The Position

Data 61 has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Research Scientist to help discover the next generation of machine learning algorithms. The machine learning team is currently building novel technologies for data integration and machine learning on large scale graphs.

We are seeking candidates with expertise in machine learning, graph algorithms, deep learning using highly structured data, active learning, online learning, manifold and spectral learning, large scale graph algorithms, distributed algorithms, or frequent graph pattern mining. The Senior Research Scientist will contribute and collaborate with the wider research community by publishing papers in top machine learning forums, as well as contributing to the technological direction of real world projects and finding solutions to some of the most challenging technical problems.

Specifically you will:

  • Incorporate novel approaches to scientific investigations by adapting and/or developing original concepts and ideas for new, existing and further research.
  • Performing research in one or more of the following areas: machine learning, graph algorithms, deep learning using highly structured data, online / active learning, manifold and spectral learning, large scale graph algorithms, distributed algorithms, frequent graph pattern mining.
  • Produce high quality scientific and/or engineering papers suitable for publication in top ranked venues (journals, conferences).
  • Collaborating with research and engineering teams to solve machine learning problems on graphs. Such as:
    • Supervised and unsupervised learning on large heterogeneous graphs and hypergraphs.
    • Solving pattern matching problems on dynamic graphs and hypergraphs.
    • Approximation algorithms for spectral graph learning on huge graphs
    • Real-time processing for updating graph-based models (e.g. manifolds)
  • Produce high quality scientific and/or engineering papers suitable for publication in top ranked venues (journals, conferences).

Location:     Eveleigh Sydney preferred, may consider Canberra ACT
Salary:         AU$131K - AU$145K plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure:        3 year specified term
Reference:  43886
