High-Dimensional Statistical Modeling Unit (RIKEN AIP)

We are focusing on developing machine learning algorithm for science including feature selection, topological data analysis, and transfer learning. In particular, we are interested in nonlinear algorithms for high-dimensional data. Ultimately, we want to build a machine learning framework to automatically find an important information from data.


Postdoctoral fellows/Research Scientist
Several positions for machine learning and its application to biology and material informatics, etc. We look for a couple of machine learning researchers developing machine learning algorithms and a couple of researchers in application domain.

Paid intern positions are available for motivated students. Please feel free to send me your resume!

Ph.D. student
We accept graduate students from Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University.
