Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Mathematical Foundations of Data Science (3 posts)

University of Oxford - Mathematical Institute

Location: Oxford
Salary: £33,309 to £40,927 per annum, Grade 7
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 18th November 2021
Closes: 8th December 2021
Job Ref: 154459

We invite applications for up to three Postdoctoral Research Associates to work on an exciting new project to address significant mathematical and engineering challenges arising from multidimensional big data. 

The positions are based at the Mathematical Institute, and form a key part of a substantial new Centre for Intelligent Multidimensional Data Analysis (CIMDA) funded by the Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Commission. Each position is available full time for 12 months in the first instance, though funding for the project is expected to be renewed and if so, it may be possible to extend the length of this appointment by another year. They are available for an immediate start. 

The successful candidates will work with leading researchers in stochastic analysis and data science at Oxford as part of a larger, multidisciplinary team. They will manage and conduct their own academic research and administrative activities, write up their results for publication and participate fully in the activities of the research community at Oxford. Potential research directions include, but are not limited to, scalable optimization algorithm development and analysis; stochastic processes and rough paths; reduced precision and parallel-in-time computations; high-dimensional matrices and tensors and their decompositions; hypergraphs models; learning of non-Euclidean data; and sparse deep neural networks. 

Applicants will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline, and possess sufficient specialist knowledge and research experience in one or more of the areas of data science, machine learning, numerical analysis, optimization, scientific computing and their applications, to work within established research programmes. They will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings. 

We proudly hold a Race Equality Charter Bronze Award and a departmental Athena SWAN Silver Award, which guide our progress towards advancing racial and gender equality. As part of our commitment to openness, inclusivity and transparency, we would particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in positions of this type at Oxford. 

Please direct informal enquiries to the Recruitment Coordinator at the email address given below, quoting vacancy reference 154459. 

Applicants will be selected for interview purely based on their ability to satisfy the selection criteria as outlined in full in the job description. You will be required to upload a statement setting out how you meet the selection criteria, a curriculum vitae including full list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the contact details of two referees as part of your online application. (NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their referees and making sure that their letters are received by the closing date). 

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Wednesday 8th December 2021 can be considered.
