Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V. - PostDoc (f/m/d) Machine learning for animal movement analysis
Through cutting-edge research in the fields of ENERGY, HEALTH and MATTER, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) solves some of the pressing societal and industrial challenges of our time. Join our 1.400 employees from more than 50 nations at one of our six research sites and help us moving research to the next level!
The Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) is a German-Polish research center for data-intensive digital systems research. CASUS was founded in 2019 in Görlitz and conducts digital interdisciplinary systems research in various fields such as earth systems research, systems biology and materials research.
As part of the Institute, the Department of Earth System Science invites applications as PostDoc (f/m/d) Machine learning for animal movement analysis.
The position will be available from 1 October 2022. The employment contract is limited to two years.
Job Background and Scope:
The successful candidate (f/m/d) will be part of an internationally renowned team that focuses on developing analytical method and software for animal movement data. The candidate’s work will broaden the focus of the group’s efforts to encompass the application of ML techniques to problems including, but not limited to, the classification of individuals as range resident (or not), the identification of behavioral states in tracking time series, and the integration of multiple data streams (e.g., GPS location data and accelerometer data). This research will leverage a large, multi-species tracking dataset for both training and cross-validating the ML algorithms.
