Tenure-track or Tenured Professor in Machine Learning
The Department of Computer Science (CS) at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland) invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured
professor in Machine Learning. Aalto is currently investing heavily in fundamental research in Artificial Intelligence and Finland
in applied AI; Aalto Department of Computer Science is the right place to pursue the next generation of machine learning and AI.
As of last year the CS department has already recruited two professors in machine learning and is now recruiting again two new
professors: one in machine learning and another call in AI is to open soon.
With nine professors and ca. 100 PhD students and postdocs working in machine learning, data mining, and probabilistic modelling,
Aalto Department of Computer Science is one of Europe’s leading centres of research in the field of the call. The current faculty’s
strength is apparent in e.g. the high volume of extremely competitive funding from the Academy of Finland (equivalent to National
Science Foundation) and the European Research Council (ERC), as well as the volume of high-achieving international students entering
the MSc and PhD programs in Machine Learning and Data Mining. Furthermore, as the foremost CS educator in Finland, the department
is home to the majority of the best Finnish students. In total, the department hosts 44 professors with diverse interests, forming
a fertile environment for cross-disciplinary collaborations. On a larger scale, as a technology-friendly, yet small country, Finland
offers ample opportunities for low-overhead collaboration with industrial and government partners as well.
