For the FWF-project "Reinforcement Learning: Beyond Optimality" we are looking for a PostDoc with strong background in mathematics (such as dynamic programming, probability theory, statistics, optimization, OR) and interest in reinforcement learning theory and analysis of algorithms. Highly qualified PhD candidates might be considered as well.
The position is for 2 years beginning from the negotiable project start (between autumn 2021 and early 2022) and will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate has been found. Salary is about 70000 EUR per year (after taxes and insurance contributions this is net about 45000 EUR) including benefits like health insurance.
The University of Leoben is one of Austrias three universities of technology and considered to be one of Austrias top universities. Leoben is a small yet nice town in the mountains, Austrias second largest city Graz is in commuting distance (45min by train) and the capital Vienna is not too far either (90min by car, 2h by train).
Applications should include a CV, up to three recent publications as well as contact information of up to three senior academics who are willing to serve as reference.
Please send applications as well as further enquiries to the project leader Ronald Ortner.
