Postdoc IBM Research - Singapore

IBM Research Collaboratory in Singapore welcomes qualified post-doctoral candidates to apply for a fellowship starting in mid 2014. The successful candidate will be working on the 'next generation' of real-time analytics leveraging massive structured and unstructured datasets.

We welcome applications from candidates with background experience in optimization, optimal control, inverse problems, data assimilation, or machine learning, who feel that their experience will assist in the development of online operational analytics across multiple application areas from transportation to environmental sensing.

The position involves working with an international research team developing models and algorithms for real-time analytics. The position involves both innovative research and writing articles as well as significantly contributing to real-world client projects. There is a component of the position that involves programming and experience in java, C++/C# or python is preferred. However, the position is not primarily a programming position.

Salary and benefits are very competitive. The actual salary is determined by the IBM Research Human Resources department and cannot be provided ahead of an offer being made to the candidate. But, it can be expected that the salary and benefits will be very attractive, as compared to academic positions and to other positions in industry.

The position is for one year and can be renewed up to two more years based on mutual agreement. As such, this is a duration-limited position. Of the postdoctoral researchers at IBM Research, some are converted to permanent, non-duration-limited, positions during the course of their postdoctoral fellowship. However, no guarantee of such conversion can be made ahead of time.

We are actively recruiting for this position now and wish to fill at least one position soon, but regardless of your availability date, we encourage you to apply to the position, as it is possible for multiple positions to become available. Therefore, while there is a preference given to candidates who are available to start soon, all qualified and interested candidates should apply.

Real-time analytics is an exciting area of research within IBM and if this position appeals to you, please send a recent CV and please have 1 or 2 recommendation letters emailed directly to Dr. Sebastien Blandin, at
