Research Positons

We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in machine learning for healthcare in the Information Fusion Lab at UMass Amherst. Our project, 4Thought, aims to address one of the biggest needs in Alzheimer's disease research, an ability for the early diagnosis of this disease.   To this end, we are developing novel diagnostic technology on brain structural MRIs, cognitive test scores and biomarkers. The postdoctoral researcher will be part of a team developing cutting-edge techniques for Alzheimer's Disease forecasting, using hybrid deep learning methodology that leverages complex, multimodal data and domain knowledge.

The College of Information and Computer Sciences (CICS) is searching for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct innovative and exciting research in the areas of visualization, urban design, and civic data analysis with Professor Narges Mahyar.

The UMass Amherst TRIPODS Institute for Theoretical Foundations of Data Science invites applications for postdoctoral fellowship positions in data science with a start date of January 1, 2020 or later. Specifically, we seek candidates who work in areas broadly related to the UMass Amherst TRIPODS themes, namely: statistical performance and data acquisition in interactive data collection; algorithms and computational models for processing large amounts of data; model robustness, approximate inference and uncertainty quantification. The Principal Investigators are Arya Mazumdar, Andrew McGregor, and Barna Saha in Computer Science and Patrick Flaherty and Markos Katsoulakis in Mathematics & Statistics.
