Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistics at Eindhoven University of Technology

Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands is offering postdoctoral scholar position in computer science. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for two years in Netherlands. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

The department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Eindhoven University of Technology is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in Statistics

The section comprises chairs in probability, statistics, and stochastic operation research. It is one of the three sections with Mathematics of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.

The research program in studies random spatial structures and its applications in statistical physics and networking, with a focus on random networks, spin systems and self-interacting random processes. The main aim is to identify the scaling behavior for these systems, by applying methodology such as large deviations, combinatorial expansions and coupling techniques.

The research program in develops, studies and compares statistical methods for collecting and analyzing complex structured and multivariate data sets. These methods include parameter estimation, Bayesian analysis, model fitting, latent variable models, mixed models, missing data, process control, survival & reliability theory, time series analysis, statistical learning methods, and causality. Among the central themes is the analysis of high-dimensional temporal data sets and other large data sets, but analysis of small data sets are not neglected. The research is driven and inspired by applicationsfrom engineering and health and life sciences. The group actively explores new research lines in Data Science and maintains many strong ties with industry, including bio-pharmaceutical companies, chemical industry, high-tech companies and medical centers.

The research program in focuses on systems that operate in the presence of randomness. It aims at developing mathematical models and methods for the design, analysis, optimization and control of such systems. A large part of the research effort is devoted to queueing theory and the analysis of random walks related toit. Some of the queueing research is of a fundamental nature, and much of it is inspired by problems in production and logistics and in computer communication systems.

The statistics group collaborates intensively with national and international scientific research groups from different data science disciplines (mathematical statistics, industrial statistics, bio-statistics, chemometrics, epidemiologists, etc.) The statistics group is interested in both theoretical and applied work. Additionally, the group has a strong industrial network with large Dutch industries and institutes to be able to fuel and implement their research. Through the existing collaborations, the statistics group has access to a few relevant (high-frequent) multivariate longitudinal data sets that provides some interesting analysis challenges that are in need of a solution. The group is also trying to modernize their teaching concepts by using new teaching approaches.

The statistics group has an opening for a postdoc position for two years. The postdoc will work one-year on the project e-watch and one year on the project that is part of the NWA startimpuls "Meten en Detecteren" funded by NWO (https://www.ti gezondgedraggehonoreerd.html)

The postdoc is expected to perform relevant research in the area of statistics of the statistics group to help build and strengthen the team. The postdoc isexpected to also play a dominant role in the unique joint research and education programs of the data science initiative of Eindhoven University of Technology and Tilburg University (JADS: Furthermore, the postdoc will partly teach statistics to students from different origins (mathematics, computer science, data science, and other engineers). The postdoc will work closely with the head of the statistics group.

The candidate for the postdoc position has a PhD degree in statistics (or closely related field) and has a specialization preferably in the area of the statistics group mentioned above. The candidate has published in peerreviewed international statistical journals. Furthermore, the postdoc candidate is also an excellent teacher in statistics for mathematics students and students with different backgrounds. The candidate has a strong affinity with real applications, good communication skills, English speaking and writing skills, and a willingness to learn Dutch.
