Baidu USA

Company Information: Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Baidu USA is the R&D center of Baidu, China’s largest search engine provider. Baidu USA’s team of elite, world-class researchers and engineers devote their time to tackling the most challenging, change-the-world projects in AI and related fields. Baidu USA is comprised of four groups: Baidu Research US, Intelligent Driving Group US, Baidu USDC and Duer US.

At Baidu USA, we act with the nimbleness of a startup, but as a global company, have access to immense computing resources and data. This makes Baidu USA the best place for those working in AI to see their work developed and potentially deployed to millions of users.

In case in you are wondering, the name Baidu was inspired by a poem written more than 800 years ago during China’s Song Dynasty. Baidu, whose literal meaning is “hundreds of times” represents a persistent search for the ideal.

The Big Data Lab (BDL-US) at Baidu Research invites applications for a number of Postdoctoral Fellowships, to conduct original research in computer science and statistics.  Areas of research include statistical learning, deep nets, theoretical computer science, security, natural language processing, computer vision, knowledge graphs, etc.  The initial contract will be for one year and may be extended for the second and third years, depending on mutual agreement.

The Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to work in either Seattle or Silicon Valley Offices. Special arrangement may be made for applicants who wish to work in China (Beijing or Shenzhen).  The starting annual salary is expected to exceed $100,000 (USD). This fellowship should be an excellent opportunity for outstanding fresh PhD graduates who hope to spend a couple of years in an industry research lab before going to academia. Those who already have faculty offers are also welcome to apply if they can make proper arrangements with their universities.

Applicants are expected to have PhD degrees in Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, or Electrical Engineering. Please send applications to bdlus_job@baidu.com, with a CV, a statement of research, and two or three representative research manuscripts.
