Position: Research Fellowship - Artificial Intelligence
Institution: European Space Agency
Location: Noordwijk, Netherlands
Duties: The successful candidate will carry out research in artificial intelligence with a particular emphasis on methods allowing realising truly autonomous control and operations. Areas of research are partly chosen by the successful candidate based on his/her own expert judgements and insight into trends and developments, and partly chosen by the team as to follow strategic directions of the Agency
Requirements: A degree in either artificial intelligence, computer science, mathematics or engineering; PhD (completed before take up of duty) on Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Robotics or Machine Learning, subject of the thesis being relevant to the description of the tasks outlined above and aim at an academic/research career; proficiency in C++ and Python programming languages; aptitude to contextualise specialised areas of research and quickly assess their potential with respect to other domains and applications; academic networking to add functioning links to universities and research institutes
   
Text: ) is looking for a highly motivated young researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence Duties and Tasks The successful candidate will carry out research in artificial intelligence with a particular emphasis on Scientifically she/he will in particular: Propose and perform research in the field of artificial intelligence, where appropriate together with universities of ESA Member States (in particular through the Ariadna programme); synergies with space systems; Bring forth one or more of the following resear ch lines: a) Differential intelligence (use of high order automated differentiation for robotic behaviour design), b) Machine Learning in space applications, c) (deep) Reinforcement learning for approximately optimal control. ) to run scienti fic competitions on advanced machine learning or general AI problems. Team The Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) is a group of research fellows (post docs) and young graduates who fields and aim at an academic career. Its task is to monitor, perform and foster research on advanced space systems, innovative concepts and working with academi a and operates as a truly interdisciplinary team bound to high scientific standards. Via its research, the team acts as a cross departmental pathfinder to explore novel, potentially promising areas for ESA and the space sector, ranging from applied to basi c fundamental research topics. An important task of the team is to communicate scientific trends and results, as input to the strategic planning of the Agency The Research Field The team has been active in the field of artificial intelligence since 20 07. Research areas, so far, included swarm intelligence, evolutionary computing, tree searches, machine learning, deep learning, bio inspired sensors, robotic vision and serious gaming. The field is closely linked to computer science in which the team has performed research projects related to distributed parallel GPU computing (pagmo2), high order differential intelligence (pyaudi) and differentiable genetic programming (d CGP). as well as on the overall research of the ACT and the main activities lines of ESA. Specificities of Research Fellowships in the Advanced Concepts Team The position of R esearch ellow at ESAs Advanced Concepts Team is similar to a regular academic P ost placement however with a few notable key differences: ACT RFs have no teaching obligations owever, they will likely be involved in the mentoring of oung raduate rainees and stag aires (student interns) within the team As the team does not have a professor like position, ACT RFs are academically more independent than most post docs This implies ore freedom but also more responsibility for their research directions and approaches. ACT RF are joining a diverse, changing and interdisciplinary research team embedded in a large space agency, in contrast to a more specialised, focused research grou ACT RFs need to actively reach out to other disciplines, to bring in their competences to interdisciplinary research projects and to encourage other researchers to join them in their core research projects (research at the intersections of disciplines). ACT RFs need to communicate their expertise and research results internally and externally, including potential implications and importance for ESAs long term strategy. Who can apply Required Qualifications The programme is open to suitably qualified women and men. Preference will be given to applications submitted by candidates within five years of receiving their PhD. The Research Fellow Programme is open to nationals of the following states: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK, Slovenia as an Associate Memb er or Canada as a Cooperating State, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia as European Cooperating States (ECS). Applicants must have obtained: A degree in either artificial intelligence, computer science, mathematics or engineering; PhD (completed before take up of duty) on Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Robotics or Machine Learning, subject of the thesis being relevant to the description of the tasks outlined above and aim at an academic/research career. Proficiency in C++ and Python p rogramming languages. Experiences in open source projects, GPU programming, distributed computing and cloud computing are considered as strong assets. Additional Requirements: ability for and interest in prospective interdisciplinary research; aptitude to contextualise specialised areas of research and quickly assess their potential with respect to other domains and applications; academic networking to add functioning links to universities and research institutes; ability to work in a team, while being able to work individually regarding his/her own personal research plans and directions; natural curiosity and a passion for new subjects and research areas; good methodo logical and organisation skills; pplicants must be fluent in Englis h and/or French, working languages of the Agency. A good prof iciency in English is required. Application Process and Deadlines Please fill in the online application form attaching to it, in one document only, your CV, motivation letter and your research proposal. Candidates must also arrange for up to mentioned in the subject of the email. Applications satisfying the general conditions for eligibility and submitted by uly , will be evaluated and successful applicants will be invited for an interview. All applications will be considered until the available post is filled. A first round of interview s is expected to take place in July 2017 timeframe, with the option of pre screening interviews via videoconference.
