The University of Chicago is seeking a Postdoctoral Scholar focused on jointly advancing scientific discovery and AI. AI & Science is a major interdisciplinary research initiative at the Data Science Institute (DSI) focused on developing a new paradigm of AI-enabled scientific discovery in which AI is an integral component of the scientific method, guiding the construction of hypotheses, designing sequences of experiments, and analyzing data to develop new hypotheses, while advancing core AI principles. Scientific domains of interest include, but are not limited to, physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, materials science, and environmental science; postdocs will explore AI, machine learning, and signal processing that leverages both training data and physical models.
The DSI is part of a vibrant and growing data science community which includes departments across campus as well as the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC).
Drawing on the University of Chicago’s top-ranked programs, world-renowned faculty, as well as a vibrant and quickly expanding data science ecosystem, this is an opportunity to engage in field-defining data science and artificial intelligence research. Our positions carry a competitive salary, generous research funding stipends, and benefits.
