To continue the support for the mathematical foundations of AI, the WASP board has decided to support four assistant professorships within the program on mathematics for artificial intelligence within the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP-AI/MATH). The following position refers to the assistant professorship at Lund University.

Assistant professor position within WASP-AI/MATH at Lund University

The Mathematics Department at Lund University, Faculty of Engineering invites applications for a position as Assistant Professor in Mathematical Statistics.

This tenure track position is part of an initiative within the program on mathematics for artificial intelligence within the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software program (WASP-AI/MATH). The assistant professor is expected to recruit and lead a research group with two two-year postdoc positions and one Ph.D. student, funded by the WASP program. The holder of the position is expected to contribute to an active and creative research environment at the department and to the activities of the WASP program. Teaching duties will correspond to approximate 30% of a full-time volume, and can include courses in mathematical statistics on all levels and supervision of thesis projects.

Subject description

The current development in AI strongly relies on theoretical development in several areas in mathematics and statistics. This subject seeks to strengthen the foundations in areas such as robust distance measures, interpretable formulations of learning structures, probabilistic hierarchical modelling, optimal transport, stochastic partial and ordinary differential equations, misspecified modelling, and algorithms and theory for efficient optimisation.
