Research Fellow Ailecs at Monash University

Monash University is delighted to offer a postdoctoral scholar position in artificial intelligence. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before September 15, 2019.

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions with access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities. We're a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what's expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers. Innovative, supportive, successful and with great breadth and depth of talent, Monash Information Technology is a leader in research and education. We provide an ideal environment in which to excel and are located in Melbourne, one of the world's most liveable cities.

Technology is an ever-more central and ubiquitous part the human experience, and it constantly changes the way we live our lives, for better or worse. One of the highest priorities of the Monash University's fast-growing, world-class Faculty of IT is to consistently be at the forefront of innovative research into how technology can be used for good social outcomes.

As part of this ongoing mission, the newly launched Artificial Intelligence for Law Enforcement and Community Safety (AiLECS) research lab is proud to announce an opening for a committed and dedicated Research Fellow to join our expanding team!

The AiLECS lab is a joint initiative of Monash University and the Australian Federal Police, and we investigate how the ethical use of AI and machine learning can assist with accelerating the investigation and prosecution of heinous crimes such as child exploitation and terrorism. This is an incredibly important research area, as exposure to the material associated with such areas can cause significant psychological trauma for police officers and the judiciary.

A crucial part of this work has been access to real case data for training machine learning algorithms. Due to its illegal and disturbing nature, a "data airlock" server architecture has been developed in the lab allowing tightly controlled access in such a way that researchers can train algorithms without being exposed to the raw data.

Watch how this research creates better social outcomes.

We are seeking an outstanding qualified researcher to join our team. Ideally you will have worked in machine learning with deep neural networks for image classification or other relevant experience. The AiLECS lab has a focus on the rapid operationalisation of research work into technologies for integration with law enforcement systems. There is also a strong emphasis in the lab on international collaboration.

If you are enthusiastic at the prospect of taking on an important and ground-breaking challenge that does demonstrable social good, we strongly encourage you to apply!

For six consecutive years, Melbourne has been rated the #1 city worldwide for quality of life (seeEconomist&Guardian), with excellent education, healthcare, infrastructure, low crime, and exceptional cuisine, cultural activities, and creative design. The regional area is renowned for its dramatic coastline, extensive parks, exotic wildlife, and the Yarra Valley wine region.

This is a unique opportunity to join a leading "Group of 8" University with top-rankings and like-minded, passionate academics. If you feel you have the drive and expertise to contribute to this cutting-edge group, then we encourage you to apply!

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University may require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
