Algorithmic and Computational Problems in Artificial Intelligence and Network Science
I am always looking for highly motivated students interested in these topics to join my group as a graduate student or a post-doc fellow.
Undergraduate students interested in a directed study course, an honors thesis program, or a summer
research assistant position, are also encouraged to contact me to discuss the possibility.
A Postdoctoral Fellowship position is available immediately with Dr Yong Gao's group(https://people.ok.ubc.ca/yongg/)
at the University of British Columbia
Okanagan, Canada. The successful candidate will join a curiosity-driven
research project on the computational and algorithmic aspects of various problems arising in Artificial
Intelligence and Network Science. We are mainly interested in graph-theoretic characterizations,
probabilistic models, and algorithmic solutions for the identified problems, but applications of
our approaches to problems in others areas such as brain science, computational biology, social media,
and marketing research are also desirable. The initial appointment is for eight months and, depending
on the progress of the project and availability of funds, can be extended for up to 18 months.
Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in computer science (or relevant areas of mathematics) with a
strong background and experience in one or more of the following areas: (1) algorithm design;
(2) graph theory; or (3) network science/data mining/machine learning. Experience with software
development and algorithm implementation is also an asset.
