UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 

Position Summary

The UCD School of Computer Science is seeking to recruit a post-doctoral researcher with experience in data science, machine learning, statistical modelling, bioinformatics and related skills. This is a temporary, 2-year Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 post funded by the Science Foundation Ireland VistaMilk Research Centre (www.vistamilk.ie). VistaMilk is a unique collaboration between agri-food and information communications technology (ICT) research institutes and leading Irish/multinational food and ICT companies.

The successful candidate will work on models which apply machine learning and deep learning techniques to genomic selection in plants. Some of the data comes from NIR spectra and part of the work involves analysing and modelling this data.

The role will involve working collaboratively with other VistaMilk researchers.

This is an advanced research focused role, building on your prior experience as a post-doctoral fellow, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to develop new or advanced research skills and competences, on the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications and scholarly dissemination, the development of funding proposals, and the supervision and mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
