Are you interested in joining the AIMat group to work on a postdoc project related to the research areas of our group:


- Graph neural networks for property prediction of materials and molecules (deep graph representation learning models on very large datasets)
- Generative models for inverse design (graph generation, e.g. based on diffusion)
- Explainable methods for extraction of scientific knowledge from data, specifically graph datasets
- Large language models for the extraction of (structured) information from scientific literature


Then don't hesitate to contact to discuss a possible topic as well as funding options through an application for a scholarship.


- Humboldt research fellowship (next meeting of the Selection Committee: November 2024)
- Marie Skłodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (next application deadline: 11.09.2024)
- DAAD scholarship (next application deadline: 11.09.2024)


What we offer

- Young and ambitious research group with a very collaborative and international team of PhD students and Postdocs
- Exciting research topics, state-of-the-art machine learning methods, applied to highly relevant challenges in chemistry and materials science
-  National and international collaborations in machine learning, materials science and chemistry
- Support through the Karlsruhe House of Young Scientists (KHYS), including workshops and financial support for stays abroad
