A position exists for a Post Doctoral Research Associate in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. The successful applicant will join the ERC-funded team of Prof. Richard Nickl and work in the project area *`Statistical aspects of non-linear inverse problems'*, which broadly addresses mathematical and foundational challenges in contemporary data science and the theory of statistical algorithms.
Duties include undertaking your own program of research and assisting with ongoing research programmes, using databases, modelling, computation as appropriate; writing up results for publication; and presenting your work to colleagues at conferences or steering groups, both internally and externally. You may also be asked to assist in the supervision of student projects, and/or to provide supervision/instruction to classes or small groups of students.
The successful candidate will have completed (or nearly completed) a Ph.D. degree in mathematics and have relevant background knowledge in mathematical statistics and probability theory. Further knowledge of modern techniques in analysis and partial differential equations (PDEs) will strengthen any application but is not strictly necessary. Previous relevant research experience at this level is desirable but not essential.
Fixed-term: The fund for this post is available for 2 years in the first instance, with a possible extension to 3 years.
