3 Years Postdoctoral Researcher position on Physics-based AI at UiT, Norway
The position being announced here relates to Physics-based Artificial Intelligence. The position entails developing machine learning models towards interpretable and scalable artificial intelligence, and with life science interpretations from 2D/3D microscopy (fluorescently-labeled and label-free) image and video data of biological samples as the target application area. The position offers a unique opportunity of developing career in a highly multidisciplinary (artificial intelligence, physics/optics, life science, computational modeling) cutting edge research arena with a potential to create high impact. The candidate will have opportunity to work across two teams – Bio-AI Lab (https://www.bioailab.org/) and 3Dnanosopy group (https://www.3dnanoscopy.com/) which are both funded through several prestigious EU and Research Council of Norway projects.
Duration: The normal period of appointment is three years. Start date: early 2023.
Location: UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø, Norway
Salary: The remuneration for Postdoctoral research fellow is in accordance with the State salary scale code 1352. At present gross salary for postdoctoral fellow starts at NOK 553,100 per annum. A compulsory contribution of 2% to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund will be deducted.
