The Deusto Institute of Technology (DeustoTech) (DEUSTOTECH) from the University of Deusto (Bilbao, Spain) is looking for a full-time post-doctoral researcher. The position is offered in the frame of a Horizon 2020 project. The contract will have a duration of 3 years under a regular employment contract with full social security coverage.


We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher with a solid knowledge background in Artificial Intelligence and more specifically in the areas of optimisation using metaheuristics and deep learning. The researcher will perform the following functions:

- Autonomous execution of international, national and regional projects in collaboration with the PI of the project.
- Modelling and solving optimisation problems using metaheuristic techniques to tackle problems related to the optimisation of transport networks.-
- Modelling and design of Deep Reinforcement Learning techniques for the optimisation of transport networks.
- Design and development of software modules for deploying optimisation models based on metaheuristics or Deep Reinforcement Learning models in production.
- Drafting of reports and writing of scientific papers.
- Support in interaction and communication with the rest of the project partners.
- Technical and scientific development of research projects and subsequent transfer in your area.
- Support in the materialisation of project proposals and offers from a scientific-technical point of view.
- Support in the administrative management of the projects in which he/she is involved.


*General requirements*

- University degree in computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, computer science, applied mathematics or similar.
- At least two years of experience as a PhD in areas related to optimisation using metaheuristics and/or application of deep learning techniques.
- Solid technical and research background, proven through publications in journals indexed in the Journal Citations Report.
- Solid programming experience in Java and/or Python.
- Experience in deep learning frameworks such as Tensorflow, Keras, Pytorch, etc.
- Experience in executing research projects related to the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques.
- Fluent in English (written and spoken).

It will be also considered as a plus:

- Experience in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques in the area of transport and, preferably, in the optimisation of transport networks.
- Previous experience in the use and application of optimisation techniques based on surrogate models.
- Previous experience in the use and application of Deep Reinforcement Learning techniques.
- Previous participation in H2020 and/or FP7 projects.
