Job Description

We are offering a postdoc position on the development of statistical and tensor decomposition methods for representation learning of heterogeneous data with application to the analysis neuroimaging data.

Location: The CRAN laboratory (University of Lorraine) at Nancy, France, with visits to the MLSP laboratory (UMBC) in Maryland, USA. The candidate will work with Prof. Sebastian Miron, Dr. Ricardo Borsoi and Prof. David Brie in the CRAN laboratory, Nancy, and with Prof. Tülay Adali at the MLSP laboratory, UMBC, USA.

The starting date is flexible (the position is open until filled).

Description: The analysis of spatiotemporal data is a fundamental problem in multiple domains such as neuroscience, epidemiology, climate science and pollution monitoring. Developing representation learning methods for spatiotemporal data that can effectively and jointly handle data from diverse modalities poses a significant challenge. A particular difficulty is to devise flexible models which are directly interpretable, readily providing insight into the relationships that are learned from the data. The candidate will develop flexible representations learning and data analysis methods specifically designed to handle heterogeneous spatiotemporal data, effectively utilizing both algebraic (matrix and tensor decompositions) and statistical frameworks to generate results that are interpretable and backed by statistical guarantees. The developed methods will be applied to personalized medicine, with the aim to elucidate the interplay between neuroimaging data (e.g., fMRI) and cognitive/socioeconomic factors as well as their temporal evolution.

Candidate profile: Ph.D. degree in signal processing, machine learning or applied mathematics or related fields.

To apply: If interested, please send your application including an academic CV and a motivation letter to,,, and
