Racah Institute of Physics, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Position ID:HUJ-Racah Institute of Physics-POSTDOC [#10797]
Position Title: Postdoctoral research assistant
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Jerusalem, Yerushalayim, Israel [map]
Subject Areas: Physics / Machine Learning, Condensed Matter Physics, Statistical Mechanics
Appl Deadline: (posted 2018/01/30, listed until 2018/07/30)
Position Description:    

The Racah Institute of Physics is looking for a highly skilled postdoctoral researcher to join the newly established research group led by Dr. Zohar Ringel. Our research focuses on the theory of deep learning, applications of machine learning approaches to condensed matter physics, complexity aspects of Quantum Monte Carlo Simulations, and topological phases of matter. The position offered focuses on the theory of deep learning and aims at exploring thermodynamical descriptions of deep learning and support them using analytically tractable toy models and numerical simulations. Experience in either strongly correlated phases, spin-glasses, statistical mechanics, or any similar subfield involving many-body physics is required. In addition the applicant should have reasonable programming and data analysis skills.

The appointee will perform theoretical physics research, supplemented by computational work. We benefit from a very stimulating environment here at Hebrew University which includes its world renowned school of computer science and centre for brain sciences (https://elsc.huji.ac.il/). Dr. Ringel is also part of the Center for Deep Learning which is a research cluster that funds and encourages collaborations between physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, and biologists. This would place the appointee at the cutting-edge of current research on deep learning. The postdoctoral fellowship position offers a comfortable salary and is for two plus one years. Jerusalem is a fascinating and diverse city which is full of charm and history. Within an hour's drive one can visit the dead-sea, the desert, and the Mediterranean beach. The appointee can also choose to live in Tel-Aviv which is an hour's commute from the department.
