The CIID research center of the Harbin Institute of Technology (Shenzhen campus, China) is looking to hire two postdoctoral researchers to carry research on data mining / big data.
The applicant must have:
- a Ph.D. in computer Science,
- a strong research background in data mining/big data or artificial intelligence,
- demonstrated the ability to publish papers in excellent conferences and/or journals in the field of data mining or artificial intelligence,
- have an interest in the development of data mining algorithms and its applications,
- can come from any country (but if the applicant is Chinese, s/he should hold a Ph.D. from a 211 or 985 university, or from a university abroad).
- it is expected that the candidate has obtained his Ph.D. within the last 3 years, and is less than 36 years old, except for exceptional candidates (this is the rule of the HR department)
The successful applicant will:
- work on a data mining project that could be related to sequences, time series and spatial data, or some other topics related to data mining with both a theoretical part and an applied part related to industrial design (the exact topic will be open for discussion to take advantage of the applicant’s strengths),
- join an excellent research team, led by Prof. Philippe Fournier-Viger, the founder of the popular SPMF data mining library, and have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers from other fields,
- will have the opportunity to work in a laboratory equipped with state of the art equipment (e.g. very expensive workstations, a cluster of severs to carry big data research, GPU servers, virtual reality equipment, body sensors, and much more).
- will be hired for 2 years, at a salary of 171,600 RMB / year ( 51,600 RMB from the university + 120,000 RMB from the city of Shenzhen) . Note that there the post-doctoral researcher will pay no tax on the salary, and that an apartment can be rent at a very low price through the university (around 1500 RMB / month, which saves a lot of money).
- work in one of the top 50 universities in the field of computer science in the world, and one of the top 10 universities in China.
- work in Shenzhen, one of the fastest-growing city in the south of China, with low pollution, warm weather all year, and close to Hong Kong.
If you are interested by this position, please apply as soon as possible by sending your detailed CV (including a list of publications and references), and a cover letter to Prof. Philippe Fournier-Viger: firstname.lastname@example.org It is possible to apply for year 2018 or 2019.
