Within a few weeks a full-time two-year position for a postdoctoral researcher in the UQ group will be advertised by the Freie Universität Berlin. This position will be associated to the project “Analysis of maximum a posteriori estimators: Common convergence theories for Bayesian and variational inverse problems” funded by the DFG.
This project aims to advance the state of the art in rigorous mathematical understanding of MAP estimators in infinite-dimensional statistical inverse problems. In particular, the research in this project will connect the “small balls” approach of Dashti, Law, Stuart, and Voss to the calculus of variations and hence properly link the variational and fully Bayesian points of view on inverse problems.
Precise details of the application process will appear soon, at which point this news item will be updated accordingly. In the meantime, prospective candidates are welcome to contact me with informal enquiries.
This semester, Winter Semester 2016–2017, I will be teaching the third-semester course Stochastik I for mathematics bachelors' degree students at the Free University of Berlin. Exercise sheets, announcements, etc. for this course will all be posted on this page, as well as on the official FU Berlin webpages such as KVV.
There is an opening in my research group for a postdoctoral researcher in Uncertainty Quantification. Strong candidates with backgrounds in mathematics, statistics, or computational science are encouraged to apply. For details see:
Review of applications will begin on 11 January 2016 and will continue until the post is filled.
