Researcher in Explainable Artificial Intelligence for Environmental Applications (M/F) Strategic interest for ERIN/Environmental Informatics Unit In terms of Computer Science topics, the ENVINFO Unit focuses on Data Analytics (e.g. Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Statistical Analysis) and on 2D/3D Interactive Visualisation (e.g. Visual Analytics, Augmented Reality and Geographical Information Systems). The ENVINFO Unit cooperates with various environmental sciences experts to propose answers to some of the most critical socio-economic challenges of the 21st century, like managing sustainable resources, reducing the environmental impact of human activities or managing the consequences of extreme events. A major trend currently observed in AI is to provide explainable models that the domain experts can understand and trust. This need is required in many circumstances, for instance, when the AI models are used to support actions in environmental crises (e.g. floods), to configure complex systems (e.g. bioreactors) or to decide on large investments (e.g. renewal of water or energy infrastructures). The question of the traceability and reproducibility of the processing of the data is also a relevant topic in this context. The ENVINFO Unit members have been working on understandable models for more than a decade but the recent impressive growth of the potential applications of AI in new fields requires the Unit’s capabilities to be strengthened in this domain.
The proposed position aims to extend our existing expertise in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We are looking for an R&T Associate to strengthen our capacities in making Artificial Intelligence more understandable. The candidate should be passionate about opening “black box” models to understand how they work, how they are sensitive to the data used to build them and/or how they could exhibit unexpected behaviour in some special circumstances. She/he will also be asked to intervene in a variety of research tasks: RDI work:
  • Participate in RDI project development, in particular by contributing to scientific project proposal writing
  • Actively contribute to the development of collaborative projects with industry, and put forward propositions in this regard
  • Design (Explainable) AI algorithms and implement them in usable software components to be integrated into complex IT architectures
  • Explore, develop and assess new applications of AI in the environmental domain (e.g. clean biotechnologies, water management, smart agriculture, environmental crisis management, etc.)
Project management:
  • Manage RDI project work packages
  • Manage RDI projects (e.g. National Research Fund CORE junior, small service offers, etc.) as PI
  • Identify and work on the development of future R&T and funding initiatives together with more senior staff
  • Report internally and/or externally
  • Be responsible for the realisation of deliverables in the expected time frame
Dissemination, valorisation and transfer:
  • Disseminate, valorise and transfer RDI results (patents, licences, prototypes, publications, technical reports, conference participation)
  • Produce scientific publications, including some as first author
  • Write technical reports
  • Make presentations at workshops
  • Develop scientific and technological networks
Moreover the candidate should have expertise and an interest in designing and implementing innovative solutions to make the Machine Learning techniques used, for instance, in image processing, time-series analytics or predictive analytics, more explainable. Knowledge in using visualisation techniques to support the understanding of AI models is not required but will be considered a plus. The selected candidate will be asked to apply her/his skills to research projects as well as to collaborative projects with industry. She or he must have a strong interest and proven experience in research (e.g. accepted publications) as well as in implementing software prototypes. Some experience in contributing to writing project proposals targeting national or international calls is considered an asset. International experience is considered an asset. ]]>

    Researcher in Earth Observation Applications (M/F) Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) department. With a team of more than 170 scientists and engineers from life science, environmental science, and IT science, the ERIN department is tackling major environmental challenges our society is facing today: climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, environmental pollution prevention and control. We are offering a postdoctoral researcher position in Earth Observation (EO) data analytics. She/he will join the Remote Sensing and Natural Resources Modelling team of ERIN's Environmental Modelling and Sensing (ENVISION) unit. This unit carries out impact-driven research, geared towards monitoring, forecasting and predicting environmental systems in a changing world. She/he will integrate an interdisciplinary team of around 50 scientists, engineers, post-docs and PhD candidates supporting the public and private sectors by developing new process understanding, alongside new environmental management tools and technologies, operating at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales.
    Satellite remote sensing data for EO, most notably the data streams generated by the Sentinel missions under the framework of the European Copernicus program, provide an unprecedented wealth of information for crisis events affecting large areas. The open position aims to complement ongoing work retrieving actionable pieces of information from such multi sensor EO data.
    The work will include exploring how different collections of satellite EO data can be used to substantially reduce disaster risk (i.e. losses in lives, livelihoods and health, damages to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services). New data processing tools need to be developed to contribute to an improved understanding of disaster risk in all its dimensions of vulnerability, capacity, exposure of persons and assets, hazard characteristics and the environment. Such knowledge may then be used for risk assessment, prevention, mitigation, preparedness and emergency response.

    The successful applicant is expected to:
    • Contribute to the development of tailored products from EO data for various stakeholders in disaster risk management and, in particular, flood management
    • Intervene in developing classification algorithms for the identification of changes occurring in the areas of interest using large collections of radar data from Sentinel 1 and optical data from Sentinel 2. Moreover, the extraction of added value products for operational use usually involves the exploration of heterogeneous data from other sources that need to be proficiently combined
    • Apply the classification algorithms on collections of Copernicus data to generate geo-information databases informing on disaster risk at large scale (with a special focus on flood risk)
    • Collaborate with an international project team on the development of innovative data fusion approaches of EO data, as well as on assimilation methods for the integration of observation data into environmental models
    Moreover, the applicant could also be involved in the following research tasks:
    • Provide input to the definition of research concepts
    • Collaborate with other researchers in order to promote interdisciplinary activities internally
    • Assist in the preparation of project reports and presentations
