Data Analytics Postdoc Posts Available

As part of a new Data Analytics Research Centre we are recruiting 1 senior and 2 junior postdoc researchers to work in the Dublin Institute of Technology.

The research centre will conduct research in data analytics and will develop demonstration applications in cooperation with an industry consortium. The research at DIT will have a particular focus on the development of novel interfaces for analytics-based systems and applicants should have a particular interest in this area.

Applicants should have the following attributes:

— Minimum of PhD or equivalent research experience (including industrial R&D) in computer science, maths, engineering or closely related discipline.
— Experience in software development, particularly in the implementation of machine learning algorithms, user interfaces or visualisation tools.
— Evidence of a strong research profile and publication record
— Proven, excellent programming skills – both front-end and back-end across a range of languages.

— Ability to identify and fulfill the academic writing requirements for target publications
— Knowledge of some current state-of-the-art commercial data analytics tools

Candidates with one or more of the following attributes will be preferred:

— Experience working as a post-doctoral researcher
— Experience of designing and running user trials
— Experience of working with industry partners on research projects
— Deep expert knowledge of one or more of active learning, case based reasoning, natural language generation, clustering and segmentation algorithms, human behaviour modelling, captology, plan recognition, information retrieval, user experience design, recommender systems
— Ability to design, install and manage software development environments (e.g. code management systems)
— Proven record of working with PhD students to help build their research skill and knowledge and to support and guide their professional development

While we are looking for candidates with PhDs (completed before Feb 2013) we may recruit software engineers without PhDs but with relevant experience.
