Today, as I was around (!), I attended the launch of the new Warwick research project EQUIP (which stands for Enabling quantification of uncertainty for inverse problems). This is an EPSRC funded project merging mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics and geophysics, with a primary target application [alas!] in the oil industry. It will start hiring four (4!) postdocs pretty soon. The talks were all interesting, but I particularly liked the idea that they were addressed primarily to students who were potentially interested in the positions. In addition, Mark Girolami gaves a most appreciated insight on the modelling of uncertainty in PDE models, connecting with earlier notions set by Tony O’Hagan, modelling that I hope we can discuss further when both in Warwick!

I just got news that there are several grant programs offered by the Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris: the first two ones are for visiting professors and the last two ones are for postdocs and Master students from abroad. If you are interested by a postdoc in Paris-Dauphine or a Master in Statistics in my Master program, feel free to apply! Here they are (with different deadlines).
Got an email with this tantalizing offer of a five year postdoctoral position in mathematics at the University of Edinburgh:
Chancellor's Fellowship (five positions) [tenure-track posts at Lecturer or Reader level] Applications are invited for up to five Chancellor's Fellowship posts in Mathematics. Each Fellowship provides a research-focused reduced-teaching position for up to 5 years, followed immediately by a standard open-ended (ie "tenured") lectureship or readership post. Applicants should have research interests in any area of: Applied and Computational Mathematics Financial Mathematics Mathematical Physics Operational Research Pure Mathematics Statistics One of the positions will be specifically dedicated to algebra (Representation Theory, very broadly conceived). Applicants will have a research record of the highest calibre, exhibiting the potential to become an international leader. We welcome candidates whose interests may also reach out to other disciplines. Appointment will normally be made on the Lecturer scale, £37,382 - £44,607. Dependent on experience, and in exceptional circumstances, appointment may be to Senior Lecturer/Reader level for which the salary scale is £47,314 - £53,233. Interviews will be held during May 2013. Applications containing a detailed CV and an outline of a proposed research programme should be made online
I often get emails from ISBA that leave me confused until I realise they are from the “other” ISBA, namely the Institute of Statistics, Biostatistics and Actuarial Sciences in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Here is one such call for a postdoctorant:
The Institute of Statistics, Biostatistics and Actuarial Sciences (ISBA) at the Université catholique de Louvain opens up a PhD position and a postdoc position in the framework of an Interuniversity Attraction Pole Programme (IAP-Belgian Science Policy).
The Institute of Statistics, Biostatistics and Actuarial Sciences (ISBA, http://www.uclouvain.be/isba) is a renowned research centre of high international reputation which offers a very stimulating working environment. Around 30 pre- and postdoctoral researchers are working under the supervision of 10 full-time professors, in a variety of fields of methodological and applied statistics, including biostatistics and actuarial sciences.
The ISBA is currently working on the IAP project _’Developing crucial statistical methods for understanding major complex dynamic systems in natural, biomedical and social sciences_’ and is searching candidates with interest and experience in:
- The study of associations and dependencies in complex systems
- The study of different dynamics in complex systems
- Multivariate modelling and hierarchically structured data
- Dynamics of a stochastic system and the impact of non-observed characteristics
- Variable and model selection and the study of (ultra-)high dimensional data
The candidate (PhD) will also be involved on a small scale into some teaching activities of the institute. *Deadline for application:* February 1, 2013.
Our (ANR) research project BANDHIT (which stands for Bayesian nonparametrics, high dimensional techniques and simulation, so there is no spelling mistake!) is calling for applicants to a one-year postdoc position. The themes are highly exciting: Bayesian nonparametrics, simulation techniques like MCM, SMC and of course ABC! Here is the full call:
We are seeking accomplished applicants for a post-doctoral research associate position. Candidates must hold a PhD in mathematical or computational statistics, and the ideal candidate will have research experience in theoretical properties of Bayesian nonparametric statistics, MCMC or SMC algorithms or nonparametric estimation. The associate will work with several members of the BANDHITS (Bayesian nonparametrics, high dimensional techniques and simulation) research project which includes statisticians from several universities in Paris (Paris-Dauphine, CREST-ENSAE, Paris 6, Paris 7, University Paris-Sud (Orsay), and CEA). The associate will be expected to participate in research leading to publications in top journals. The appointment, which can begin immediately, will be for a one-year contract. Applicants should email their vita, a brief statement of their background and interests to Judith Rousseau, rousseau[chez]ceremade[dot]dauphine[dot]fr
