The Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is 
Sweden’s largest individual research program ever; a major national 
initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and 
faculty recruitment (see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__wasp-2Dsweden.org&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=lTzIT4ymjHghH8LbDCu9xPpwR_B13lojYT-Wu_JWOMw&s=Ul4EUW2nTqUDmJHs1E3xsCVhY4SUKzTjlQgOoGU_TX8&e= ). WASP comprises five 
Swedish full partner universities and a substantial part of Swedish 
industry and commerce. WASP aims to strengthen Linköping University 
specifically in the field of machine learning within the AI focus-area 
of WASP.
We seek competence in Optimization for Machine Learning. The major task 
for this position is fundamental research in the area of mathematical 
optimization theory and novel techniques for machine learning. Examples 
of research topics are: sparse optimization, saddle point search, 
multi-object learning, and stochastic quasi-Newton methods. Although the 
expertise should primarily be in optimization, the applicant should 
ideally also have experience in machine learning.
The financing of the position, established through WASP (Wallenberg AI, 
Autonomous Systems and Software Program, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__wasp-2Dsweden.org&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=lTzIT4ymjHghH8LbDCu9xPpwR_B13lojYT-Wu_JWOMw&s=Ul4EUW2nTqUDmJHs1E3xsCVhY4SUKzTjlQgOoGU_TX8&e= ), 
includes support for the position holder’s own salary during 4–5 years 
and a research group with two postdocs (2 years each) and one PhD 
student (4 years).
If you are looking for work at an excellent young university, living in 
urban or rural environments with commuting distance of 15 min, and want 
to possibly exploit your research results commercially (YOU will 
completely OWN your IPR): Apply before December 9!


Best regards
