Applicants are invited for the post of a Research Associate in probabilistic machine learning.

You will join a team of probabilistic modelling and machine learning researchers developing new principles for AI-assistants, which are able to help their users even when the goals are only partially known, such as in the beginning of scientific research.  This will require expertise on multiple topics; you are expected to have experience in one or more of these and be interested in working with experts of the others. Keywords include advanced user modelling, automatic experimental design, Bayesian inference, human-in-the-loop learning, machine teaching, privacy-preserving learning, reinforcement learning and inverse reinforcement learning, and simulator-based inference. Initial applications will include decision making in personalized medicine, steering experimental design in drug design and synthetic biology, and design of digital twins and decision making with them. Prior experience on the application domains is a plus but not required.

The team is funded by an UKRI AI World-Learning Researcher Fellowship, and will be based in a new Centre for AI Fundamentals being established at the University of Manchester. You will have excellent opportunities for working with top-notch collaborators on use cases in application fields in the University of Manchester and industry, and machine learning collaborators at The Turing Institute and ELLIS, in the new ELLIS Unit Manchester.
