Shape the Future with Us!

Machine Learning is your passion, and you want to play an active role in shaping Germany’s future? Then send us your application! The Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr (ML2R) is growing. Grow with us! We are looking for researchers who are curious and have a degree in computer science or a related field of study and already have some experience in Machine Learning.

What Can You Expect from Us?

We conduct research on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence – research areas that will decisively shape our lives in the coming years. In doing so, we are committed to values and ethical standards. We are aware of our social responsibility: Interdisciplinary teams of computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians, as well as philosophers, lawyers and social scientists work on specific research questions.

Personal and professional development

Regardless of whether you are pursuing a career in science or industry, we create the best conditions for your further development, personally, professionally and within the team. In addition to passing on expert knowledge, we offer further training programs to help you realize your full potential. This includes courses on research project management, but also soft skill trainings on topics such as scientific writing, work organization, communication strategies or awareness of diversity. As a PhD student, you will be encouraged to present your work and expertise at public events and scientific conferences, or to create working groups and hackathon teams tailored to your interests.

Diversity and equal opportunities

Diversity is an important objective for us. Diverse working groups typically have a positive impact on the quality of science because its members bring different perspectives, experiences, and skills to the group. The Competence Center ML2R is therefore strongly committed to diversity and equal opportunities: With our successfully established seminar series on diversity, in which both new employees and experienced managers regularly participate, we promote open and unbiased cooperation.

Flexibility and family friendliness

We actively promote the balance between work and family life. Thus, our partner institutions offer various options for childcare and support services for families. Other offerings include mobile working opportunities, flexible working hours and consideration when planning events and appointments.

Join the team

Become part of our diverse team of outstanding international researchers! We give you the opportunity to do your PhD at ML2R or to strengthen our team as a post doc. We also offer the opportunity to supervise your master’s thesis on Machine Learning in the Competence Center.
