Two Tenure track positions in Mathematical Statistics

Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics

Are you a mathematical statistician who is passionate about scientific research and education and enjoys participating in multi-disciplinary projects?

At the Statistics group of the Korteweg-de Vries Instituut voor Wiskunde (KdVI), the  mathematical research institute of the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam, we are looking for new colleagues with expertise in mathematical-statistics or mathematical data science, including (but not restricted to) computational statistics, statistical learning, and statistical
data science.

The position comes with a start-up package consisting of one Ph.D. student and a travel budget. The Korteweg-de Vries Institute strives for a better gender balance in its staff. We therefore strongly encourage women to apply for this position.

Application deadline: December 1, 2019

The Statistics group of the KdVI aims to develop new statistical theory and methodology, including their rigorous justification. The group will be headed by dr. Joris Mooij. The Statistics group is part of the larger Stochastics program, which also contains the Probability group, headed by Prof. Michel Mandjes. Within the science faculty, there are interesting related groups. In particular, in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning there are closely related  activities within the Computer Science department (IvI) and the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC). An interesting development is the recent launch of the Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI), which promotes public-private partnerships in the general area of AI.
