ERC Advanced Grant - WhiteMech - Giuseppe De Giacomo - PostDoc/PhD Positions
Sapienza Univ. Rome
WhiteMech aims at developing the science and the tools for mechanisms that are able to program themselves, automatically tailor their behavior so as to achieve desired goals, maintain themselves within safe boundaries in a changing environment, and follow regulations and conventions that evolve over time. Crucially, empowering mechanisms with self-programming carries significant risks and therefore we must be able to balance power with safety. For this reason WhiteMech intends to realize mechanisms that are white-box, that is, whose behavior is at any moment fully analyzable and comprehensible in human terms, and guarded by human oversight. Driving Applications. WhiteMech wants to ground its scientific results upon three driving applications: smart manufacturing (Industry 4.0), smart spaces (IoT) and business process management systems (BPM). Positions available as Senior Postdoc, Junior Postdocs and PhD students. Candidates must have strong mathematical and computational skills. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to: Knowledge Representation Planning Autonomous Agents Reinforcement Learning Logics in AI Temporal Logics Automata Synthesis Logics and Games Monitoring and Verification Data-aware processes Service Composition and Business Process Management Interest in applications in Smart Spaces (IoT) and Smart Manufacturing All the research activities will be carried out at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" (the largest university in Rome). Salaries vary depending on experience and are commensurate to international standards. Moreover generous funds for traveling and visiting scholars are available for the entire project team. Perspective candidates are invited to write an expression of interest, including a CV and the name of two references to degiacomo@diag.uniroma1.it.
