Are you passionate about foundations and applications of machine learning? We are seeking four PhD candidates and one postdoctoral researcher for the recently established Mercury Machine Learning Lab (MMLL). In this lab, researchers from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) will be working together with data scientists from Booking.com to develop the machine learning foundations for a new generation of recommendation systems. Motivated by real-world problems faced in industry, we will investigate fundamental problems regarding generalization and bias removal in data analysis.
- Position 1: Bridging online and offline evaluation (supervisor: prof.dr. Maarten de Rijke)
- Position 2: Avoiding filter bubbles by correcting for selection bias (supervisor: prof.dr. Joris M. Mooij)
- Position 3: Domain generalization and domain adaptation (supervisor: prof.dr. Joris M. Mooij)
- Position 4: Training NLP Models for Better Generalisation (supervisors: dr. Ivan Titov & dr. Wilker Aziz)
In addition, we invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher to assist with the research and the supervision of the PhD students.
