Research Student

Foundations of Deep Learning Lab, Tel Aviv University

TL;DR:

The Foundations of Deep Learning Lab at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science is looking for excellent research students to help develop a mathematical theory behind deep learning.

About us:

Deep learning is experiencing unprecedented success in recent years, delivering state of the art performance in a multitude of application domains.  However, despite its extreme popularity and the vast attention it is receiving, our formal understanding of deep learning is limited.  Its application in practice is based primarily on conventional wisdom, trial-and-error, and intuition, often leading to suboptimal results (compromising not only effectiveness, but also safety, privacy and/or fairness).

The Foundations of Deep Learning Lab at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science is developing a mathematical theory behind deep learning, with the aim of shedding light on existing empirical findings, and more importantly, leading to principled methods that bring forth improved performance and new capabilities.  The lab is headed by Prof. Nadav Cohen, and regularly publishes in top tier machine learning venues (e.g. NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR).  Its research is highly mathematical, but also includes extensive empirical evaluations that support theory.  For more information please visit: https://www.cohennadav.com/.

We are looking for:

You, an excellent mathematically inclined research student, to join us, and help crack open the black box of deep learning.  Typical entry to the lab is at MSc level, with the option of pursuing a subsequent PhD if there is mutual interest.  Entry at PhD level is also possible, but only in exceptional cases.  If interested in applying, please verify that you meet the criteria below, and if so, include in your application CV and grade transcripts.
