Multiple positions for Aalto’s students (RAs, diploma thesis)

“>The User Interfaces group at Aalto University, part of the Interactive AI research programme at Finnish Center for AI (FCAI), is looking for talented Master’s students at Aalto University. Current topics include:

1. Computational design

2. Computational modeling of cognition

3. Input sensing systems

4. Adaptive user interfaces.

Applicants should have completed Bachelor studies in computer science, electrical engineering, or a related field and show a very good or outstanding academic record. We further expect experience in one or several of the following areas:

1. Machine learning, especially one of the following: deep learning, reinforcement learning, or probabilistic ML;

2. Computational modeling of human performance, behavior, or cognition;

3. Sensing systems, especially gesture recognition;

4. Experimental research with human subjects;

5. Optimization, especially integer programming.

Willingness to quickly learn ML tools for Python (e.g., PyTorch, Stan, pandas, scipy, numpy, GPyOpt, docker) will be expected.

We are a highly ambitious international research group with some of the world’s leading researchers in this area. All positions are parts of collaborative projects aiming at highest quality scientific publications in the area of HCI. Positions are for 3-6 months at 50% (research assistant) and 6-8 months in duration (part-time or full-time; Master’s thesis positions). Contract terms, conditions, and start dates are negotiable. Note: Some of these positions are “EIT-compatible”, i.e. can be organized to be done in close collaboration with a company. Please indicate in your email if this is required.

Apply now! For full consideration, please apply in Aalto University recruiting system: by November 30, 2020. However, late applications will be handled as long as there are open positions. In your application package, please include 1) academic CV, 2) transcripts with grades from on-going and completed degrees, 3) brief letter of motivation, and 4) link to portfolio / git page if any.
