Leib­niz-Insti­tut für Agrar­tech­nik und Bio­öko­no­mie e.V. (ATB)

The Leib­niz Insti­tute for Agri­cul­tu­ral Engi­nee­ring and Bio­eco­nomy (ATB) as natio­nally and inter­na­tio­nally acting insti­tute is rese­ar­ching at the inter­face of bio­lo­gi­cal and tech­ni­cal sys­tems. Our rese­arch is aimed at sustainable inten­si­fi­ca­tion. We ana­lyze, model and eva­luate bio-eco­no­mic pro­duc­tion sys­tems. We deve­lop and inte­grate new tech­no­lo­gies and manage­ment stra­te­gies for a know­ledge-based, site-spe­ci­fic pro­duc­tion of bio­mass, and its use for food, as raw mate­ri­als and fuels - from basic rese­arch to app­li­ca­tion. Thus we are con­tri­bu­ting to food secu­rity, ani­mal wel­fare, the holistic use of bio­mass, and to pro­tect the cli­mate and envi­ron­ment.

Sci­en­tist in Machine Lear­ning / Deep Lear­ning. (m/f/d) (65 %)

The com­pu­ter sci­ence junior rese­arch group „Data Sci­ence in Agri­cul­ture“ at the ATB stu­dies intel­li­gent data ana­ly­sis and machine lear­ning methods and their app­li­ca­tion to rese­arch ques­ti­ons in agri­cul­tu­ral tech­no­logy and bio­eco­nomy.
