Applications are invited for up to three PhD positions in “Computational Bayesian Statistics with applications to decentralised machine learning” at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick.
The successful applicants will be part of the OCEAN project, a 10M Euro ERC-funded project involving around 30 researchers in Warwick, Paris and Berkeley (Further details below).
These studentships will be based at the University of Warwick Statistics Department which houses one of the largest and most successful groups in Computational Bayesian Statistics worldwide and successful applicants will join a vibrant local research community, as well as having the opportunity to interact closely with other researchers within the OCEAN consortium.
Applicants should have an interest and some background in Computational Bayesian methods interpreted widely, and applicants with more theoretical, more applied and/or more computational interests are equally encouraged to apply. Background in machine learning, privacy, game theory, federated learning and high-performance computing would be helpful for some topics but are not essential.
Successful applicants will have PhD fees covered from OCEAN as well as receiving an additional stipend beginning at £20,000 and access to a Research Training and Support fund of at least £5,000 to cover research equipment and travel costs. Studentships will be for up to 4 years.
