Three postdoc positions are available at Bocconi University (Milan, Italy), supervised by Giacomo Zanella (https://sites.google.com/site/gzanellawebpage/home) and funded by the ERC Starting Grant “Provable Scalability for high-dimensional Bayesian Learning”. Details and links to apply available at https://sites.google.com/site/gzanellawebpage/postdoc-positions-available.
The deadline for application is 15/02/2024 and the planned starting date is 01/05/2024 or later. Initial contracts are for 1 year and are extendable for further years under mutual agreement.
Candidates will conduct research on computational aspects of statistical and machine learning methods, with a particular focus on Bayesian methodologies. The research activity, both in terms of specific topic and research approach, can adapt to the profile and interests of the successful candidates. Beyond working with the supervisor and coauthors on topics related to the grant project (see https://sites.google.com/site/gzanellawebpage/research), candidates will get the chance to interact with various faculty members, postdocs and PhD students of the Stats&ML group at Bocconi (see e.g. researchers at https://bayeslab.unibocconi.eu/people and https://dec.unibocconi.eu/people).
Interested candidates are welcome to write to me (giacomo.zanella at unibocconi.it) for more information about the positions.
