This job is brought to you by Bizkaia Talent, a non-profit organization funded by the Department for Economic Development of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia. Its main objective is to attract highly skilled professionals to the Basque Country by connecting them with the opportunities within the leading innovation and technology companies and universities there.
The Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics (BCAM), together with IKERBASQUE invites applications for one Research Professor position in DATA SCIENCE. This Research Professor call offers a permanent contract position for experienced researchers.
The candidates are expected to be outstanding scholars with a proven record of achievements and demonstrated potential to lead and sustain an ambitious internationally recognized, externally funded research program that complement or extend the strengths of BCAM in data science. Candidates are required to have developed not only methodological research but also multidisciplinary applications in collaboration with research centers and companies. Applicants must have a PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics or closely related fields.
The Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) established in Bilbao is a world-class research centre on Applied Mathematics with a focus on interdisciplinary research in the frontiers of mathematics, attraction and training of talented scientists, development of new numerical and simulation methods, interaction with industry, and promotion of scientific and technological advances worldwide.
Aiming to strengthen the Basque Science and Technology System, BCAM was created in September 2008 by the Basque Government through Ikerbasque, the Basque Foundation for Science. BCAM obtained the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence award in 2013, by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO).
Located in the Basque Country, it benefits from a long industrial tradition, and it is linked with the French Atlantic corridor, a region of excellence in Applied Mathematics. This context contributes to the task of building an excellence research centre. BCAM counts with around 70 researchers from over 20 different countries with experience in some of the most prestigious research centres on their area, organized in 5 research areas. There are excellent administrative and technical support staff and research personnel (PhD and postdoctoral students). The senior positions are permanent appointments.
BCAM is a young research centre that is facing its consolidation phase. In this sense, the scientific strategy of the Centre is based on three Scientific Platforms that have been set up in order to establish an interdisciplinary system capable of facing the challenges of Mathematical Science in a broad manner by bringing together Mathematics, Engineering and Sciences:
- Core in Applied Mathematics: PDE, Numerical Analysis, Fourier Analysis, Algebraic Geometry, Probability and Statistics.
- Computational Mathematics: Modeling and computer simulations using numerical, stochastic and Monte Carlo methods.
- Applications of Mathematics to Industry, Social Sciences and Health Sciences.
