Post Doctoral Research Associates in Artificial Intelligence for Materials Discovery (2 posts)

University of Liverpool - Department of Computer Science

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £34,805 to £40,322 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 29th September 2021
Closes: 28th October 2021
Job Ref: 034710

We have two vacancies for post-doctoral research associates to work on the Computer Science side of an interdisciplinary project on ‘Navigation of Chemical Space for Function’, funded through an EPSRC Programme Grant.  The research associates will contribute to developing a digital discovery platform that blends machine learning and explainable symbolic AI reasoning methods from computer science with physical science synthesis, measurement, computation and robotics capability. The work will accelerate the discovery of materials in the laboratory through the contribution of fundamental computer science. This project is led by the University of Liverpool and involves collaborators at the Departments of Chemistry at the University of Southampton and Imperial College London.

The ideal candidates will embrace interdisciplinary research and have a PhD in computer science (or a closely related subject) and experience (plus publications) in some field of explainable AI, such as Satisfiability checking, Satisfiability Modulo Theories, Optimisation Modulo Theories or constraint satisfaction. We will also consider candidates from related fields like verification, argumentation, and knowledge representation.

The posts are available until 30 November 2024.

The University has the right to close the vacancy early if it is deemed that there have been enough applications received.
