I am looking for highly motivated applicants with an strong degree (Master of Science) in statistics, data science, computer science, bioinformatics, or a similar program to join me in the Causality group at the Research Center for Trustworthy Data Science and Security at TU Dortmund. There are multiple open positions on topics including:

  • causal discovery, OOD generalization/robustness (pointers to some prior work: 1, 2, 3),
  • causal representation learning, self-supervised and multimodal learning (4, 5),
  • information theory and Bayesian deep learning (6, 7, 8, 9).

In addition, there might be some opportunities for interdisciplinary projects at the intersection of causality and biomedical applications in the future.

Details about the position:

All PhD positions are full-time (part-time possible) with payment according to the public service's agreement: TV-L E13. The positions will be filled as soon as possible, with the earliest starting date being the 1st of June.
