Yahoo! is looking for a Senior Research Scientist, Scalable Machine Learning in New York, NY. According to the post, “Machine learning and data mining are ubiquitous in Web research and stand at the core of Yahoo!’s products and platforms, involving important functions such as classification, prediction, ranking, clustering, sampling, compression, recommendation, dimension reduction, indexing, pattern mining and regression. The technical challenges associated with these tasks have been extensively studied using standard computational models. However, they still represent an open research area in large-scale, high-throughput data environments such as Yahoo!’s.”
Qualifications for the position include: “PhD in Computer Science or closely-related discipline. At least 3 years of post-PhD experience in scientific research positions, either in industry or as tenure-track/tenured faculty at a research university. Significant record of publication in top-tier international research venues in fields related to information retrieval, Web mining, natural language processing or closely related disciplines. Experience leading PhD-level scientists (PhD grad student and post-doc experience is adequate); leadership of an organization with more than 3 people is preferred.”
