Research Staff and Post Docs.

The Duke Applied Machine Learning lab is always interested in hiring new research staff in the form of Postdoctoral researchers or Research scientists. If you are interested in working with us, please contact Dr. Leslie Collins.

Ph.D. Applicants

We generally look for Ph.D. applicants with electrical engineering, statistics, or similar undergraduate experience. Our research involves becoming intimately familiar with a physical sensor and applying/developing machine learning techniques to improve the performance of that device. Please look to the ECE Department resources for information about the application process and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Undergraduate/Masters Students

If you are an undergraduate or masters student at Duke in the Pratt School of Engineering there are many opportunities to get research experience with our lab. These experiences include independent study, work study, masters project, masters thesis, etc. Please look below for who to contact based on your interested research area.

Dr. Jordan Malof

  • Deep learning applied to remote sensing data (e.g., aerial and satellite data, such as color imagery and Lidar)
  • Landmine detection (a variety of sensor data available)
  • General topics in machine learning
