PhD Position in Statistics at the University of Twente, NL
The department of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS) of the University of Twente (UT) has an opening for three full-time, 4-year, fully-funded PhD positions to strengthen the newly started Theme Team in Sports, Data and Interaction. The PhD candidates will work closely together on an interdisciplinary project, combining the fields of Statistics, Human Media Interaction and Biomedical Signals and Systems.
The focus of the position in statistics (Position 2: Statistical tools for modeling sports data) is on developing new statistical tools and approaches to model the sports data in a way that is suitable for use in interactive applications. The candidate will also collaborate to integrate these tools into a computational system for real-time analysis, in close collaboration with the other candidates.
Possible directions to shape the research project are
nonparametric statistics and machine learning
time series analysis, specifically change-point detection
Candidates should have acquired a Master’s degree in mathematics, statistics, data science or a closely related domain with a strong background in probability and statistics, as well as some programming skills in R or Python.
