Research Posts in Inverse Problems+Computational PDEs+U.Q.

Fixed term position for 12 months (2 posts available)

Applications are invited for a number of postdoctoral research fellow positions to work on the £2.6m EPSRC-funded Programme Grant EQUIP (Enabling Quantification of Uncertainty for Inverse Problems). Posts will be based at the University of Warwick or at Imperial College.

EQUIP tackles a number of key methodological and theoretical challenges arising in the solution of statistical inverse problems, primarily driven by applications in subsurface inversion such as groundwater flow, oil and gas reservoirs and carbon sequestration but researchers with interest in the solution of inverse problems arising in other application domains, such as biology, medicine and the social sciences are also encouraged to apply.

The EQUIP team comprises Charlie Elliott (Mathematics, Warwick), Mark Girolami (Statistics/Mathematics, Imperial College), Gareth Roberts (Statistics, Warwick). There is also the possibility of spending part of the postdoctoral appointment at Caltech working with Andrew Stuart who is a co-investigator on the grant. Applicants with expertise in the areas of inverse problems, numerical analysis, computational partial differential equations, computational statistics and theoretical statistics are encouraged to apply.

You should apply directly to the institution where you wish to be based, although if you are flexible you are strongly encouraged to apply to both Imperial College and Warwick.

Your application should include a CV and list of publications. You should also send a research statement by email to Ann Hume, Departmental Secretary, Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick at MathematicsPA@warwick.ac.uk and ensure that your 3 referees send their references to the same email address by the closing date.

Interviews for all posts are expected to be conducted at the University of Warwick during September 2017 (date to be confirmed).
