are invited to fill one postdoctoral fellowship on “Machine
Learning Glasses”, starting in 2021. The fellowship is for two
years and is funded by the Simons collaboration "Cracking The
will be supervised by Ludovic Berthier (Montpellier, France and
Cambridge, UK) and Giulio Biroli (ENS Paris, France), and will develop
collaborations with Victor Bapst (DeepMind Google, London, UK).
The goal of the
postdoc project is to combine two recent breakthroughs in
simulations of supercooled liquids and glasses (the swap Monte
Carlo algorithm and graph neural network developed at DeepMind
and GoogleBrain) to elucidate the physical properties of these
systems at unprecedentedly low-temperatures that are out of
reach of conventional numerical approaches.
We are seeking
candidates with good knowledge of statistical mechanics,
computer simulations of liquids, and/or machine learning
We would be
grateful if you would bring this announcement to the attention of strong,
creative individuals with a background in statistical physics
and/or machine learning and encourage them to apply.
for applications is January 15, 2021.
