Interdisciplinary Artificial Intelligence Research Institute
Interdisciplinary Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IAIRI) is set up jointly by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in 2021, with the aim to encourage and promote interdisciplinary research utilizing AI technology. The Institute is supported by Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science and Faculty of Medicine. The Institute is now seeking dedicated and creative scholars to help build up its newly established Institute through active research and strong commitment to teaching and mentoring of students.

The Institute invites applications from outstanding academics in emerging fields with potential for scientific and scholarly breakthroughs above and beyond its existing recruitment to join CUHK at the level of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor. Multiple posts in the general area of artificial intelligence and its applications, including machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, and AI applications in various domains are available. Outstanding candidates from diverse disciplines in computing, distributed systems, statistics, optimization, applied mathematics, medicine and other related areas are also welcome. Successful candidates will be jointly appointed by the Institute and the Faculties to best align with the candidate’s work.

This is a broad search open to all areas of data science including but not limited to databases and systems, fundamental machine learning, interface between optimization and machine learning, natural language processing, visions and robotics, Bayesian learning, causal inference, and decision making under uncertainty. Research collaboration across borders are highly encouraged and abundant research resources will be matched to facilitate the related research.

Applicants are encouraged to apply by July 31, 2021 to ensure earlier consideration, but the search will continue until posts are filled.
