Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH - Vollzeitbeschäftigung
Start ab sofort - Online seit dem 14.11.2019
As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields of information, energy,bioeconomy. It focuses on varied tasks in the area of research managementutilizes large, often unique, scientific infrastructure. Comework with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topicsdisciplines at one of Europe's largest research centres.
The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is a research institute that operates one of the most powerful supercomputer infrastructures for scientificengineering applications in Europe, situated within Research Center Jülich (FZJ), member of Helmholtz Association.
To advance large-scale machine / deep learning (ML/DL) research with High Performance Computing (HPC), JSC sets up a High Level Support Team (HLST). Focused on software developmentresearch support for ML/DL, HLST will become part of the recently launched Helmholtz Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit (HAICU). HAICU is a Helmholtz-wide platform consisting of 6 Helmholtz Research Centers across Germany, FZJ being among them. HAICU aims to reach an international leadership position in basicapplied AI research by combining advanced methodsML/DL with Helmholtz’ unique scientific questionsdata sets - bringing together scientistsall Helmholtz centers, scientific partner institutionsindustrial partnersfostering open, transdisciplinary research, with strong dedication to principles of open scienceopen source. At JSC, HLST will work on setting up HAICU close together with the research-oriented Cross-Sectional Team Deep Learning (CST-DL). The research topics will include large-scale, self-supervised, multi-task continual learning for growing general AI models on modular supercomputers, physics-informed Deep Learning, transferfew-shot learning for cross-domain applications. Special focus will be on making use of highly scalabledistributed ML/DL methods on HPC facilities hosted at JSC.
