Openings for Research Fellows and Research Engineers

At the School of Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU), we are currently inviting applications for Research Fellows (Postdocs), as well as Research Engineers.

These positions are with the Web Mining Group led by Dr. Hady W. Lauw. The group's activities revolve around data mining and machine learning for the Web and social media.

These new positions will be part of a research project on mining user preferences from big data, funded by an NRF Fellowship awarded by Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF).

A competitive Research Fellow candidate has a PhD degree with a promising academic record. Topics considered particularly relevant include: probabilistic graphical modeling, deep learning, topic modeling, recommender systems, dimensionality reduction, similarity search, text mining, and information extraction.  A strong background in other data mining and machine learning topics will also be considered.

A competitive Research Engineer candidate has a Bachelor's and/or Master's degree in Computer Science or a closely-related discipline with high academic standing.  He or she is competent in programming and data management, with knowledge of data mining and machine learning concepts.  Past experience, as well as future interest, in research is a plus.
