The Data Science Learning Division at Argonne National Laboratory seeks a predoctoral appointee to conduct research in artificial intelligence techniques to analyze large-scale imaging datasets for discovering underlying graph structures. The focus of this project is to use the reconstructed graphs to improve biological or machine learning models. An example of this is the inference of neuron connection maps for driving spiking neural networks that model organism behavior. The project will survey graph discovery methods, biology-inspired learning algorithms, and co-design of advanced AI systems. Additionally, we will develop techniques that provide robust interpretation to the results extracted from such approaches.

  • Knowledge of machine learning theories and/or statistics required
  • Skilled in developing deep learning applications (e.g., imaging, biomedical data)
  • Familiar with recurrent neural networks, reinforcement learning, or meta-learning
  • Knowledge of neuroscience is a plus, but not required
  • Experience with HPC, accelerators, brain-inspired platforms is a plus, but not required
  • Good communications skills, both verbal and written
  • Considerable collaborative skills
  • Ability to model Argonne’s Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork.

Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists, engineers, and business professionals work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
