The Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) is searching for a researcher in the area of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. This position focuses on the development of applied research and technology transfer, within data science projects funded by public instruments or in partnership with private partners. In addition, the selected candidate is expected to contribute to the Center with his/her own line of research, with a strong focus on applied and transferable research, which can be jointly developed with the multidisciplinary teams of the Center and the Data and AI Initiative of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at U. of Chile. CMM is one of the leading centers for research in mathematics and its applications in Latin America. It is devoted to theoretical and applied research and technology transfer, seeking to contribute to the development of mathematics and its application to the solution of problems from other sciences, industry and the public sector. CMM is partly funded by ANID (the Chilean Agency for Research and Development), is an International Research Laboratory of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), and has an extensive national and international network of collaborators. The work of the center is organized into six areas of fundamental research in mathematics, and six strategic areas of applied research and technology transfer (Climate and Biodiversity, Data Science, Digital Health, Digital Mining, Resource Management, and Education).

This position will be part of the Data Science area of the Center (CMM-Data), which aims to develop applied research and transfer projects related to this subject. The group has carried out technology transfer projects in sectors such as retail, mining, health, biodiversity/climate change, marketing analytics and the public sector, working in challenges related to image, audio and natural language processing, time series estimation, pattern recognition, and resource allocation. The methodologies employed by CMM-Data to address these challenges have been inspired by different branches of mathematics, statistics and computer science, including rule-based systems, neural networks, kernel methods and Bayesian inference, among others. The group also develops continuing education programs, through tailored courses for entities in the public and private sector, and through the development of a Diploma in Data, soon to be launched.

It is expected that, in the context of the projects in which the researcher will take part, he/she will lead, or actively participate, in research production leading to publications and in the dissemination of results to the academic community. In addition, the position includes teaching in data science in the area of continuing education (particularly in the diploma program currently under development) and the possibility of teaching at the graduate level.
