Competition for a post-doc position

Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CAMK PAN) announces a competition for a post-doc position.

We are looking for a candidate with practical experience in the data analysis, classification and data modeling in the field of machine learning, knowledge of statistical methods used in astronomy and advanced programming skills.

The winner of the competition will conduct research within the Sonata-bis project entitled ''Transient sources of gravitational waves associated with stars neutrons: models and data analysis'' in cooperation with dr. Michal Bejger. 

Detailed research tasks include design and implementation of methods for analyzing weak gravitational-wave signals using the machine learning methods (in particular methods of deep learning neural networks), as well as the simulations and characterization of interferometric data from gravitational-wave detectors.

We seek candidates holding the PhD title in the field of physics or astronomy (or a related field), or PhD students at the last stages of their doctoral thesis. The contract should start not later than May 1, 2018 (the candidate should be in possession of the PhD title at this time).  An employment contract on an adjunct's position is maximally up to three years.
