This research project will develop faster, more resource-effective and more scalable methods for machine learning and decision-making. The research includes algorithm development, mathematical analysis, implementation and performance evaluation. Working together with experts in computer architecture, we will investigate how machine learning algorithms and computer systems can be improved and radically re-designed for unprecedented efficiency and scalability.
The PhD position is financed by the national research program WASP (Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program, www. wasp-sweden- org) that offers a graduate school with many opportunities for cooperation and international research exchanges with partner universities. The project is a ”Twinning project” where a supplementary PhD position has been opened in the Professor Per Stenström's research group on Computer Architecture at Chalmers University. Together, we will take a holistic view of algorithm-architecture co-design and explore radically new computing architectures and algorithms, optimized for ML.

In order to succeed as a doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work. During the selection process, candidates will be assessed upon their ability to:
We are looking for candidates with strong knowledge in applied mathematics and computer science. Experience from algorithm development for machine learning is desired. You need a strong academic track record, be analytical and independent, and have a passion for research and problem solving.
After the qualification requirements, great emphasis will be placed on personal competency.
Target degree: Doctoral degreeInformation regarding admission and employment
Only those admitted to postgraduate education may be employed as a doctoral student. The total length of employment may not be longer than what corresponds to full-time doctoral education in four years ' time. An employed doctoral student can, to a limited extent (maximum 20%), perform certain tasks within their role, e.g. training and administration. A new position as a doctoral student is for a maximum of one year, and then the employment may be renewed for a maximum of two years at a time.Union representatives
