Postdoctoral Researcher in Pattern Recognition
100%, 12 Months

The pattern recognition group (PRG) at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Bern researches novel and groundbreaking algorithms in pattern recognition and machine learning.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to join our group from February 1, 2023 (or earlier) to support our research in structural pattern recognition. The focus of the present project is twofold. First, we research encodings of matching information in a novel data structure to formalize the stable cores of specific classes, and second, we research novel hierarchical graph representations in conjunction with linear time graph embedding.

Your responsibilities will include the following:
  • Support two students doing their PhD in the area of graph based pattern recognition.
  • Definition and execution of your own research project that seamlessly integrates with the current research project of the two PhDs (in the area of graph based pattern recognition)
  • Writing of scientific publications
We expect a PhD degree in the field of pattern recognition or machine learning with a strong focus on structural data. In the best case you have already worked with graphs during your PhD study.
We offer
We offer a position as a postdoctoral researcher under the conditions of the SNSF ( You will work in a well equipped lab together with a well organized and highly motivated team.
