PhD position "Bayesian Chronology Modelling for Paleoclimate Archives" (m/f/d)

This cutting-edge project at the interface of data-science, statistics
and geochronology aims to develop and apply a methodological framework
needed to fuse chronologic information from different Earth components
into one consistent picture. Different Bayesian statistical models will
be combined to synthesize absolute and relative age-information across
published timeseries in a flexible and extendable way. This will not
only result in a new approach to investigate complex systems in a
data-driven way, but also in a consistently dated network of past
environmental changes.

This project is part of the Helmholtz School for Marine Data Science
(MarDATA) which aims to define and educate a new type of “marine data
scientist” by introducing and embedding researchers from computer
sciences and mathematics into ocean sciences, covering a broad range
from supercomputing and modelling, (bio)informatics, robotics, to
statistics and big data methodologies.

The position is limited to 3 years. The salary will be paid in
accordance with the Collective Agreement for the Public Service of the
Federation (Tarifvertrag des öffentlichen Dienstes, TVöD Bund), up to
salary level 13 (100%). The place of employment will be Jacobs
University, Bremen, with the option of short-term or interim stays at
Alfred Wegener Institute, Bremerhaven.
