Open positions


In the context of the Inria project « Sequential Recommendation for Sustainable Gardening », we are opening a postdoc position, under super-vision by OA Maillard. This is a one year position, but it can easily be extended later on. The topic is on Real-Life Reinforcement Learning Challenges, as we are investigating novel challenges in Reinforcement Learning theory  inspired by application of sequential decision making to fields like agroecology. On the theory side, this includes things such as Causal-RL, Contextual-RL and Robust-RL. The postdoc can work more on the theory side or more on the applied side acording ot his/her own taste. We are expected to investigate an exciting line of research with formalization and modeling of questions that deviate from RL mainstream formalization.
Please contact O-A. Maillard with 3 of your main publications, CV, motivation letter and recommendation letter.


In case you want to apply for PhD, I strongly encourage you to read (a substantial part of) the following books and lecture notes:


Lecture Notes

Interns (summer 2021)

We have a list of (funded) internships proposals, please contact me in case you are interested. We expect students with a solid mathematical background specifically in statistics, information theory and/or dynamical systems.

  • Challenges of Sequential Decision Modelling in AgroEcology: Real-life challenges beyond MDPs. Link.
  • Revisiting Regression Trees and Random Forest with Bandits.

These are intended for Master 2 or outstanding Master 1 students, and generally open the possibility to start a PhD later on. If you are interested, go ahead and contact me directly.
