Imperial College London/ Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellows

Imperial-X is a new research initiative at Imperial College London that aims to develop novel approaches for research, teaching and innovation by harnessing the potential of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and digital technologies.

A number of research themes have been developed within Imperial-X, including Imperial-X in Space The goal of this initiative, led by Dr. Jonathan Eastwood, Prof. Tom Pike, and Prof. Julie McCann, is to harness the power of AI and ML to ensure the future of space is sustainable, safe, and secure.

In this context, I am very pleased to announce that Imperial-X has secured over 130 years of independent fellowship time devoted to AI in Science over the next 6 years, part of a Schmidt Futures supported program. For more details about the fellowships and definitions of AI, Science etc please see:, and for more background information about the overall programme please see:

Imperial will be recruiting 10 fellows at research associate level to start a 12-month position in the new year (application deadline 27 November 2022) and is recruiting a cohort of 20 fellows (2 year positions) to start in September 2023 (application deadline 8 December 2022). The adverts are available here:

As part of the Imperial-X in Space initiative, we are requesting expressions of interest in applying for these fellowships, in order to identify appropriate mentors and internal support. These positions are aimed at someone who has a track record of using machine learning and artificial intelligence to advance scientific understanding, and we are seeking individuals who can use these skills to catalyse progress in key questions relating to the issues of space safety and sustainability. Of particular interest is the study of space physics and space weather.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email with a CV, publication list, and a brief one-page description of your proposed programme of research by Tuesday 15 November.
