Research Associate in Scientific Computing

The University of Edinburgh - School of Engineering

College of Science and Engineering

We seek an outstanding researcher for a project addressing randomised algebra algorithms for real-time process analytics. In essence, the aim is to develop statistical computing tools that utilise a priori available information on model structure. This project is funded by EPSRC, and will be based at the School of Engineering of the University of Edinburgh. The successful applicant will conduct research into developing and analysing randomised sampling algorithms for solving partial differential equations on high dimensional models and inverse regression problems to estimate model parameters. The responsibilities include the design of randomisation algorithms for finite element matrix sketching, design of subset selection algorithms for large-scale regression, analysis of the randomisation-induced error to quantify the variance in the estimated quantities, software implementation in Matlab or Python, and publishing peer reviewed articles and presenting work at conferences.

The post is funded for 24 months, starting March 1st, 2018.

Closing Date: 31 January 2018 at 5pm GMT
