University of Cambridge Department of Veterinary Medicine West Cambridge Site Research Associate

Limit of Tenure: 18 months

Applications are invited for this postdoctoral position in computational statistics, funded by BBSRC, with the task of developing software for Bayesian optimal experimental design and inference.

The position is part of a new project led by Drs Restif and Dybowski which aims to produce a functional computational package to facilitate the complete integration of dynamic models and laboratory experiments in microbiology and infectious disease research.

This 18-month project will enable us to test the functionality of the package on different experimental systems using existing and new data, before releasing it for free and public use in inter-disciplinary biological research. This package will provide life scientists with a "one-stop shop" that facilitates the full integration of experiments and dynamic models.

This project capitalises on the unique multi-disciplinary expertise within the Disease Dynamics Unit (Department of Veterinary Medicine), which is the largest research team in Cambridge working at the interface of models and experiments on infectious diseases.

Applicants should have a PhD, or significant experience in applied mathematics or a related discipline, must be familiar with state-of-the-art Bayesian methods, and must have solid scientific programming skills in R and other languages.
