Position Description:    

*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at Lehigh University as part of its new Nano/Human Interfaces (NHI) Initiative.  Inspired by the National Science Foundation’s “big ideas” for research in the coming decade, Lehigh has established a presidential-level initiative to work at the human-technology frontier, harnessing big data in support of 21st Century Science and Engineering (  The Lehigh NHI Initiative aims to develop new approaches to the science of nanoscale materials interfaces by exploring and exploiting data analytics, machine learning, and human-machine interfaces.  We specifically target problems of materials interfaces that are inherently data intensive and require fundamentally new methods for visualizing and interpreting vast amount of data.  Our larger goal is to explore data-based methods that will lead the next revolution in the conduct of science, namely drawing inferences from large datasets whether experimentally or computationally generated.

We seek outstanding candidates in Data Science and Human/Computer Interactions to join a highly-collaborative team that will work to advance this exciting initiative.  This researcher will apply techniques in Machine Learning/Data Science, as well as in the analysis of imaging/geometric data, to develop novel techniques that prevent crucial observations in data sets from being overlooked or to enable non-computational researchers to explore interactively large, multidimensional multiresolution image data.  It is expected that applicants will have significant first author publications in data science, machine learning, image recognition, or a related topic.

Successful applicants will have a Ph.D. in a relevant field.  In addition, demonstrated proficiency in verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary team are required.  Compensation will be commensurate with experience.  Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, a brief statement of research accomplishments and contact information for at least three references.   Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
Questions concerning the position can be directed to Dr. Daniel Lopresti, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering and one of the leaders of the NHI Initiative:
