The DOLCIT Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Decision, Optimization, and Learning at the California Institute of Technology (DOLCIT) research group announces postdoctoral openings starting Fall 2021. Areas of interest are: decision theory, machine learning, optimization, statistics, and data-driven methods broadly construed.

DOLCIT brings together people from machine learning, optimization, applied math, statistics, control, robotics, and human-computer interaction to form an intellectual core pertaining fundamental and applied research in "Decision, Optimization, and Learning at the California Institute of Technology." DOLCIT envisions a world where intelligent systems seamlessly integrate learning and planning, as well as automatically balance computational and statistical tradeoffs in the underlying optimization problems.
