AI/ML Expert

Termin zbierania ofert: 03-05-2024

Currently, we are looking for a person for a position of:

AI/ML Expert

Localization: Świerk near Otwock - in the outskirts of Warsaw with daily transport services provide.

Who we are: A European Centre of Excellence for Multifunctional Advanced Materials Research

NOMATEN CoE is formed through a partnership between NCBJ (Poland), CEA (France) and VTT (Finland). NOMATEN plans to develop in-house functional programs and applications that will aim at understanding client requirements and how they translate in application features. The project goal is to produce fully functional software applications according to requirements and market/industry needs. The focus of these applications will be both popular strategies in materials informatics, as well as in-house developed approaches for dimensional reduction, machine learning and simulation of Large Data. An example is an easy-to-use GUI module for processing imaging data sets from external data-bases, locally stored, as well as popular libraries such as the Materials Project, Materials Data Facility, and Materials Platform for Data Science. It will provide implementations for an extensive library of feature extraction routines developed by the materials community, and ultimately produce material configuration supercells that can be simulated for mechanical and atomistic properties. Our projects are expected to integrate closely with machine learning and data analysis packages already developed and in use by the Python data science community, so the knowledge of Python is a prerequisite.

NOMATEN Centre of Excellence offers access to one of the largest computing clusters in Poland, as well as the possibility to work together with experts from our international collaboration network. As the expected work is highly creative we can also provide opportunities for personal and career development. We encourage, in particular, candidates with a combination of interests spanning various research domains (from physics to medicine) and the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We expect our team members not only to participate in AI/ML application building workflows but also in talking to scientists producing and / or analyzing data, contributing to piloting research workflows on all levels.

We are looking for a qualified expert on artificial intelligence and machine learning that will assist researchers to perform AI-related research tasks, co-author high-impact research journal publications, and in addition, develop commercializable products, such as AI models for custom datasets, always in close collaboration and supervision by full-time researchers. S/he will work as part of a team and individually with weekly requirements of professional meetings across stakeholders.


  • Collaborate with a team of IT professionals to set specifications for new applications.
  • Design creative prototypes according to specifications.
  • Write high quality source code to program complete applications within deadlines.
  • Perform unit and integration testing before launch.
  • Conduct functional and non-functional testing.
  • Troubleshoot and debug applications.
  • Evaluate existing applications to reprogram, update and add new features.
  • Develop technical documents and handbooks to accurately represent application design and code.


  • Proficiency in both English and Polish language, expect to lead in-person stakeholders' meetings on a weekly basis.
  • Proficiency in Django, Docker, Git
  • Proficiency in Pyspark
  • Proficiency in standard AI/ML methodologies (SVM, Regression, examples, etc) and packages (SKLearn, Keras, etc)
  • Excellent understanding of software design and programming principles.
  • A team player with excellent communication skills.
  • Analytical thinking and problem-solving capability.
  • Great attention to detail and time-management skills.
  • MSc/MA in a scientific field is required.

We offer:

  • A chance to make ones' mark by participation in the creation of a new international Centre of Excellence – NOMATEN.
  • Personal and professional development with a diverse range of tasks and challenges.
  • Working with cutting edge technology at one of the largest supercomputer centers in Poland.
  • Employment contract.
  • Stable working conditions without overtimes and atmosphere of teamwork.
