The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems has campuses in Stuttgart and Tübingen. Our goal is to understand the principles of perception, action and learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future artificially intelligent systems. The institute studies these principles in biological, computational, hybrid, and material systems ranging from nano- to macro-scales. We take a highly interdisciplinary approach that combines mathematics, computation, materials science, and biology.
The newly established Minerva Research Group on Probabilistic Learning, headed by Isabel Valera, within the Department of Empirical Inference at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany, is looking for PhD students in the area of machine learning, particularly in Bayesian modeling and inference, starting early 2019.
