Postdoc position: Analysis of MAP estimators

Within a few weeks a full-time two-year position for a postdoctoral researcher in the UQ group will be advertised by the Freie Universit├Ąt 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.
