Senior Research Scientist at NEC Labs Europe

Country : Germany

Website :


NEC Labs Europe's Data Analytics group is looking for research scientists to develop and implement machine learning algorithms with real-world impact. We are an international team of researchers with a track record of producing top research (published at ICML, NIPS, KDD, SIGCOMM, WWW, UAI) and innovative data-driven products in and outside of NEC.
The current focus of the group is on neural network based learning. We work on novel methods for structured data (sequences, graphs, knowledge graphs) including unsupervised and semi-supervised learning as well as deep learning for multi-modal data.
We work closely with NEC’s business units on internal research projects and participate in European R&D projects with industrial and academic partners. In addition, we have collaborations with the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg.
You will write papers and patents to document your accomplishments and present your work at international conferences. English is the working language in the lab. If you are excited about machine learning and ways to bring ML technologies to impact products and services, you should apply.
More information about our research group and a list of recent publications is available at
** PhD degree in computer science or a related field
** A publication record at ML/AI conferences (e.g., ICML, KDD, WWW, WSDM, UAI, NIPS, etc.).
** Programming proficiency in languages such as Python, C/C++, and Java
** Familiarity with deep learning frameworks and GPUs is a plus (we maintain our own GPU cluster)
