Ph.D. position open

I am looking to hire an outstanding Ph.D. student. You will do 50 percent theoretical and 50 percent applied research in deep learning and statistical signal processing.

If you are interested, you have strong programming and strong math skills, please send me an email with a short CV and a short motivation letter. Please use the following subject line: 'phd candidate: First name Last name’. If I think this might be a good match, I will reply to arrange the time when we can talk. I will not be able to reply to every inquiry.

If you are currently a student at FAU, consider doing a project with me, helping to organize the lab course Machine Learning in Signal Processing, or helping to prepare the materials for Machine Learning in Signal Processing lecture. Working together on a project is the best way to assess whether it is a mutually good match or not.
