Project description
This project examines the ecological and genetic mechanisms behind adaptive population differentiation in plants, and the capacity for adaptive evolution in natural populations in response to environmental change.  

Duties
Research into the genetic and ecological mechanisms underlying adaptive differentiation among natural populations of the plant model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. The research will be conducted within the framework of an international research collaboration. The goals are to identify QTL (quantitative trait loci) contributing to local adaptation and to key traits involved in adaptation, to characterize the effects, genetic basis and geographic distribution of QTL alleles, and to examine whether adaptive evolution in local populations is constrained by trade-offs and pleiotropy, and/or the fixation of deleterious mutations. One focus will be on the genetic basis and adaptive significance of variation in flowering time. Duties include the establishment and monitoring of experiments in the field and under controlled conditions in the lab, QTL-mapping, data analysis, and the preparation of manuscripts for publication. Specific subprojects can be tailored to the skills and interests of the successful candidate.

Qualifications required
A PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in evolutionary ecology or population genetics. In the ranking of eligible candidates, importance will primarily be given to scientific proficiency.

Researcher Ethical Artificial Intelligence for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

 


In this era of big data and artificial intelligence (AI), spatial information collected through remote sensing or earth observation is essential for promoting sustainable development. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as RPAS or drones, can collect very detailed imagery and photogrammetric point clouds. Machine learning and deep learning methods (e.g. CNNs, FCNs) can then automatically process this data into spatial information. Indeed this combination of spatial detail provide by UAVs with automated data processing shows great promise to support sustainable development in Lower-Middle Income Countries (LMICs), particularly in applications such as automated building detection, slum mapping, and disaster risk management.

However, there is also an increasing societal concern regarding Ethical AI or AI for good. There are questions regarding hidden biases in algorithms and concerns on how to explain the “black-box” results so they can be trusted and better utilized for decision-making. UNESCO is drafting Recommendations on the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence and the European Commission is drafting a binding Regulation for Artificial Intelligence. These guidelines emphasize the importance of embedding fairness and explainability into algorithms. And yet, despite research in the fields of FATML and XAI, there is little knowledge on how to audit algorithms in the geospatial domain for bias or best practices for explaining the results.

To address this gap there is a vacant full-time position for a researcher in deep learning / ethical AI.

The successful applicant will integrate fairness or explainability techniques into deep learning workflows for classifying UAV imagery. The precise tasks under this theme will be discussed based on the applicant’s expertise.

This position requires a background in deep learning, photogrammetry, geographical information science (GIS), earth observation and/or computer vision and must be confirmed by an excellent track record and proven programming skills.

The research output will be closely connected to the ITC UAV Centre. This Centre centralizes UAV activities at ITC and focusses on the development of educational material, capacity building projects, and consultancy services related to drones and UAVs. It is the intention that your research delivers open source code packages to be reutilized in these projects and can be integrated into the educational material produced by the Centre.

You will:

  • integrate fairness or explain ability techniques into deep learning workflows for classifying UAV imagery.
  • establish a research line on how to integrate explainable AI (XAI) or bias auditing mechanisms into deep learning workflows for Earth Observation and UAV data in particular;
  • implement reliable and robust deep learning workflows;
  • develop and share open codes for reproducible research;
  • publish your results in scientific journals;
  • present results at appropriate meetings and conferences;
  • be involved in educational activities and designing educational material (optional);
  • contribute to national and international project development (optional).

YOUR PROFILE

You have:

  • A PhD in Photogrammetry, GIS, deep learning, or computer science
  • An excellent track of record in one or more of these domains
  • Demonstrated programming skills in deep learning with open toolboxes
  • An ability to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment
  • Excellent communication skills
  • An excellent command of English
  • An affinity with a multi-cultural education environment, excellent work ethics, and commitment to the job
