The candidate will focus her/his work on developing deep learning methods to classify supernovas from lightcurves and images. The main goal is to mitigate the systematic errors affecting the measurement of the dark energy equation of state. The work will benefit from an ongoing collaboration that has already paved the way for the classification of light curves and the estimate of photometric redshifts via pioneering deep learning techniques.


Experience in machine learning or deep learning will be preferred
