Technische Universität Berlin offers an open position:
part-time employment may be possible
The Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) at Technische Universität Berlin (Prof. Dr. Klaus-Robert Müller) is seeking a Research Associate in Machine Learning for an Agility subproject. The agility project will be carried out in close cooperation with the project "The Sphere. Knowledge System Evolution and the Shared Scientific Identity of Europe" (https://sphaera.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de) by Prof. Dr. Matteo Valleriani at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin.
Valleriani's group is developing algorithms to study knowledge systems in the history of science. Building on a dataset extracted from astronomical tracts of the early modern period (ca. 1450-1650), the overall goal of the project is to identify mechanisms of knowledge evolution and to quantify these processes. Data refer to texts, images, and numerical computational tables. The focus of this unit is on transcribing, augmenting and analyzing texts using machine learning.
