The DataScience@UB group has 2 openings for PhD positions.
The available positions are fully funded by the Catalan government under the Industrial Doctorates Plan.
The topics are:
- Large-scale machine learning for financial recommender systems
- Towards more interpretable machine learning models
The aim of the Industrial Doctorates Plan is to contribute to the competitiveness and internationalisation of Catalan industry, strengthen the tools for recruiting the talent generated in the country and place future PhD holders in the right place to carry out R&D&I projects in a company.
The essential element of the industrial doctorate process is the research project carried out at a company, where doctoral students will further develop their research training in collaboration with a university, and which is the object of a doctoral thesis. Therefore, the industrial doctorates act as a bridge for knowledge transfer and encourage closer ties between Catalan industry, universities and research centres.
The DataScience@UB research group with the “Wireless Capsule Endoscopy Diagnosis by AI” lead by Santi Seguí and Jordi Vitrià has been selected from the 5 finalists of the Mobile World Scholar Challenge 2019 in the topic Deep Learning.
DataScience@UB obtains the accreditation of TECNIO center, the developer of the most innovative technologies and facilitator that participates in the process of transfer of technology and knowledge to the company.
