תיאור המשרה:

The Weizmann Institute is searching for a technological leader to develop and run a unique program aiming at bringing innovative AI to diverse scientific challenges. The individual we are looking for would be a natural technological leader that will help build and guide a new team of brilliant Weizmann AI fellows. The fellows will be hired as independent technologists with mixed non-academic backgrounds to interact with the excellence-based scientific community at Weizmann to identify and develop high-risk interdisciplinary and disruptive projects. The guru will nurture and mentor this unique group of fellows, and guide their projects in collaboration with Weizmann scientists. The goal is to bring about unexpected scientific and technological innovation in diverse fields, including physics, chemistry, materials, environmental sciences, and biology. The fellows program headed by the Guru will thus contribute to and benefit from the flow of ideas between industry, computer science, and brain sciences.
