The Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna is the largest Austrian institution of mathematical research and tertiary education in the mathematical sciences. It consists of active research groups in a wide range of fields, starting from logical foundations, bridging all classical core subjects, and up to concrete applications in industry. As part of the Faculty, the Institute of Mathematics represents the entire discipline of mathematics in research and teaching, without making an arbitrary separation into pure and applied fields.

The advertised senior scientist position is associated with the chair for Mathematical Foundations of Deep Learning of Univ.-Prof. Dr. Philipp Grohs (email: philipp.grohs@univie.ac.at). Initially 4 years with the option to an unlimited duration.

We are looking for a highly qualified researcher with special interests in the main area of Mathematical Foundations of Deep Learning. The job holder's responsibilities include independent research and holding classes due to extent regulations of wage agreement and the usual administrative duties. We request a Habilitation or the willingness to work towards one. Furthermore the holder of the position will be responsible for the administration of the IT infrastructure of the research group.
