PhD position in mathematical/computational statistics in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium)
The Institute of Statistics, Biostatistics and Actuarial Sciences (ISBA) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, has a vacancy for 1 PhD position in mathematical statistics.
You will be working with Prof. Rainer von Sachs on a PhD project on ”Data Structures on non-Euclidean geometries” which is situated at the intersection of nonparametric statistics (nonparametric curve estimation), a bit of differential geometry (Riemannian manifolds) and some computational aspects (collaboration with research in machine learning can be included.)
You have a Master degree in statistics or mathematics - with a clear interest in geometrical aspects of non-standard data structures (curves, surfaces, ...) for which we will develop statistical inference. Your diploma must have been obtained with at least distinction (70%) or an equivalent grade. Good knowledge of written and spoken English is required. Although you will be living in a French speaking environment, no proper knowledge of French is required.
