61, the largest data innovation group in Australia
CSIRO’s Data61 is seeking to appoint two CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellows for their Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence: Decision Making area.
As the successful candidate you will develop methods for optimal or robust sequential decision-making under uncertainty to solve pressing environmental and societal problems in health, conservation of biodiversity and biosecurity. Working along side CSIRO Scientists, you will assist to build the next generation of science tools using high performance computing infrastructure and cloud technologies to underpin the next generation of Australian science.
Your duties will include
- Develop methods for optimal or robust sequential decision-making under uncertainty to solve pressing environmental and societal problems in health, conservation of biodiversity and biosecurity.
- Implement these methods efficiently using programing tools such as C/C++, R, Python, TensorFlow and PyTorch.
- Carrying out evaluation of the developed software to demonstrate its competitiveness and fitness for purpose.
- Carry out high impact research of strategic importance to CSIRO, with the aim of achieving innovative and wide-reaching scientific outcomes and ideas for further research.
