The start date to be negotiated with the successful candidate.

We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow, to work in the area of probabilistic machine learning, decision making and data-driven causal inference.

The post is a joint appointment between the Departments of Computer Science and Statistics at the University of Warwick. You will join a team of researchers affiliated with the ATI and led by Dr Theo Damoulas, including research assistants and PhD students in computer science and statistics. You will have opportunnities to collaborate with external partners from Microsoft Research, Data61, Amazon and policy makers from GLA, TfL and the UK government.

You will be expected to perform high quality research under the supervision of Dr. Theo Damoulas, as part of the Turing AI Acceleration Fellowship Machine Learning Foundations for Digital Twins, awarded to Theo. This project is likely to involve hierarchical Bayesian models, nonparametric Bayesian inference, graphical models, causal inference, experimental design and issues in spatio-temporal inference such as non-stationarity and non-separability. The expectation is that you will produce breakthrough research results in the areas of Bayesian statistics, causal inference, causal AI, and contribute to publishing these results in top rated venues.

You will possess a PhD or an equivalent qualification in Statistics or Computer Science or Applied Mathematics (or you will shortly be obtaining it). You should have a very strong background in one or more of the following areas: Bayesian inference, spatial statistics, probabilistic machine learning, causal inference and structural causal modeling.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,497). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the level 6 of the University grade structure (£31,406).

Candidates should provide their application form a CV, a list of publications and a research.
