Post-Doc position at the Artificial Intelligence Center at Artificial Intelligence Center, Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU in Prague

Updated: 3 months ago
Deadline: 16 Oct 2019

The Planning Group opens a call for applications for fully-funded postdoctoral positions. 

 

About Us

We are a member of the newly established Research Center for Informatics with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague. Research of the Planning Group (http://aic.fel.cvut.cz/planning/) involves research of basic principles of classical planning and heuristics, but also on variants such as multi-agent planning and on the application of planning to real-world problems.


As a postdoc at our group, you will join a team of both leading researchers and young, highly motivated colleagues who are passionate about the topics of their research:

  • Classical Planning
  • Use of invariants in optimal planning (graph theory, complexity theory)
  • Integration of domain-specific solvers to improve the efficiency of classical planning on particular domains (puzzles, logistics, videogames)
  • The use of machine learning techniques in planning and extraction of structural information (machine learning, deep learning, neural networks)
  • Plan optimization
  • Multi-Agent Planning
  • Measuring and reducing privacy leakage (secure multiparty computation)
  • Developing a privacy-preserving planner (cryptography, security)
  • Optimal multi-agent planning based on finite-state machine intersection
  • Temporal Planning
  • Reasoning about time and resources
  • Problem reformulation 
  • Non-deterministic Planning
  • Planning with non-deterministic events
  • Planning in the adversarial environment

 

Requirements

  • Ph.D. degree in computer science, or related fields
  • Evidence of successful research accomplishments, such as papers focused on planning problems/algorithms at top AI conferences (AAAI, IJCAI, ICAPS, KR, AAMAS, NIPS, ECAI) or published in high-quality journals

 

Applications

If you fit this profile and you are interested in pursuing academic research path, you are encouraged to send your application to katarina.takusova@agents.fel.cvut.cz. The application should include:

1.    CV

2.    A short research statement (max. 200 words)

3.    The publication record with the indication of 3 most important papers and detailed explanation of their impact

 

Work & Life in Prague

The exact starting date is negotiable. Typical positions are for 2 years and can be prolonged. The institute is located in Prague’s downtown. The position will offer a competitive salary with respect to the costs and quality of life in Prague.
