Job Description

Our MCS division is hiring a Postdoctoral Appointee to work on AI for Science.

AI is becoming pervasive in many science disciplines. As the understanding of how AI could contribute to science improves the size of the AI models and the volume of data needed to train these models increases. This growth of AI complexity brings several research opportunities concerning the scalability of AI training and the reduction of scientific data with AI.

The Postdoctoral Appointee will explore these two facets of AI for science. It will first explore asynchronous and multi-level techniques to improve AI data movements and reduce their overhead on execution. It will also explore AI based techniques to improve data reduction in particular for space efficient reduction of scientific data volumes.
