EURECOM hosts a well-established academic research group in the field of Data Science in Europe, as testified, for example, by the recent award of a Chair of Computational Statistics from the AXA Research Fund, and by awards such as the “H2020 European Stars Prize” for our research in Large-scale Distributed Systems and Big Data.
The activity of the professors in the department cover key areas, such as: computational statistics, theory and practice of machine learning, deep learning, adversarial learning and data economics, parallel and distributed algorithms and systems, natural language processing and information extraction, knowledge base development and semantic web technologies. Additional information on the Data Science Department is available at http://www.eurecom.fr/ds/
The new faculty is expected to join forces with the department by integrating, complementing and extending existing research activities with original approaches in one or several of the following areas:
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science, electrical engineering, applied mathematics or related disciplines, and have postdoctoral research experience in one or several of the above areas, as well as a strong publication record (e.g., WWW, VLDB, SIGMOD, KDD, SIGIR, ISWC, ACL).
The new faculty is expected to carry out fundamental research and to develop new graduate courses in the aforementioned domains.
While actively leading research with her/his team, the new faculty is also expected to enhance the resources of the department by attracting additional funding. Besides excellence in academic research, she/he must tackle real life data management problems raised by industrial applications, for example provided by EURECOM’s industrial partners.
