We are seeking an exceptional and motivated candidate that can foster the interaction between members of the High Cosmology, Astrophysics and Particle Physics groups.</span></p><p><span style="color:#000000;font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;font-size:14.944000244140625px;background-color:#ffffff;">• </span><span style="font-weight:700;color:#000000;font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;font-size:14.944000244140625px;">Data Science: </span><span style="color:#000000;font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;font-size:14.944000244140625px;background-color:#ffffff;">Postdoctoral or science engineering contract to work on Data Science techniques applied to Big Data in Open Science. </span><span style="color:#000000;font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;font-size:14.944000244140625px;background-color:#ffffff;">Contact persons: Lara Lloret, <span class="ms-rteForeColor-9">lloret@ifca.unican.es</span>; Fernando Aguilar, <span class="ms-rteForeColor-9">aguilarf@ifca.unican</span></span><br></p><p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteForeColor-9" style="font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;background-color:#ffffff;">Our group is looking for a postdoctoral or technical candidate to work on the application of novel Data Science techniques, including Machine Learning/Deep Learning, to a wide variety of problems ranging from biodiversity, satellite imaging, physics or medical diagnosis through images, among others. Our group is currently involved in two European projects, Deep-Hybrid-DataCloud (DEEP) and eXtreme-DataCloud (XDC), both with Pilot Cases on several research domains as the ones described above. The DEEP project provides, under the label DEEP as a Service, a set of building blocks enabling the easy development of applications requiring cutting-edge techniques. The applications are deployed in the project testbed integrating Cloud Computing-based solutions and offered to the research communities linked to the project through pilot applications, and integrated under the European Open Science Cloud framework. On the other side, the XDC project aims at developing scalable technologies for federating storage resources and managing data in highly distributed computing environments, as required by the most demanding, data-intensive research experiments in Europe and worldwide. The candidate will be required to get involved in the main activities of these two projects covering all the different aspects related to the application of Data Science and Data Management techniques.  In addition, the candidate will be encouraged to propose, plan and carryout his/her own related research. </span></p><div><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteForeColor-9" style="font-family:"trebuchet ms", palatino, "palatino linotype", times, "times new roman", serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><br></span></div><p><br></p>2019-04-07T22:00:00Z2019-09-29T22:00:00Z
Beca para trabajar en Materia Oscurahttps://ifca.unican.es/en-us/Lists/JobVacancies/DispForm.aspx?ID=6Beca para trabajar en Materia Oscura<p>​El Institutod e Fisica de Cantabria (IFCA) oferta una beca para la realización de una tesis doctoral sobre el estudio de la materia oscura. El doctorando participara en el proyecto DAMIC contribuyendo a la parte técnica de dicho experimento. En particular al desarrollo de herramientas para el analisis de las señales de background . Asi mismo, el doctorando participará en la interpretación de los resultados y la combinación con datos astrofísiocs, inclutyendo el efecto lente gravitatoria para acotar propiedades de la materia oscura.
