Three Assistant Professorships in AI at the University of Amsterdam

Come and join us as an assistant professor in AI in Amsterdam. We have three vacancies with deadlines in the next couple of weeks:

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these positions or their context at the University of Amsterdam.

Fully funded PhD position

Want to pursue a PhD? Interested in developing machine learning methods for understanding and predicting diverse aspects (such as satisfaction and engagement) of online user behavior in the context of recommender systems? Please consider applying to a fully funded vacancy we have right now in the recently launched Mercury Machine Learning Lab, a collaboration between, Delft University of Technology, and the University of Amsterdam.

You can find out more about the new Mercury Machine Learning Lab on this page. All the details on how apply to this position (and to one of the other positions that we have in the new lab) can be found here.

The deadline for applications is August 23, 2021.

If you have any questions, or would to like know more, feel free to reach out to me.

Come and Join Us at the IRLab

Come and work with us at the IRLab at the University of Amsterdam. Vacancies for fully funded PhD students, a research engineer, and an assistant professor.

We will shortly open a vacancy for an assistant professor at the intersection of machine learning and information retrieval. Come and build your own team. Stay tuned.

We will also open a position for a research engineer to support our team. Come and help us develop and share open source solutions and datasets, and keep our clusters spinning happily.

Open already: three vacancies for fully funded PhD students. Come and help us develop the next generation of conversational search. Deadline: November 30. See

If you have any questions, please reach out to Evangelos Kanoulas, Ilya Markov, Sebastian Schelter, or me.

Fully funded PhD position on task-based question answering

Interested in developing conversational systems that support scientific discovery? In question answering algorithms that are able to gather and synthesize complex answers in the task-based setting of a research platform? We have a fully funded PhD position in which you can develop neural models that can retrieve or generate answers from structured and unstructured resources conditioned on inferred or detected task and intent, as part of the Discovery Lab. For details, please visit The deadline is September 15, 2020.

Fully funded PhD position on explainable de-biasing in learning from interaction data

Modern search, recommendation and conversational systems learn from interactions with their users. Interested in developing new algorithms for learning from interaction data? In making this type of learning explainable? In removing bias from interaction data? And in making the de-biasing process as transparent as possible? We have a fully funded PhD position in which you can contribute to these questions as part of the Hybrid Intelligence project. For details, please visit Deadline: August 31, 2020.

Seven new positions at the assistant, associate and full professor level

We’re looking for new colleagues at the assistant, associate and full professor level. Come and join the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam. Together with our colleagues from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI), and the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, we are growing an exciting data science and AI ecosystem, with Amsterdam Data Science (ADS) and the Innovation Center for AI (ICAI). Check out the University’s vacancies at

Come work with us. We’re hiring again

Come work with us. We’re hiring again:

  • One PhD student in AI and IR, to work on multi-modal search, see this page for details
  • Two PhD students in AI and Operations Research, to work on replenishment, see this page for details

Contact me at if you’d like to find out more. I particularly encourage those of diverse backgrounds to apply. I strongly believe that diversity of education, experience, career, and perspectives will lead to a better environment for the researchers in my team and a better intellectual environment for the team as a whole. This is something I value deeply.

Five more vacancies for fully funded PhD students

We just opened five more vacancies for PhD students. The general area is AI for Retail, and the positions are part of the new AIRLab. Areas range from recommendation to federated search and conversational search to replenishment. Deadline: July 16, 2018. Please visit this page for all the details.

IR positions at the University of Amsterdam

We have several positions open at the interface of information retrieval, language technology and artificial intelligence, at different levels at the University of Amsterdam.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
