How will you contribute?

Within the Trustworthy AI group, we are looking for a post-doctoral researcher with strong AI benchmarking expertise for a European Defence Funds project. If you are passioned about AI, research with a strong impact, and have an interest for working alongside world-class defence actors, let us know of your profile.

The ideal candidate would cover a mix of the following points


Definition of AI Metrics and Experimentation

·       Semantic segmentation metrics: class- / task-specific and/or instance-level metrics, pixel-level, panoptic, metrics for resilience, and use-cases that target real-time and long-term performance evaluation, model complexity, …

·       Hardware-specific AI metrics: inference speed, memory usage, power consumption, single/double-precision, performance on GPUs, TPUs, edge, …


Impact of Data on Performance

·       Impact of data split and augmentation on model performance, overfitting, sensitivity to class imbalance, transfer-learning and fine-tuning performance

·       Data augmentation for testing model resilience & re-assessment: occlusion, jittering, regularization techniques, geometric and/or photometric transformations, inpainting, …

·       GAN-driven augmentation / adversarial synthetic data generation for challenging a model’s performance, domain adaptation (e.g., image-to-image translation, style transfer augmentation)

·       Temporal and spatial split: concept drift, train vs inference, class-aware split (low-representativeness class benchmarking, long-tail distribution), out-of-distribution generalization


Semantic Segmentation Explainability Benchmarking

Hyper-model / model sampling, latent model space metric learning

Reproducibility and metrics


Tooling; standardized benchmark protocol(s) and reporting

·       Experience with tooling for AI model versioning, experiment tracking, MLOps & orchestration, containerization, model serving, REST APIs

·       Reporting and support for post-benchmarking drill-down on results


We offer a highly dynamic environment as part of a team that is active across different technology-transfer areas (AI benchmarking, explainability, embedded/edge AI, …). LIST also offers a wide range of opportunities for training, as well as engaging with world-class researchers and labs.


Is Your profile described below? Are you our future colleague? Apply now!


The scope of the work is on AI benchmarking, while observing applications for semantic segmentation and anomaly detection.

The successful candidate will be responsible with conducting state-of-the-art research in the area of AI benchmarking for semantic segmentation / AI models, publishing in high-end journals and venues, operational work for the implementing metrics, benchmarking pipelines, etc., all in a solution-focused environment.


The successful candidate is expected to:

·       Have a strong ML/AI background, hold a PhD in computer science, mathematics or similar, and be able to showcase a track record in AI benchmarking research.

·       Hands-on experience and a track record of projects carried using frameworks like Pytorch and/or Tensorflow is an absolute must.

·       Any experience in working with e.g. Kubeflow, Kubernetes / associated tooling, and benchmarking frameworks like MLPerf / others, is a plus while not a strong requirement.


Operational knowledge and fluency in English is mandatory; French can be a plus while not required nor mandatory.

Any previous experience in a defense-oriented context is a plus while not mandatory; similarly, having been granted an EU Personal Security Clearance in the past can be a strong advantage.
