University of Antwerp – imec IDLab Research group
The Internet & Data Lab (IDLab) is an imec research group at the University of Antwerp and Ghent University. IDLab focuses its research on internet technologies and data science. IDLab is a joint research initiative between Ghent University and the University of Antwerp. Bringing together 300 internet experts, we develop technologies outperforming current solutions for communication subsystems, high speed and low power networking, distributed computing and multimedia processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence and web semantics. Within Antwerp, the overall IDLabare machine learning and wireless networking. IDLab has a unique used in numerous national and international collaborations.
IDLab collaborates with many universities and research centres worldwide and jointly develops(R&D centers from international companies, Flanders’ top innovating large companies and SME’s, as well as numerous ambitious startups).
For further development of the IDLab AI Applications program, we are looking for a Senior Researcher in Artificial Intelligence.
The AI Applications team aims to bring state-of-the-art machine learning methods to industry, bridging the gap between fundamental research and industrial applications. The team performs applied and fundamental research in areas such as data-driven modeling, deep learning and reinforcement learning to tackle real world challenges in industry. Our goal is to make AI safely and reliably applicable in an industrial context, where it should complement, enhance, or replace the state of the art in complex control scenarios where current techniques fail to deliver. The team applies its AI solutions in domains such as chemical engineering, autonomous shipping, beyond-5G wireless communication, mobility, and logistics, in collaboration with key industry partners in their respective domains.
We are looking for a senior researcher in to strengthen our research in applied artificial intelligence research. Together with a team of PhD students you will research how to bring state-of-the-art in AI-driven modelling and decision-making techniques to industry, tackling challenges such as sim-to-real, safety and robustness. You will work in close collaboration with industry, lead national and international research projects, drive consortium building and develop new research proposals.
