Open Position: permanent Assistant Professor, tenure track, in Data Science at EURECOM (France)

EURECOM hosts a well-established academic research group in the field of Data Science in Europe, as demonstrated, for example, by the recent appointment of an AXA Research Fund Chair in Computational Statistics, and by awards such as the “H2020 European Stars Prize” for our research in Large-scale Distributed Systems and Big Data.

The activity of the professors in the department cover key areas, such
as: computational statistics, theory and practice of machine learning and deep learning, adversarial learning and data economics, parallel and distributed algorithms and systems, natural language processing and information extraction, knowledge base development and semantic web technologies. Additional information on the Data Science Department is available at

The new faculty is expected to join forces with the department by integrating, complementing and extending existing research activities with original approaches in one or several of the following areas:

* Probabilistic Machine Learning and Computational Statistics
* Probabilistic Reasoning and Reinforcement Learning
* Statistical Learning Theory

The new faculty is expected to carry out fundamental research and to develop new graduate courses in the aforementioned domains.

While actively leading research with her/his team, the new faculty is also expected to enhance the resources of the department by attracting additional funding. Besides excellence in academic research, she/he must tackle real life machine learning problems raised by industrial applications, for example provided by EURECOM industrial partners.

NOTE: the working language at EURECOM is English, courses are delivered in English, and all communications with the administration are in English and French.


Candidates must have a Ph.D. in computer science, statistics, engineering, mathematics or related disciplines, and have postdoctoral research experience in one or several of the above areas, as well as a strong publication record (e.g., NIPS, ICML, AISTATS, UAI, JMLR, IEEE-TPAMI).


Applications should include:

* a motivation letter
* a CV including a publication list emphasizing the three most important publications
* a statement of proposed research and teaching activities
* the names and addresses of four references

Applications should be submitted by e-mail to recruitment-mdc-ds [at] eurecom [dot] fr with the reference: DS_PM_PROF_ML_102018
