University Lecturer in Astrostatistics

University of Cambridge - Depts of Maths, Physics & Astronomy

To be held jointly in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics and either the Department of Physics or the Institute of Astronomy.

Applications are invited for the post of University Lecturer in Astrostatistics.

Astrostatistics is the application of statistics to solve the challenges posed by massive and complex datasets in modern astrophysics. This is an inter-disciplinary field in which advances in astrophysics and statistics are obtained by the analysis and interpretation of astronomical datasets.

Applications are invited in any area of astrostatistics, including its theoretical, methodological and computational aspects. The field includes computational statistics, inference, algorithm development, machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, data visualization, signal processing and parameter estimation.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in statistics or astronomy or physics or a cognate subject, will have a track record of excellent research publications, & will be expected to lead and pursue a research program of the highest standard. It is expected that their research programme will be firmly grounded in both departments.

The successful candidate will be committed to teaching and will be expected to contribute to the teaching programmes of both Departments at undergraduate and graduate level. They will contribute, as appropriate, to the academic administration of the Departments and the University.
