Post-Doctoral Researcher in Deep Learning for Seismic Inverse Problems

Braude College of Engineering / Total USA
Country of Position: 
Contact Name: 
Dr. Amir Adler
Subject Area: 
Machine Learning for Signal Processing
Start Date: 
28 April 2020
Expiration Date: 
01 October 2020
Position Description: 

We seek a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher for a cutting-edge research project sponsored by Total Exploration & Production Research & Technology, USA. The research is held at Braude College of Engineering, Israel, in close collaboration with Total and includes visiting periods at Total (Houston, USA). The postdoctoral researcher will develop novel deep learning algorithms for solving complex seismic inversion problems. Topics of interest include:

  • Deep Learning for 3D seismic inversion and imaging
  • Multi-task deep learning
  • Variational Networks and regularization for deep network solutions to inverse problems
  • Relations between deep learning and compressed sensing, for seismic inversion
  • Hyper Networks: dynamically self-tuning deep networks
  • Neural Architecture Search (NAS) algorithms 

Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in engineering, computer science, geoscience, geophysics or related fields, with excellent Python programming skills and publications in one or more of the following areas:

  • Deep Learning or Machine Learning
  • Signal and Image Processing
  • Parallel Computing and High-Performance Computing (HPC) 
  • Wave Propagation

Experience in Deep Learning is a significant advantage. Prior knowledge in seismic data is an advantage, however, not required. The Postdoctoral position carries no teaching obligations, although teaching opportunities are possible for those interested, as well as opportunities to supervise undergraduate and graduate students. The minimum commitment is for one year, with a possibility to extend for a second year. We offer a highly competitive salary, in a joint academia and industry research, with first class research environment and computing resources. Interested candidates are welcome to send an updated CV to the principal investigators:
