  • enthusiasm to learn new things and work in a multidisciplinary and international research environment;
  • excellent written and oral communication skills in English;
  • at least minimal experience in using a machine learning framework such as PyTorch, TensorFlow or Keras, or some experience in object-oriented programming of advanced numerical or algebraic algorithms;

This position represents an ideal and privileged opportunity for both recently graduated students and more experienced computer scientists and engineers to join a vibrant, international working environment, and to develop their skills in machine learning and deep learning. The working language is English.

The contract may start as soon as possible, according to the availability of the candidate, and will be offered on a fixed period until either December or September 2020. The activity may continue later within startups that will commercialize the technologies developed within the institute. RIST offers competitive salaries and top-level working conditions.
