Postdoctoral Scholar - Electrical Engineering & Computer Science


  • The Henry Samueli School of Engineering - Electrical Engineering & Computer Science



Open August 6th, 2019 through Friday, Sep 6, 2019 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)

If you apply to this recruitment by September 6th, 2019, you will have until September 26th, 2019 to complete your application.



The UC Irvine Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering has an opening for an exceptional, motivated, outstanding, and organized applicant to work on cutting edge and multidisciplinary projects within collaborative teams of engineers and biologists at a salary range of $50,760.00 - $61,308.00 per year based on qualifications and experience.


End-to-end learning for cyber-physical systems (CPS) is attractive for realization of autonomous CPS, thanks to the appeal of control systems based on a pure data-driven architecture, however, the reliability of end-to-end deep neural networks is in question. To address these challenges, the postdoc researcher will work as part of a team/independently to conduct research to bridge the gap between formal methods and machine learning to provide principled approaches to enhance the reliability and verifiability of machine learning models when used to control autonomous CPS.


Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
• Plan and conduct research as needed.
• Pursue research goals with routine consultation.
• Set up major equipment as needed.
• Prepare professional weekly presentations, monthly reports, and final publications.
• Engage in collaborative work with peers to achieve research objectives.
• Assist with grant applications as needed.
• Coordinate activities with other members of the lab and with other collaborators.
• Help students as needed.


Qualifications: A Ph.D. in electrical engineering, computer engineering or computer science from an accredited university.


The initial appointment will be for a one-year period, with the possibility of an extension depending on performance and availability of funding. Note: Total duration of an individual’s postdoctoral service may not exceed five years, includes postdoctoral service at other institutions. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.
