Current open positions in Jena (flexible home office rules also allow working from another city)

  • Jena: Postdoc position within DLR project “Causal Anomalies” on developing causal inference methods for causal attribution of anomalies in various application domains. Apply here.
  • Jena: Postdoc position within DLR project “Quantum machine learning”. Apply here.

In all positions you will develop theory and methods at the forefront of causal inference and AI and help climate and other domain scientists apply them to better understand complex dynamical systems such as the Earth. The well-funded positions offer ample opportunities for research travel and more extended stays at our international partners and can also be involved in the ELLIS network among leading European AI researchers. We look for applicants with a strong background in math/stats/physics/ML and especially encourage women to apply. A background in climate science is NOT needed.

Note on Home Office: At DLR Jena remote work may be possible, in agreement with the employer, to the extent of up to a maximum of 80 percent of the contractually agreed work performance in a calendar month. This means that we are open to you working remotely from another (German) city and coming to Jena on a regular basis.

Open positions in Berlin


This is part of the ERC Starting Grant CausalEarth at Technical University (TU) Berlin where I am guest professor in the computer science department since February 2021. The new branch enables lively exchange and collaborations with the world-class TU research chairs on AI and machine learning. CausalEarth (more information here) develops causal inference and discovery methods inspired by challenges of the spatio-temporal complex system Earth.
