The University of Texas Austin is one of the most renowned universities in the United States. It is also often included in the list of ‘Public Ivies’. Established in 1883, it is the oldest and largest university in the ‘University of Texas’ system. 


  • The NSF AI Institute for Foundations of Machine Learning (IFML), and the NSF TRIPODS program at the University of Texas seek highly qualified candidates (within five years of the award of their PhD) for a new UT ML Research Fellow Program. 
  • Appointments will begin in the Summer or Fall of 2023.
  • This multi-year program will host several postdoctoral researchers working on either:

(a) foundational problems in machine learning, optimization, and statistics and their relationship to algorithmic and methodological improvements for training and deploying ML models or

(b) problems that advance state of the art in central use-cases of large-scale ML: video, imaging, and navigation or some combination of the above topics or

(c) deep learning and protein biologics, especially protein engineering and applications of large-scale tools such as AlphaFold (we encourage candidates with PhDs in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, or related fields with a background in computation to apply).
