Post-doctoral research fellow to contribute to the implementation of the ERC StG SCALER

The applicant will work on a variety of work packages of the SCALER project, and specifically work on exploring the following directions:
- The development of new generalization guarantees based on the "online-to-PAC conversion" technique recently developed by Lugosi & Neu (2023).
- The extension of the above techniques to provide uncertainty quantification tools for potentially nonlinear models (such as deep neural networks).
- Apply the above results to address challenging exploration-exploitation dilemmas in large-scale sequential decision making.
- Extend previously existing "information-theoretic" analysis techniques for sequential decision making using convex analytic techniques, or the online-to-PAC machinery mentioned above.

The successful applicant needs to demonstrate prior experience in relevant areas of machine learning theory. Familiarity with PAC-Bayesian generalization bounds, online learning, information theory, and reinforcement learning theory (including bandit theory) is a big advantage. The applicant needs to hold a PhD in computer science, mathematics, statistics, or related areas, and have a demonstrated track record of publishing at top venues like NeurIPS, ICML, COLT, ALT, or AISTATS.

Deadline: Oct 04, 2023
